5 easy ways to pimp your ponytail

Whether you're hitting the books or heading into the office, the ponytail is a classic weekday hairstyle. However classic doesn't mean boring – just try one these creative interpretations of the humble pony.

The plaited pony

Practical yet sophisticated, the plain mid-height ponytail goes to a whole new level simply by adding some very trendy double French braids to the look. The result is effortless with maximum impact and screams 'off-duty-model'. Top marks!

The criss-cross pony

Perfect for either day or night, this look is a certain head turner. The secret is all in the artistic wrapping. Weave your favourite ribbon around your ponytail, and then tie with a delicate bow. Fix your creation in place by using clear plastic bands under the ribbon and adding a little for a natural, yet strong, hold.

The tightly wrapped pony

The long wrap is so simple, yet so effective. Simply choose a long wrap, secure it to the base of your ponytail and then wrap it around and around and around... Meanwhile, if you're inspired by the combination of the white wrap with blonde locks then talk to your L'Oréal Professionnel colourist about Dia Light, the ammonia-free semi permanent hair colour for tone-on-tone colour.

The bandana tied pony

Adding a bandana accessory is a speedy way to give your ponytail a little urban style. Keep your ponytail low, relaxed and wavy and then add the attitude by wrapping a bandana around the base. Don't worry about being too precise when tying it – the loose edges only add to the cool factor.

The two-pointer pony

What's better than one ponytail? A two-point ponytail, of course! Super easy to recreate, the tight twist and black bands give this style plenty of sass. Start with your first ponytail high up on the head, and then add a lower second ponytail to create the dual-step structure. For the best results, ensure your hair is in excellent condition by caring for it with L'Oréal Professionnel Liss Unlimited.
