Different Ponytail Styles

Ponytail styles are classic looks for the person who wants an easy and painless way to fix her hair. Such styles are great because they enable a person to keep her hair out of her face, are sleek and timeless and altogether capable of turning a bad hair day around. A ponytail is not just a ponytail - there are many styles with which you can experiment.

Half Ponytail
One of the most basic kinds of ponytail hairstyles is the half ponytail. This style involves pulling only half of the hair back, leaving some of the hair to hang normally. The half ponytail can be quite high on the head or quite low. This look is great for both straight and curly hair types.

Low Ponytail
If you are looking for a different look, you can go with a low ponytail. This is a subtle hairstyle that highlights the face and is easy to manage. All you have to do is gather your hair at the base of your neck. This is a popular ponytail style for folks in professional settings.

Pigtails
A popular ponytail style for both children and adults is pigtails. Here, you have two or even more ponytails atop your head. This is a casual hair style that can keep your hair out of your face and is a fun way to style your hair. After all, who doesn't want to feel their hair swing while they walk?

When playing around with ponytail hairstyles, you should always consider the type of hair accessories you will use to complete and hold the desired look and the kind of hair part you want. If you have pigtails, you could use similarly colored hair ties or rubber bands. If you have a half updo, you may want to go with a loud scrunchie that is sure to be noticed or with a thin band that blends in with the color of your hair.
