Ponytail hair styles are among the easiest styles to create while still being extremely versatile. The basic ponytail involves just pulling the hair into a central area and tying it into a tail. Before creating your ponytail, however, make sure that your hair is tangle-free to prevent styling problems later on. Then use a good quality brush such as a boar’s head brush to brush the hair in the desired direction, and direct it with your fingers.
Hold the base of the tail with one hand while attaching the elastic band with the other. Ensure that the band you’re using is elastic enough to prevent the hair from being ripped or pulled and take your time in creating your pony to ensure that the base is smooth.
Here are brief descriptions of some of the types of ponytails you can create, depending on where the base is located:
Stacked ponytails are a series of small tails from the hairline to the nape.
There are also many options for slightly varying the ponytail to make it look more interesting. For example, you can take a small section of hair and use it to hide the band you’re using by wrapping the hair around the base of the ponytail. You can also use a tail comb to pull a few pieces of hair from the base of the pony for a light fringe around your face, or curl the tail of the pony into multiple curls with hot rollers or a curling iron. You can also play with various hair accessories from the basic elastic band to metal barrettes and even ribbons, or loop the tail of your pony through the opening of a baseball cap.
Other suggestions for varying the basic ponytail hair styles include curling the tail of the pony into a long banana curl with a medium-barrel curling iron; create multiple side ponies; and use add-on pony extensions to make it look fuller. If you are using add-ons, just make sure that the base of the pony is loose enough to accommodate the extensions.
