With Ariana Grande-inspired ponytails to flipped-up ponytails, trust that you will never look at ponytails the same way once you’ve seen this lineup. Here are some of the most popular ponytail hairstyles that we absolutely adore:
The retro flipped hair trend is everywhere in the form of a ponytail or half-up ponytail. Celebrities are obsessed with this flipped-out-to-perfection-at-the-ends hairdo that gained popularity in the ’60s (thanks to Jackie O). Celebs sporting the look include Kylie Jenner, Hailey Bieber, Jennifer Lopez, Ariana Grande and Sophie Turner, to name a few. You could try the look with softer, curled ends or opt for a side part with flipped in ends.
High Ponytail with Tendrils
Want a retro look that’ll get you compliments on compliments? Channel this ’90s look by securing your ponytail with a colourful scrunchie or go for a more subtle look with a clear elastic. Once you’ve ensured that your ponytail is as high as you’d like it, brush out any unwanted lumps for a smooth finish.
Tip: Transform an average ponytail by merely wrapping it with a fabric-covered hair tie for a statement look.
Voluminous curls perfectly balance your hair slicked back in the front. You can never have enough volume so spritz on Batiste Blush Dry Shampoo for a ponytail full of body and texture.
For a Grande-esque look, hairstylist Chris Appleton suggests investing in bungee elastics which keeps your ponytail perfectly positioned without slippage. For an extra layer of ‘chic’, try the Duchess Collection Hilton Pony. Consisting of high-quality hair fibre with luxurious texture and durability, the Hilton Pony is perfect for this popular hairdo.
Low textured Ponytail
For an effortlessly textured ponytail, always start by spraying Design Essentials® Natural Almond & Avocado Curl Enhancing Mousse. This is a lightweight foam used to enhance curl definition, separate curls and reduce frizz on all curl types. Formulated with wheat protein, it penetrates the hair cuticle for stronger, healthier-looking hair. It also provides a soft, pliable hold and leaves a luminous shine!
Ponytail with Laid Edges
Comb edges into a cute design and set your ponytail at the top of your crown for plenty of volume. Try On Wig & Weave’s smoothing edge tamer which offers maximum hold. The edge tamer is packed with argan and coconut oils that provide shine and moisture to the hairline without buildup residue.
The Bubble Ponytail takes less than ten minutes to pull off. Just tie your hair up into a ponytail, section off the ends of your hair with equally spaced elastics every few inches. Pouf out each section of hair by pulling gently and voila!
