Ponytails are awesome, but you need to make sure you’re making the most of them! Everyone likes the basic high ponytail; it’s a great way to get your hair out of the way, but what if you want to look sexy AND have that convenience? For those of us who have ever considered wearing a ponytail on date night, these are definitely the answer. Let’s talk about six different ponytail styles that you can use to look gorgeous, AND feel good about yourself. Remember, for the maximum hair health, use our leave in Argan oil or one of our other Argan products for hair; you’ll be amazed at how it can enhance your ponytail!
The Knotted Ponytail
This is a pretty easy one, and you’re going to start by taking two large sections of hair from the front of your head. Once you have them, bring them behind your head and tie them in a half knot – similar to what you would do if you were going to begin tying your shoe. Pull the knot tight, but not too tight, and secure it with a bobby pin. Pull the ends of the knot underneath the rest of your hair, and secure the rest with elastic, then take two sections of your hair, bring it back, and tie another half knot. Once done, pull as tight as you need. Pull the ends around the back again, secure with elastic, and then repeat until you no longer can.
Headband Braid Sleek Ponytail
If you want the headband without actually wearing a headband, the congratulations, you can make one with your hair! It all starts with taking a chunk of hair from underneath the back of your head, and using it to make a braid which you’ll pull through and hang over your shoulder – either side will do. Bring the rest of your hair up into a ponytail and braid it all the way down. Once you’re done, lift the braid all the way over your head and to the other side – secure it to your head with a bobby pin.
Pinterest Girl Ponytail
It all starts with making a ponytail and then bringing the top section of it out. Once you have that, braid the top section of the ponytail, and you have a hairstyle to last all night!
Braided Chic Ponytail
Part your hair to one side, and then section off the hair on the same side as the parted hair. Take your remaining loose hair and put it in a high ponytail. Once done, clip away a small section of the front of your hair to frame the face. Braid the section with a French braid, and then drape that braid across the right side of your head.
Create a ponytail in the middle of your head, leaving the sides out. Then, take the side pieces, and use them to tie a knot around the ponytail, the same as you would with a shoestring. Take the strand on the right and cross it over the left strand, then take those pieces and tuck them back through the ponytail holder. Bind with elastic, pull out, and then pull the hair through. Repeat this process and fluff the knot.
Throughout this one, you’re going to need to tease your hair to loosen it up for the purpose of creating the bubbles, but to start, gather all of your hair to one side, and then divide the hair in two over your shoulder. Twist the two sections of the hair toward each other and then secure with elastic. Once secured, tease it slightly upward to create the bubble effect that you’re going for. Continue to repeat this process throughout the length of your hair, teasing it upward as you go along.
These are just a few ponytails that you’re going to want to try this summer, and if you’re having trouble with any of them, make sure you watch the video!
