Find Your Ponytail Personality: High vs. Low

  • v/s
High or low? What is your ponytail personality?
Which polished pony is for you?

Whether you wear it high, low, or somewhere in-between, the ponytail is a quick and easy style that instantly polishes your look. The only problem? Deciding how high-or low-you want to style it! Let us help you find your ponytail personality, below.

Go Sky-High

This fun and flirty look calls attention to your neck and jawline. It's perfect for a girls' night out or anytime you want to up your flirt factor and it's great for gals with super long locks. To style, run some wet-look gel through your hair at the crown, being careful not to extend it through the length of your hair. Then, brush back all of your hair-smoothing out any bumps-and secure your ponytail with an elastic high and centered, just at the back of the crown. Spray with a wet-look spray to add shine. Make your ponytail pop by wrapping a piece of your hair around the elastic.

Chic and Low

For an important meeting at work or an elegant affair with family, consider a chic, low ponytail. This style-which works on hair that's chin-length or longer-is both neat and polished, drawing the eyes to your facial features or to a fabulous pair of earrings. For this look, find a part that suits you-middle and side parts look equally sophisticated with this style. Apply a small amount of serum to smooth out any flyaways and comb the hair down on both sides. Then, pull back the length of your hair and secure your ponytail at the nape of your neck with an elastic. Spray with a strong-hold hairspray to keep the style in place.
