Hii Imbbians,

What is the most common hairstyle in girls irrespective of age? Ponytail for sure. This has been going on since ages and will continue in coming ages too. But a simple ponytail can be boring at times. So, why not try for something different where you can raise the ponytail hairdo a level higher.


So, here we would like to present you with some of the easy peasy tips and tricks which will raise your ponytail game like never before –

Knot Pony is in trend these days. It is just like a simple pony. You just need to take one of the hair end and cover it with the elastic band. This will look like a knot on the pony and will give a very chic look.

2. Hair Accessories:


After securing the pony, try some funky hair accessories like colorful hair extensions or jewelry to jazz up your boring ponytail.

3. Braided Ponytail:


Before going with the simple ponytail, try to braid the middle portion of your head and then proceed towards the ponytail. The braid can be loose or tight as per your hair thickness.

4. Curl ended pony tail:


Just wrap a curler at the lower end of the pony tail to give a beautiful curl. This will immediately give you a retro look to your ponytail.

5. Cool Ponytail look:


This is for the thick hair type. Try to begin by knotting your hair and then continue with the ponytail as usual. This will look very cool and perfect with any outfit, be it Indian or western.

6. Loop Pony tail:


This is my mom’s version of Ponytail for the summers. After making the ponytail insert the hair end again into the rubber band. Don’t pull it out fully. Let it hang half. If you have long hair you can try with the double loop to.

7. Dry shampoo:


Use your dry shampoo and spray it at the crown of your hair to give lots of volume to your crown portion. This will immediately give a good height to your ponytail.

8. Twisted pony tail:


Try to twist your ponytail to one side. You can twist it right from the parting to the hair end. Use secured pins for this look. This is a perfect feminine hair do.

9. Side Braids:

In order to give a ramp ready look to your hair, do braid on both the sides of your hair just before the ponytail begins. This is a simple braid which you can tighten by bobby pins. It is a very popular hair do on the award functions.

10. Fake long ponytail:


This is for short hair types who want a long ponytail. Try to do 2-3 ponytails at different lengths and tie all of them together in a bigger elastic band. This will elongate your pony tail and will give you a good volume naturally.

11. The Classy ponytail:


When you do numerous twists and loose braids before the ponytail is securely tightened, then you get such a look. Isn’t it so classy and elegant?

12. Messy Pony:


This is the ponytail for the lazy bums like me. You don’t need to comb your hair. Begin by teasing your hair with a rat tail comb which will give you lots of volume and messy look. Secure the rubber band loosely. And after securing the rubber band, comb using rat tail comb just at the rubber band area. Then finally pull the hair at both the sides to give the perfect messy look.
