Every morning, when we look at ourselves in the mirror and we're getting ready to start our day, we invariably ask, "What am I going to do with my hair today?” Let's face it, we hardly have the time to do something fancy with it. So, we normally choose an easy option: a ponytail, but "easy" isn't the word we'd use to describe this hairstyle, far from it, because a successful ponytail is a tricky thing to master.
In an interview, Rihanna stated that getting her hair cut transformed her music. Even Miley Cyrus echoes the same feelings,"I'm trying to break out of that long hair, big boobs stereotype that women feel they have to conform to. I mean, we're not living in the freakin' 1950s - short hair is OK. Have people really got so little imagination?"
Hair is not a simple accessory to complement our outfits, on the contrary, it is a crucial aspect of our image, personality, and essence. Fashion experts have concluded that a good hairstyle is a synonym of success. Singers and actresses have agreed that the way your hair looks will give you full access to stardom.
By taking these declarations into consideration, we will provide you with seven different ways to wear a ponytail. Getting ready in the morning will no longer be a problem. These simple but fashionable looks will help you show the world the successful woman you are. Just bear in mind that feeling comfortable with yourself is the most important aspect of your look.
Before we start sharing our recommendations with you, we suggest you to get some elastic bands that match your hair color, hairspray, a curling iron, or a flat iron.
For a casual night out with your friends:
Pull your hair back into a low pony at the nape of the neck and secure it with an elastic. Then add another elastic a couple of inches below, repeating down the length of the ponytail.
To go to work:
Untangle your hair with a comb, add some hairspray or dry shampoo to make your style last longer. Do a high ponytail, take a 1-inch section of hair from the underside of your ponytail and wrap it around the hair and with a hair pin, tuck it in.
To go to a romantic date:
Part your hair down in the middle and do a normal ponytail. Before you tie it with an elastic, use a little bit of hairspray to smooth out your hair, and make it look neat.
To go to an important event:
The secret consists in turning your head upside down. Grab all of your hair with both hands. Comb it and use a hair tie to hold it up.
For a relaxing evening
You can try this style with clean hair or dirty hair, but it must be dry. Take a section of your hair, and back comb until the strands have the desired volume. Take a 1-inch section of hair from the underside of your ponytail and secure it with a hair band.
To go to a party:
Separate your hair into two sections (the front and the back). Brush the loose section (the back) of hair and gather it up into a ponytail using an elastic band. Back comb the front section of your hair and gather it up. Then add the back part to the ponytail. This style will give you a rocker chick look.
To go to the gym:
Start by doing a high ponytail and then do a fishtail braid. With this hairstyle you will look trendy and your hair will always be in place.
Doing your hair in the mornings should no longer be a problem. A ponytail shouldn’t give you a boring look, so, you can use other accessories to make your ponytails more interesting and different; it all comes down to using your imagination. If you combine these styles with any outfit, we guarantee you’ll have an amazing day, and won’t have to worry about the fashion police.
