You can never go wrong with ponytails. They’re our saving grace on a bad hair day. They’re the unsung heroes of the hair world (if that’s even a thing) and a ponytail goes with just about any look you can think of.

But just because you’re sporting a ponytail doesn’t mean you have to keep it basic. Yes, there are ways to spice things up when it comes to ponytails.

Here are some of our favorite ponytails and styles we recommend our readers to try out:

High and Sleek Ponytail

We’re absolutely in love with Beyonce’s sky high ponytail look. Kudos to her stylist! This one’s perky, quirky, and absolutely gorgeous. The best part? It’s not an “in-your-face” look. It’s perfect for a date with your beau or when you want to go clubbing with the girls.

All you have to do is tie your hair in a high ponytail and curls the lower part of your hair with a curling iron for a sleek, dramatic effect!

Low Side Ponytail

This one’s simple but you can play around with it as much as you want. Just tie your hair to the side and if you have bangs, then let ‘em loose! This’ll create a chic and edgy look, giving the traditional dull and boring side ponytail an amazing twist!

Dutch Braid Ponytail

Dutch Braid Ponytail If you love Dutch braids, we’ve got something even better! Add them to your ponytail! The results are stunning. And you’ll absolutely fall in love with this hairstyle.

Start by braiding your hair the way you do for a Dutch braid. When you’re half-way done, instead of finishing the look, tie it into a low ponytail, or a high one. It’s your choice.

This one’s got edgy written all over it. It’s perfect for a night out with the girls!

Double Bubble Braid Ponytail

This one’s a pony and a faux braid! It’s stylish and offers the chicest look when you want something simple but trendy. Tie your hair in a ponytail and then take a few elastic hair bands, then take every strand from your hair, tying it around the ponytail to create a “bubbled” look.
