You’re never too old to rock a ponytail, whether your hair is long or short, we have the best styles for you!


There are many ways to style a ponytail. There is the simple messy ponytail that works for any type of hairstyle. Another name for this ponytail is the soft swept pony. It is simple: pull back the hair, sweep it upward and put it in a ponytail.

Another idea is the double side French brains. Start with a deep side part and do two French braids along the right or left side of your head. Braid it until the end of your hair and then allow the end of the hair to be out. This trick is great for keeping bangs away from your face.



The next idea is the big pompadour. It embodies the idea of classy. First you put the majority of your hair in a ponytail, and then you take the remaining portion of your hair and wrap it around your ponytail. And then twist and pin it to secure it.




One idea that I’m particularly a fan of is the side ponytail. It is simple to do, and looks great on any face frame. Firstly, part your hair down the center, and pull every portion to the side. Secondly, leave out some face framing pieces.
