The ponytail is one of the basics of hairstyles and can still be styled in very different ways. We show you the most beautiful ponytail hairstyles and explain how you can make them yourself.
Probably hardly any hairstyle can be styled as differently as the ponytail. Whether loosely tied at the back of the head, a little tighter in a sleek look, or voluminously tied at the top of the back of the head – there are many different ideas to implement for the ponytail.
With a sleek ponytail, it's important that your hair is tight and shiny. You start by parting. This can be a center part or a side part like actress Nilam Farooq.
After that, separate the bottom hair and tie the top part together so you can straighten the hair. After straightening the bottom hair, continue to straighten the top hair.
To make your hair really shine, you can spray some shine spray on your hair. Then tie your hair into a deep ponytail and the sleek look is complete.
For a knotted ponytail, section a section of your hair below the back of your head and comb it up. Then tie the braid and loosen the strand. Then wrap the sectioned strand around the braid. Finally, you fix it with a small bobby pin so that the braid really holds.
The "bubble tail" is now a trend hairstyle at every fashion week and is slowly becoming a part of everyday life. To style it, you should first equip yourself with several hair ties.
You start by tying a regular ponytail. Decide for yourself whether you want to put it on top or a little further down on your head.
Then divide the ponytail into several parts of the same size, which you each fix with a hair tie. Finally, pull the sections apart a little to create a spherical look.
The high ponytail is one of the classic braids. The instructions are very simple: tie a braid at the top of the back of your head.
You can decide for yourself whether you want the look to be messy or sleeker like presenter Aminata Belli. The high binding gives your braid volume and makes it look extravagant.
The exact opposite of the high ponytail is the low ponytail. Here, too, the instructions are simple: simply tie a braid far down at the back of your head. Many stars wear the hairstyle in a sleek look, but the braid is also popular in the messy style.
Our tip: If you want the hairstyle to be a little more playful, you can also let your front strands fall loosely out of the braid.
