I’m always searching for new, easy ways to pull my hair out of my face when it’s hot and when I’m in a hurry (or if I am being honest, when my hair is on day three). Lately, I’ve found many ways to amp up my regular, boring ponytail into something more fun and chic. Here are four styles I am loving for a spring and summer ponytail refresh.
1. Ribbon – Whether wrapped around the ponytail or tied in a bow, this was one of my favorite looks from fashion week this spring. I have already started searching for some black velvet ribbon so I can recreate this look.
2. Ponytail Clips – I first tried this look about a year ago and now I’m always searching for fun, modern cuffs and barrettes. Anthropologie and Madewell are great resources for these types of hair accessories.
3. Braids and Twists – Braids have been trending for a few seasons now and although I still love them, I like that twists put a new spin on a similar look. I also love the idea of adding accessories to your braids to make them more interesting. I am especially loving this head wrap paired with a single french braid. It doesn’t get any more simple than that!! You could literally take it from the gym to drinks with friends.
4. Knotted Pony – This is a fantastic updated version of the wrapped pony. Now all I have to do is grow my hair long enough to be able to knot it like this! How fun is the double knot on the left? Secure the knot with a couple bobby pins and you’re good to go- quick and easy.
Which ponytail trends are you loving or would you try on your own hair this season?
