There is a ponytail for all occasions from business meetings, work, shopping and parties to big events like weddings. The many different ponytail styles are as easy to create as they are attractive. No wonder women everywhere embrace the ponytail sometimes even before their hair has reached the required shoulder-length for the long-time hair style favourite.
What Is Your Favourite Ponytail Style?
Styling ponytails certainly brings out the individualists among women, men and hair stylists. Ponytails bounce high on top of the head or low in the neck, they are worn straight back or sideways over the shoulder, they go well with hair jewellery and surprise with satin bands, feathers or leather straps. Ponytails go with middle or side partings and equally well show off shiny sleek hair, waves and playful curls. Then there are the many ways to braid, twist and twirl the ponytail. Of course, the longer the ponytail the more styling variations exist.
