How can I liven up my classic ponytail?

This season, the ponytail is back with a bang, especially when worn at the nape of the neck. Yet, you’ve become slightly bored with this trend and are ready to put a twist on this classic look. Want to find out how to liven up your ponytail for a daytime look? Look no further.
The ponytail is a look that never goes out of fashion and is super easy to create. ‘In fact, the ponytail has to be one of the simplest hairstyles to create! However, this can sometimes be to your disadvantage. Yes, the look is simple to create, but can often appear generic and anything but exciting or elegant.’
The ponytail is perfect for those of you who have little time on your hands, maybe getting ready on the journey to work. ‘I know that a lot of women get sick of their ponytail halfway through the day. Fortunately, you can easily make this hairstyle into something a bit more interesting. Anything from a braid, or twisted sections can bring your ponytail to life. Just give it a go!’
If you’ve opted for a high ponytail, ‘why not try adding a small plait stemming from the ponytail. This small bohemian touch will instantly update your look and make it appear more feminine. Another idea is to separate your ponytail into two sections, and then twist each section around the other. Instant elegance!
Have you gone for a low-slung ponytail? This time, rather than playing with the ponytail section of the style, it’s the hair tie that will make your style more original. ‘Take a small strand of hair from the underside of your ponytail, and then wrap around the hair tie. Or, try making a messy ponytail, using the low-slung version of the look’.
Our tip: If you have shorter hair, it’s a lot easier to re-vamp your ponytail by focusing on concealing the hair-tie. On long hair, the lengths of the hair need to be re-styled to perfect the look.
