Whether it's worn ultra-sleek or perfectly textured, the versatile ponytail has always been a go-to hairstyle for fashionistas. The question is, which way do you prefer your pony?
The hairstyle: Secure it up high for an uptown vibe, or wear it low for more understated elegance. Any way you style it, the sleek ponytail is a great way to highlight mid-length to long hair.
The style: This simple but put-together hairstyle is as appropriate for the office as it is for an after-party! When you want to dress it up in an instant, simply add a glam outfit and a glittering pair of drop earrings.
What the editors say: You really can't go wrong with a straight sleek ponytail. With the right heat styling tools and products (and minimal technique!) it's super easy to recreate. To maximize the sleek factor, run an oil like L'Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil over the lengths of the pony to smooth everything out and add a lustrous shine.
The hairstyle: Just like the sleek ponytail, the textured ponytail looks superb worn either high or low. However where the styles differ is in the volume and finish. For a textured ponytail, simply add some loose waves or brushed out curls through the ends of the pony for maximum volume and movement.
The style: This feminine hairstyle looks best paired with a pretty ensemble and soft natural makeup. A textured pony can instantly dress up a simple everyday casual outfit – or it can tone down an evening look, while still looking gorgeous.
What the editors say: For ladies with naturally fuller hair, a textured ponytail is more achievable than a sleek pony because it embraces and encourages the hair's body and movement. Spritz L'Oréal Professionnel Wild Stylers Beach Waves through the tail for a tousled finish.
