A ponytail is a basic hairstyle anyone can master. It's perfect for days when you don't want to do much with your hair. But it can get boring. I'm going to show you three ways to take your ponytail to the next level without much extra work.
(Also, sorry for all the glare on my glasses. It's hard to take pictures of yourself without it.)
This is super easy, and will only take a few extra minutes. Separate a medium sized chunk of hair on one side of your head.
Braid it all the way to the bottom.
|Sorry the steps are out of order. I realized it too late to fix. The first two pictures should be reversed.|
Gather your hair into a low ponytail, add the braid, and secure it all with an elastic. Leave the braid in your ponytail for extra texture.
This hairstyle is a bit trickier, but easy to master. Start by making a loose, low ponytail.
In the middle of your neck, make a hole in the ponytail with your fingers. Above the elastic, not below.
Pull the ponytail through the hole from the top. Tip: If you twist the ponytail a bit first, it makes it easier to pull through.
Make sure your twists look right and you're done.
Putting your hair on the side adds a feel of chic to any style. Pull all your hair to one side of your head, whichever feels more comfortable.
Gather it like you would for a ponytail. Make sure to smooth your hair around to that side, maybe with a brush.
Add an elastic and pull it close to your head.
You can add a headband or hat for a little extra pizzazz if you want.
Voila, three cool ponytails. Try one the next time you want to do something with your hair, but don't want to do a lot.
