Ponytail Hairstyles Can Be Simple But Elegant
We have found 9 ponytail hairstyles for long hair that will leave you inspired to copy at least one of them. They range from simple messy to elegant. Let us know what you think
1) Elegantly Sweeping Wrap-Around Ponytail Style
This pretty hairstyle puts us in mind of classical Greek Antiquity, a look that might not be out of place in some art gallery—or on you!
The beautiful sweep of hair over the sides of the head, and the way it loops over and around the base of the ponytail itself,
softens the contrasts of this simple and clean style.
2) Natural Curls Twist Ponytail Hairstyles
This sweetly simple hair idea is perfect to dress up or dress down for whatever event you have planned!
Tying off the base with another loop of hair makes the style look much more intricate than it actually is
and adding in a little spray of pearls takes this look to the next level.
Trade in flowers or ribbons for a beautiful springtime alternative!
3) Curled and Perky Ponytail Style Lift
A low-pony with the high ponytail lift. This cute look is the ideal ponytail hair for screaming “go-getter”, while still keeping it casual.
Wrap-arounds that hide the tie are a popular way to keep that effortlessly natural feeling and take advantage of how easy hair ties are for anyone to use.
This might work with straight hair, but curls are best for adding an extra element of class and drawing the eye!
4) Pretty High Pony Hairstyles With Braid Accents
This gorgeous look is designed to frame your face with softly curling bangs and a beautiful, loosely laced braid.
The higher ponytail helps draw the braid upwards,
to show off any accessories and keep your hair from hiding the decorations of whatever top you’re wearing with it.
5) Styled Waterfall Ponytail for Wavy Hair
Getting an updo to look this good might be a little more work, but it’s definitely worth it! This sweeping modern hairstyle easily emphasizes the hair’s natural colors, going from dark to light at the tips, with the hair wrap-around higher up adding a bright little “pop” of lighter blonde.
6) Artfully Messy Low Ponytail Styles
If you’re looking for a cute and easy hairstyle, try this quick, “I rolled out of bed looking this good” updo.
This style works best with straight hair and bangs!
Wispy strands of hair fall around the face and jaw, and tying it off a little lower gives the hair a more natural shape,
making this a simple and cute hairstyle for women.
7) The Classically Fabulous Flipped Ponytail Haircut
The chignon is definitely an awesome style, but its first step, the flipped ponytail, is absolutely one of our favorites.
For an active girl who might prefer to leave her hair hanging a little more freely than a bun would allow,
this is a cool, in-between hair idea that can still dress up your look a little bit more.
8) Loose Top “Braid and Pony” Hairstyle
If you want an easy hairstyle, but you hate having your hair in your face, try a cute braid on top and tie it off before you have to fiddle with loose ends.
Hairstyles for women tend to be a little on the “tighter” side, which makes us love this loose look even more!
We’d recommend this updo for anyone, including undercuts and shaved sides.
9) Pretty Ponytail Styles for Loose Curls
This simple style is a little more relaxed than our fifth recommendation,
for those who want the waterfall waves without all the work.
A slightly lower ponytail sets those curly bangs free from this ponytail haircut and
adds to the overall “bouncy” feeling of this upbeat updo.
