Who says we can’t have the best of everything? For this perfect ponytail style, the ribbon marks the transition point from a simple dutch braid to a delicate fishtail, helping the shift to seem completely natural and beautifully intricate all at once.
2) Cool Chignon Twist Ponytail Style

Another take on the classic pre-chignon flipped ponytail for girls, this deceptively complicated twist will have people wondering exactly how you did your hair. Folding separate curls up and over makes for a much less obvious hidden hair tie, and gives a naturally elegant feeling to this easy hairstyle.
3) High Top, Tight Curls Ponytail

This pretty hairstyle takes advantage of the hair’s natural elements to keep loose curls out of the way and showcase the face. This is a stellar updo for any ponytail girl, but we would mainly recommend this style for short to mid-length hair! Anything longer might work best with a slightly lower ponytail tie.
4) Perfectly Flipped Wrap Around Ponytail

Setting up your flip a little higher up gives you the perfect chance to do a larger wrap around just underneath it! This hairstyle for women goes from cute to classy, depending on what hair decorations you add into the flip. It’s a great way to showcase colorful hair ideas!
5) Hair Bump High Ponytail Hairstyle

This cute and easy hairstyle is a modern take on the 1960s bouffant, redone as a classy 2018 ponytail style. The bump turns this cute high pony into a mid-height one and sweeps the bangs forward. This look would be great to go to work and hit up any kind of party, retro or not, right after.
6) Color Contrast Tumbling Waves Ponytail

If you’ve got a hair of different hues, or you’ve just touched up your highlights, this look is made for you. Soft curls offset the light upper color against the main, darker one. While this style, with its draping tresses, would still look good on anyone, we think it fits recently dyed hair best of all.
7) Braid Based Ponytail for Girl Genie
This pretty hairstyle would not look out of place in a modern I Dream of Jeannie remake! A very high pony, coupled with a wider wrap around, give this look its “genie” feel, and the tight center mini-braid absolutely makes it. Adding braids is a good way to get a lot of mileage out of an otherwise simple look.
8) Raised Chignon-Flip Ponytail Hair Twist

This is another cute hairstyle for women who want to balance their working days and exciting nights. Using the bouffant-style bump here helps center the ponytail a little more and leaves room to showcase a larger twist for the flipped ponytail. It’s a beautiful mix of casual and classic.
9) Fierce Double Braid Bound Ponytail

Unleash your inner warrior with this gorgeous look. A style like this proves that pretty ponytails can still look battle-ready. Four simple dutch braids go into the wrap around this ponytail, making this easy hairstyle look that much more complex. Try it the next time you need a confidence boost.
10) Rippled Ponytail Twist and Wrap

This style falls under the category of sort of easy, sort of hard. It’s another artfully messy look, which means you can get away with a few more mistakes than your usual cute style for women! The little twists and almost braids of this look might take a little bit longer, but the end product is very worth it.
11) Twining Curls Side Ponytail

A doubled set of curls go into making this pretty updo perfect. Because of the way the curls are set up, it’s hard to see that any sort of hair tie is involved at all, giving this a very natural look. Pick the side you want attention drawn to and set your hair up to frame your face, leaving just enough on the other side to soften your look.
