Ways You Can Wear A Ponytail That Are Anything But Ordinary

The ponytail has long been a hairstyle that women choose as a way to wear their hair regularly.  But the regular plain jane ponytail doesn’t always offer much to those around you.  There is nothing wrong with that when you are having a day at home cleaning but maybe you want to jazz it up a bit.  You can do that with these easy options that take your ponytail from ordinary to extraordinary.

The first option is the high volume ponytail like Julianne Hough is wearing in the picture above.  For this ponytail, you want to have lots of volume at the crown.  You can get that volume by curling your hair loosely with a curling iron and spraying it to give it texture.  Then you will want to tease your hair at the crown to give that added volume.  Be sure to spray it well with hairspray as you smooth down a top layer to hide the teasing.  Gather the hair into a ponytail being careful not to pull it too snug.  If you pull it snugly, you may very well pull the volume out.  Secure with a ponytail holder.

Another option you can used as opposed to the basic pony is the side pony.  This is very easy.  Simply gather your hair to one side of your head.  Usually the side opposite of your part works best for this.  Secure with a ponytail holder and you are set to go.

For a polished ponytail, you will make a ponytail just like you would ordinarily with the exception of leaving out a small section of hair to wrap around the outside.  After you secure the ponytail with a holder, take that section of hair and wind it around the ponytail and secure it with a bobby pin.
