Ponytail Hairstyles

Praise the ponytail, our favorite shortcut for those hot summer days when you wouldn't dream of turning on a hair dryer. But it doesn't have to look like an afterthought. If you have just an extra minute, you can transform your ponytail from blah to beautiful with these easy, stylish ideas.

Roxy OlinTousled tail

Give your tresses oomph a la Roxy Olin. Make a ponytail at the nape of your neck or low and off to one side. Wrap small sections of hair around the closed barrel of a curling iron (this method creates more relaxed curls than clamping hair in the iron). Use your fingers to break apart the curls and add texture; you're going for an undone look. Spritz with hairspray and fuss up the ponytail a little more to channel Olin's full, stylish 'do.

I love the idea of the braided base, thanks for that! I feel like a french braid is super classy and can make any hairstyle look great! I may even try the popular-by-pinterest look of the braid on the back of your head leading to a bun.
