Most of us who have had mid to longish hair since childhood will have a relationship with the humble ponytail style. It's a look our parents would have encouraged us to rock as kids to keep our hair of our faces, and we wear it to the gym. But ponytails also have an eternally chic nature to them, and can be styled up for any occasion in a myriad of ways. If you're short on ideas, here's how to wear the modern ponytail for 2020.

"They can be sleek, messy, undone, boho etc, and if you’re short on time a pony is quick, easy and pretty much fuss free," he adds. No matter what your hair colour, type, or length, everyone can rock a pony, and there are so many different ways to do it.
