The ponytail– the most basic of hairstyles, right? Wrong! Celebrities, stylists and social media fashionistas have been reinventing the ponytail for the new millennium. Even if you don’t have super long hair, you can easily bump up your ponytail style. Check out these fun ponytail styles for every occasion.
The Formal Pony
The ponytail can work for the most formal of occasions, especially when paired with a braid crown. Start with a french braid across the crown of your head from temple to temple, then gather loose curls into a low ponytail. You can also use a faux-braid headband and disguise the ends of the headband with loose strands tucked behind each ear.
The Weekend Pony
Braids and ponytails work well for fun and casual occasions as well. Braid a single, thick chunk of hair from the crown of your head to the end. Gather the braid and the rest of your hair into a medium to high ponytail and, voila, you have a fresh ponytail for summer parties.
The Work to Play Pony
This style works for day-to-night looks and for long and short hair. Create a volume at the front of your head by backcombing the hair at your crown. Smooth the hair along your forehead back over the volumized section and gather the rest of your hair into a high pony. Use a piece of hair from underneath the ponytail to wrap around the elastic band. Secure the wrapped hair with bobby pin.
Ponytails work for so many occasions and are a classic look that will always be in style. At Red Market Salon Miami we can help you choose the perfect style whether you are running off to a work meeting or wanting to look glam for a Gala.
