The ponytail has stayed popular with woman all over the world for so long, because it’s practical way to keep long hair controlled when you’re at work or having to battle against winter wind and rain.And it’s a great way to draw attention to your best facial feature, too.
Lots of cute ponytail ideas can be used as the base of a glamorous updo that’s perfect for a formal social event, or as a convenient way to keep cool in the summer!
Half up half down ponytail ideas
Half up half down styles are everywhere this season and rely on a cute ponytail to achieve a totally contemporary look. One of our favourite ponytail ideas has a little extra volume on the top, which you can achieve by lightly back-combing the section that runs from forehead to the crown.

Positioning of ponytail
The variety of positions in which you can fasten your ponytail is at the heart of the best ponytail ideas, because they all give a completely different beauty image. High ponytails suggest glamour, especially if you add a stunning hair accessory, asymmetric ponytails are chic and low ponytails are relaxed and casual.

To highlight a good bone structure, try a ‘no-fringe’ brushed back ponytail that’s fastened high up at the crown. This will keep all the focus on your face and you can wear lots of eye-makeup and a bright lipstick to emphasise the glamour!
This is also a good style for adding length to a low forehead as it leads the attention up to the same height as the hair fixed at the crown of your head.

Ponytails for long faces
On a long face, the most flattering ponytail idea is one that uses a fashionable long, side swept fringe to reduce the length of face and cover the forehead.
To further balance your face shape, ensure you have extra volume at the sides from pulled down choppy layered sections that are no longer than chin-length.

Lengthen a round face
And to add length to a round or plump face, you need to have a ‘bump’ of volume on the top and no volume at the sides. Round faces already have a lot of curves, so avoid curly ponytails and ask your stylist for a strongly angled fringe with trendy choppy layers.
Adding asymmetrical angles is always the best way to counteract a symmetrical, circular face shape.
Layered ponytail ideas
The asymmetrical low ponytail is another fashionable style at the moment. Get a few trendy layers for a relaxed and casual ponytail that looks good on any occasion!
