The ponytail is the go-to hairstyle for any girl who’s on the rush to get her hair done (this is something you can whip up in less than 20 seconds) or is not exactly having a “great hair day” or just wants to get that classic “I’m a serious and independent woman” kind of look.
You’ve been wearing ponytails for a very long time now, but you probably haven’t tried any ponytail variations yet. Yes, there’s more ways than one to wear this favorite hairstyle of yours. The list below gives you three wonderful twists to this classic up-do that you’d surely want to try sometime soon.
The first is called the textured side ponytail, created by Nina Dimachki from Kerastase. This ruffled look lends a casual and laidback feel to your ensemble for the day. It’s perfect for going out with friends or having a picnic with the family or hanging out at the mall.
L’Oreal’s Joseph DiMaggio teaches us the second ponytail variation, called the crimped ponytail. It’s something you could wear for dinner dance parties, or when you’re hitting the club with your girlfriends.
And finally the voluminous ponytail, also by Dimachki, gives you a polished retro look that’s stylish and serious at the same time. Wear it to work or when you’re meeting up with a client for dinner.
Of course, it doesn’t end with the hairstyle. It’s also important to tailor fit your makeup to your hairdo. For example, for the first look, peachy cheeks and rosy lip stains would look nice. Keeping it minimal is also the way to go for the second hairstyle. But for the third hairstyle, a more striking makeup is ideal like a bold red lipstick or dark eyeliner.
