So-pretty ponytails to try this summer

Public service announcement: There are still plenty of summer days left. And if you’re anything like us, the thought of enduring over two more months of oily skin and frizzy, angry hair has us on the edge of a full-blown panic attack (we’re dramatic, sorry ‘bout it). And despite our rain dances and many, many prayers, the warmth and humidity aren't going away anytime soon — so, we’re adapting our go-to beauty looks to be 100 percent warm-weather friendly for the rest of summer. And for us, that means no more hairstyles that leave our necks dripping in sweat.

Yep, we’re going for ponytails. But don’t worry. We’re not suggesting you tie your hair into a basic, blah ponytail every day until fall. Because after combing through the most inspo-worthy of street style, we’ve found the prettiest, coolest ponytail styles to attempt this summer. Including sleek, ribbon-tied looks and messy side ponies, we’ve rounded up 30 ponytails that are incredibly easy to copy and anything but boring. Check out all 30 ahead, and prepare to maybe, just maybe, enjoy the rest of summer.
