How to make your ponytail original?

Do you find ponytails too conventional? To add a twist to this classic, opt for one of these 2016 trends: plaits, a quiff, a high or low ponytail... we tell you everything!

Add plaits for a romantic touch

Whether you go for sleek, loose, fishtail plaits or cornrows (the trend seen at Coachella 2016 ), braids are THE solution for adding a twist to a simple hairstyle. They work just as well on long hair as mid-length hair.

To enhance a ponytail which is too conventional, create an African braid on one side of your head (to break away from that severe look). You have two options: either plait the entire length of your hair and include it as part of your ponytail or stop at the point where you tie your ponytail.

Alternatively, opt for a braid on each side of your head (like a crown) and gather it all together using a hair tie: best for a graphic finish.

For XXL hair, opt for a very loose braid. Once you have tied up your hair, plait about ten centimetres. Tie it up with a transparent hair tie, leaving the rest of your hair loose. Our tip? Loosen the plait slightly for a romantic look.

A low ponytail for a modern style

Whether you have a bob or long hair, the low ponytail is perfect for you. The secret for a knockout finish? Start by leaving a few strands loose at different points around your face. Once your hair is tied up, you have several options: choose some hair jewellery to enhance the hairstyle or be crafty and use a strand of hair to hide the point at which your hair is tied up. To maximise the effect, you can even wrap a strand around your hair tie. Our tip? Pull lightly on the ponytail to avoid a look which is too severe.

A quiff for a rock look

Had enough of slicked back ponytails? Give yours a rock look by following Charlotte's tutorial (a top stylist at Jean Louis David). To achieve this look, follow these three steps: backcomb the hair, gather the lengths into a high ponytail and form the quiff.

Our tip for maximising the effect: straighten your strands or experiment with a wavy effect (best for long hair!). If you like the sound of the second option, you just need to work with your hair before tying it up. Start by creating a few curls and structuring them with your fingers for a more floaty finish. If you have fine hair, it's a clever way to gain volume. The finishing touch? Beach Spray for a 'just left the beach' look.
