7 Easy Ponytails That Can Actually Be Called "Sexy"
If you ask us, the ponytail is one of the most underrated hairstyles going around. They can dress an outfit up or down, you can do one in 30 seconds flat, or spend hours crafting the most perfectly sleek look (if that’s your bag), but most of all they have the ability to completely change up your entire look, depending on how you play it. Here are our picks for the best ponytails that aren't that tricky to pull off….
Kim Kardashian's all sleeked up ponytail
So, the Kardashians have this look pretty much locked.down. Kim’s hairstylist Rob Scheppy has a how-to up on Kim’s site, but if you don’t feel like reading an 18-page tome on it, in a nutshell: use a straightening serum on wet hair before blowing out perfectly straight, then use hairspray for hold. My fun tip: Spritz a blush brush or toothbrush with hairspray to smooth those tiny annoying little antennae pieces.
Kate Middleton's low 'n' loose ponytail
The prime example of dressing down. Not that the Duchess of Cambridge ever has this worry, but for us pleb folk, when you are in that situation of say… your boyfriend’s work party. Of course he hasn’t taken notice of the dress code and your worried that your dress is too formal/out there/inappropriate – this is the hair to pull out.
Lauren Conrad's high ponytail
Eva Longoria's full curl ponytail
How amazing does ombré look with a full, voluminous curl? This is the perfect look for the wavy haired girl running late. Pull into a ponytail sitting just about your ears and use a volumizing powder to create slight texture around the part line, keeping it all loose and natural.
Selena Gomez's textured and backcombed ponytail
Sarah Hyland's side-parted ponytail
It’s sleek again, but not headache-inducing like some similar options appear to be. Sarah Hyland works with her face shape by utilizing a side-part and the old classic ponytail trick of wrapping a piece of hair around your ponytail. You may want to go with her look of long, dangling earrings to balance out the look, too.
Jessica Hart's just-throw-it-all-back ponytail
She might have just come from the gym, or straight off the catwalk, but Jess Hart proves that if your face, outfit and legs look that good, your hair automatically goes from messy to ‘Yep, I really am just that cool.’
