Ponytail hairstyles are the best hairstyles for women with long hair who are on the go. They are well known as the best solution to bad hair days, and can be easily accomplished on your way out the door. However, with just a little effort, ponytail hairstyles can be made beautiful as well as easy.
Low Ponytail Hairstyles
Low ponytail hairstyles are easier on the hair than high ones, as the high ones pull hair tighter and can loosen roots. Low ponytail hair styles were all the rage at New York Fashion Week this year. Two kinds of ponytails were popular: low, fanned out and full, and smooth and low with curled ends.
How to Create a Ponytail?
To create ponytail hairstyles that are low, fanned out, and full (in other words, they look more like a real horse’s tail), side part the hair and then dry the hair without putting any effort into smoothing it. When the hair is dry, create a low ponytail and then tease the ends so it fans out. If your hair is thick, it will hold the shape itself; if it is finer, use some styling spray or lotion to help achieve this look. This style is strong, mature and modern.
For ponytail hairstyles with curled ends, use a flat iron to get the hair as smooth as possible. Side part the hair again, gather it into a low ponytail, and then use the flat iron to curl just the very ends of the hair. Use a product for shine if necessary. This style is more feminine, girlish and retro.
