Twisted side pony.

Don't limit yourself to the traditional ponytail. Keep your 'do interesting by pulling off a twisted side pony. It's refreshing, it's dainty, and it does the job of keeping your hair off your face.

Add texture and keep it messy!

Keep your ponytail messy and add a lot of texture to it for an exciting take on the classic pony.

Loose and low.

Gather your hair in an easy, loose, and low ponytail for a quick and effortless, but always stylish 'do.


Put a bow to it.

Add accessories like a bow to your pony to spice up your tresses!  

Braid it!

If you're looking for new ways to add some jazz into your mane, you can always count on braids to do just that. Incorporate braids into your ponytail for a pretty and preppy version of the ponytail.
