It’s easy to dismiss the ponytail as little more than a lazy solution to sweltering summers, or a last resort for bad hair days. We’re here to convince you otherwise, and show you the infinite possibilities the simple pony holds! Using our fabulous employees as models, we tried three fresh twists on the old pony.
OH SO RETRO — It’s no secret that we’re vintage lovers, so why not bump it? All you need to do to achieve a retro bouffant is a little bit of teasing and super ’60s outfit to match! Just back-comb the top half portion of your mane, smooth out the top, and pull it back. Add a headband (as seen in the lead image) to elevate the look!
CLASSICAL THEORY — Looking for something a little more practical? We pinned ModEmployee Katie’s longer bangs to the side for a sleek and sporty take on the classic pony. Smooth out your tresses with some grooming cream and pull back into a slightly higher ponytail before pinning your bangs to the side for a look that transitions from the tennis court to an afternoon brunch.
GO BOHO — Want summer festival-ready locks? This boho braided ponytail is perfectly undone for a free-spirited summer style. Simply French braid the front section of your hair, and fasten into a low, side pony. Tease the ends and pull out a few loose strands for a casual look.
Let us know if you plan on trying any of these out, or if you have easy ponytail tips of your own!
