Wearing a ponytail is such a classic go-to hairstyle especially for women with long hair but, going for a simple pulled back look can get quite boring after a while. I’m always looking for ways to spruce up a pony and luckily I found a great tutorial, on how to kick this look up a notch.
Here are six ponytail alternatives to take your look to the next level.
This boho-style look is a great ponytail alternative that adds plenty of volume for women with fine hair.
2. Soft Curls
This is very quick and simple to do. All you need is a 1″ flat iron to curl the ends and…. Voila! Soft wavy curls!
3. Side swept and waves
It makes for a great nighttime look! First add a small amount of mousse throughout the hair then use a brush to tease it up at the top. Next create a deep side part and gather all your hair to the side opposite the part. Secure it with an elastic hairband. Add soft waves to your hair with a 1″ curling iron for loose waves. Then pull some of your front pieces out and curl (if necessary). Finger comb the curls to create soft waves then spritz with hairspray.
4. Twist + Turns
