With hairstyles, it is currently similar to fashion: the less agitated, the more effective the look. That suits us, of course - because honestly, even in lockdown number two, the motivation to get dressed as usual is consistently low. A ponytail is not only quickly styled and uncomplicated but also very trendy. Different hairstyles can be created with a ponytail. These five styles give the classic ponytail a trend update that doesn't require any great hairdressing skills.
The low ponytail is the most modern variant of the ponytail. Tied deep in the neck, the styling takes the childish look of the ponytail - the hairstyle looks cool and grown-up. The low ponytail works with both a middle and a side parting and, thanks to its optical restraint, can also be complemented with accessories such as a bow in the hair or a headband. Minimum effort, maximum effect.
Whether tied high or low: a ponytail with extra straight hair looks super sophisticated - and that only with minimal use of a straightening iron (please don't forget heat protection!). The sleek ponytail fits into the office context as well as on festive occasions and creates a grown-up and at the same time cool look.
Who says a ponytail always needs to be styled in the middle? Moved slightly to one side, the side ponytail looks like a completely new hairstyle - but only with long hair. These can then be carried forward over the shoulder, which looks particularly harmonious. Important when styling: tie your hair low in the neck, otherwise a 90ies look à la Spice Girls will result.
The high ponytail not only makes you look a bit bigger, but it also slims your face. The hairstyle creates a sporty look that works with both straight hair and slightly wavy hair. The high ponytail is particularly casual when it is worn without parting: Simply comb the hair evenly back and tie it tightly in a ponytail.
What works sleek, of course, also looks messy: a ponytail that looks untidy gives the hairstyle a touch of “Je ne sais quoi” - as if you were too busy for time-consuming styling and had just tied your hair in a pigtail to have a clear view of the essentials. If you have natural waves, you can simply intensify them with a salt water spray, if you have straight hair, grab a curling iron and twist a few irregular waves in your hair. But be careful: The "mess" should be limited to the ponytail, so please comb the top hair properly anyway.
