1. High Ponytail With Bow
Here’s a simple trick to glam up your ponytail: flip out the ends and top it off with a bow that has the same vibe as the look you’re going for. Easy, right?
2. High Slick-Back Ponytail
This sleek, high ponytail paired with flawlessly laid edges is an absolute dream. Take it to the next level by adding a drop of gloss serum for that extra shine.
3. Sleek Low Ponytail
Take a look at how a simple accessory can transform your entire hairstyle. This low ponytail goes from ordinary to a cool, edgy look that tells a story with just the addition of a string at the base.
4. High Ponytail With Middle Part
As simple as they may seem, ponytails are incredibly versatile and a joy to experiment with. If you’ve run out of ideas on how to style the front part, try parting the fringe area in the middle and tucking it behind your ears. A fun look with a retro vibe!
5. Undone Low Straight Ponytail
Straight ponytail hairstyles are usually about that sleek and glossy drama, but there’s more than one way to wear them. Case in point, this undone, tousled low ponytail. It’s an upgraded version of a lazy day style—comfy, casual and cute!
6. Kinky Straight High Ponytail
For a natural-looking weave ponytail, choose extensions that perfectly match the texture of your hair. If you have type 4 hair, kinky straight is the way to go—not just for its appearance but also for the ease of maintenance. Thick, straight, and luxuriously soft; this ponytail is pure perfection.
7. High Ponytail Hairstyle With Accent Braid
You’re growing out your bangs but you want a slick-back ponytail? Try this solution: a cute braid that starts at the hairline and seamlessly flows into a high ponytail. Not only is it a stylish accent, but it also keeps your hair out of your face.
8. Mid-Height Straight Ponytail Hairstyle
This ponytail may seem basic, but that’s far from an insult—quality basics are the foundation of style. Once you master the regular ponytail, you’ll always have a look you can count on. Simplicity at its best.
9. Low Straight Ponytail Hairstyle
If you’re dealing with fine or thin hair, your straight ponytail might seem a bit lackluster. Add some body to your hair with texture spray—it will separate the strands and prevent a flat appearance. Works wonders with a low pony, but for a high pony, consider adding waves to give it some lift.
10. Low Ponytail With Middle Part
Sleek, shiny and casually draped over one shoulder, this is ponytail perfection—you can rock it at a formal event or hit the gym, and it won’t look out of place at either.
11. Low Straight Ponytail With Accessory
When in doubt, throw in a hair accessory. It’s the quickest and easiest way to create the illusion that you put in effort, even if it was minimal. In addition to a cool clip, this ponytail is also perfectly smooth, which you can achieve with a tooth brush and some hair gel.
12. Straight Ponytail With Front Pieces
Save me, face-framing front pieces! Nothing can make your hairstyle more flattering like loose strands near the face. Why? They soften and balance your features by breaking visual lines.
13. 3-Part Half-Up Sew-In Ponytail
The half-up half-down ponytail is the regular ponytail’s playful sister, equal parts controlled and relaxed—not to mention it’s the perfect way to install a weave. This cool 3-part ponytail is nothing short of flawlessly executed and absolutely gorgeous!
14. High Straight Ponytail Hairstyle
Need a length boost for your hair? Weaves to the rescue! For a quick transformation, lay your hair down and tie it at your preferred height, then add a drawstring ponytail. Can you say easy?
15. Low Straight Ponytail With Pin
Take your low ponytail from ordinary to special with accessories that complement your look. For example, this pony has been decorated with a rich pin paired with more jewelry in the same gold hue. A luxurious and elegant look.
16. Slick-Back Straight Ponytail
When you’re in the mood for a little extra oomph, throw in some clip-ins or extensions for added volume and length to amp up your natural ponytail.
17. Long Straight Ponytail
One of the rules of looking stylish is to add an unexpected element to your look. Here, the contrast of an ultra-long, ultra-sleek ponytail with soft, adorable edges is key to giving it a modern and fashionable edge.
