The ponytail. Undoubtedly one of the most popular and versatile hairstyles out there. The popularity of this `do however doesn’t mean that you have to keep it basic.

1. High & Sleek Pony
We are obsessed with this perky, sky-high ponytail. But don’t worry, you don’t have to be Beyonce to pull off this sleek look. The trick to this smooth, slicked-back `do is to take a two-ponytail approach. First, create a small “base” ponytail before sweeping back the rest of the hair around it. By creating this anchor, your ponytail will stay sleek and won’t droop down from extra weight. Add some cascading curls and wrap the base of your pony with a two-clip weft of your fave
2. Low Side Ponytail
The best part about this tousled look is that works best on second-day hair. Yes, you heard us, you don’t have to wash your hair for this one – simply add some dry shampoo and pull your locks into a low pony. This side ponytail looks amazing with natural waves or a loose curl, creating a feminine twist. To complete the look, pull out some face-framing strands and give them a gentle curl. Swoon.

5. The Half-Up Pony
In 2018, we’re seeing the top not being replaced with an effortless half-up ponytail. We love this look because you can add your own twist to it depending on how you feel. Whether you want to embrace or natural texture or opt for more glam loose curls, you really can have fun with it. We have to give props to the talented,
6. Wrapped Pony
The wrapped pony has such a feminine and pretty touch to it, we can’t get enough. After putting your hair in a ponytail, whether high or low, take a chunk of hair and wrap it around the base of your ponytail, adding some bobby pins in to secure it. This simple detail elevates a normal ponytail to a party-ready look in less than a minute. Sounds like the perfect solution to your next night out look 😉

8. Centre Part Pony
One of the easiest ways to spice up your ponytail game is to change where you part your hair. If you usually rock a side part, mix things up with a sleek centre-part ponytail like Selena’s. The key to recreating this look is to add a couple of drops of your favorite hair oil. Sleek, shiny, and oh-so-stunning.
9. Blair Waldorf-Inspired Ponytail
With Gossip Girl back on Netflix, we had to turn to our fave character, Blair Waldorf for some major hair inspiration. A simple hair accessory like a hair bow can be the easiest way to elevate your ponytail. To recreate this look is to create your favorite ponytail – we think a low pony looks extra chic – and tie a bow of your choice around the base. Rock this preppy look and soon you’ll be signing off all of your messages XOXO.
We hope that these 9 ponytail hairstyles will provide some inspiration for the next day you just need to tie your hair up. No matter the occasion, one of these stunning ponytail hairstyles are sure to be the perfect option.
