Think ponytails are just for little girls and trips to the gym? Think again! This simple and easy hairstyle can actually be quite grown-up when it wants to be. Here are three ways to update your pony and make it stylish for both work and playtime.
1. The low side-pony. Gather your hair at the nape of your neck and secure it with an elastic. Then throw it over one shoulder – it’s that simple! This style looks especially chic on gals with curly locks. It’s also an easy way to keep your hair out the way without sacrificing any fashionista points.
2. The natural elastic. When you pull your ponytail back, leave a small swatch of your tresses from the base of your neck out of the hair-tie. Then take that loose hair and wrap it around your pony so it hides the elastic entirely, and secure with bobby pins. Voila – you’ve got a chic and sophisticated look to showcase in an instant!
3. The inside-out pony. Pull your hair into a low, loose ponytail, then create a small space just above the elastic. Take the end of your pony and put it through the hole, then pull tight. In just a few seconds you’ll have a stylish hairstyle that’ll look like it took hours.
