Chic Ponytail Ideas For Those Of You Who Love Experimenting With Hairstyles

Ultra-Cool Scrunchies

It is no surprise that Hailey Beiber is always working towards pushing the fashion horizon around the ‘90s. This effortlessly cool-up-do is undoubtedly one of the easiest hairdo to pull off. Scrunchies were such a defining trend of the ’90s and are perf to instantly add oomph to your overall look. You can easily nail this hairstyle by sporting your natural hair texture.

Textured Ponytail To Turn Heads

The sleek hair paired with the textured ponytail is a statement in itself and it looks oh-so chic. The best bits? It even works on bed hair. We love how fashion girls of the present are embracing their natural texture with this hairstyle. All you need to do is spritz a salt spray into damp or dry hair to get those straight-from-the-beach waves and then use a hair gel to keep frizz and flyaways at bay.

All Slicked Back

The sleek high ponytail is back this season and it should be your go-to for post-pandemic club strolls. The slicked ponytail looks polished and it requires little skill, TBH. You can create this look with a 2-in-1 finishing spray as it goes a long way to keep those flyaways at bay. 

Scarf FTW!

Looking for an easy-peasy way to style your long-AF hair? This proves that you don’t need anything more than a scarf to make even a basic ponytail look like a million bucks. This can be made simply by replacing one of the sections in your braid with a scarf. You’ll enjoy a cool new look—plus, the scarf adds major volume. For scarf hair 2.0, turn that braid into a topknot. 

For Trendsetters

Shay Mitchel has mastered the art of red-carpet dressing, and her latest look is proof. Lucky for us, the actress served up a jaw-dropping ponytail look and we are 100 percent smitten. Yes! We are talking about the bubble ponytail that just got a high-fashion makeover. This trendsetting ponytail is undoubtedly practical, can be wholly chic, and is, in fact, the perfect party hairstyle for 2021 that anyone can do. 

To Make A Statament

If you wish to take your hairstyle game up a notch, try this Bebo-approved hairstyle and get ready for a wave of compliments hitting your way. All you need to do is: Pull your hair into a ponytail and then add braids to instantly elevate the look. You can spray it with a texturising spray to make it look plumper and thicker.
