Fashionably Frugal: Ponytail Styles

Fashionably Frugal – Ponytail Styles

By Megan Livesey

I don’t know about you, but I wear my hair in a ponytail A LOT! It’s easy, but sometimes it can get a little boring. That’s why I want to spice up the pony tail look with a few easy styles. It’s free, easy and cute! Who doesn’t love fashion like that!

::Wrapped up Pony

This hair style adds a little bit of style to a simple pony tail and is very easy to do! Here are the steps:

  1. Put your hair in a pony tail that is comfortable for you
  2. Take a small piece of hair from under the ponytail and wrap it around your hair tie
  3. Then find a good place in your hair tie to hide the end of the piece and use a bobby pin to secure it.
You can wear this loose or tighter. It just depends on your style! It’s that easy and it looks amazing!

::Braid into a Ponytail

This is one of my favorite Ponytail styles! Here are the steps:
  1. Take a small portion from the front of your hair after you part it. You can french braid it or just do a regular braid. Whatever you have time for!
  2. Pull that braid back like you are putting your hair in a ponytail.
  3. Make a messy bun or a regular ponytail and it will look great!
This is such a classic hairstyle that will always look good! Lauren Conrad wears this hairstyle a lot!

::Side Braid

Putting your hair in a side braid is so easy and it looks so good!
  1. Part your hair if you want and pull all of your hair to one side
  2. Then split your hair into 3 sections and braid.
  3. Loosen up the hair a little bit – it’s okay if this braid looks a little messy!
There are so many variations to this hairstyle that you can make it your own easily!

::Teased Ponytail

This style is a little more difficult, but is very popular, especially with celebrities like Ashlee Simpson and Jennifer Aniston.
What you need:
  • Hair tie
  • Teasing comb
  • bobby pins (optional)
  • hairspray
