Let’s be honest; who doesn’t love throwing their hair up into a pony tail. Pony tails are purely functional; they pull the hair out of your face, keep your neck cool, and don’t get in your way. But they can be extremely unflattering and look messy and careless.
Not anymore. Here are five ideas to try and spice up your pony tail.
1. Add a headband
A sparkling headband or even a skinny pop of color band can upgrade your ponytail look! Having a headband is flattering because it breaks up the harshness of the look.
2. Add a ribbon
Tying your hair with a ribbon over your elastic can add a sophisticated touch to the sloppy ponytail. You can also braid your hair into ribbon before throwing it up into a pony tail for a cool, bohemian look.
3. Add braids
By adding some side braids into your hair before pulling it back into a pony tail can give the look a softer, more girly appearance. Braids are super flirty and very in right now.
4. The Bump
Kim Kardashian always rocks this look. It’s a twist to the sleek ponytail, and give a sexy edge to your ponytail. Simply tease the hair at the crown of your head and pull it back into a sleek ponytail on the top of your head!
5. Side Ponytail
The functionality of a ponytail is to keep your hair out of your face. A side pony does just that with a more relaxed approach. A soft swept ponytail to either side of your head with a part in your hair can be very flattering as it cascades and elongates your neck!
