Ponytail Hairstyles For Long Hair

1. The Beribboned Pony

This long hair ponytail is all about texture. If you’ve naturally wavy hair, dab on a little Moroccan oil to your wet hair and then blow it dry with a round brush. Thereafter work a molding wax into your hair with the help of your hands, messing up the hair to add some texture. Now brush your hair towards the back into a pony and secure it with a ponytail holder. Finally add bow to the ponytail to personalize the do.

Once considered as outdated and tweed, ribbons have been making a huge rejoinder as trendy hair accessory lately. By adding a sweet and girly bow to your textured ponytail, you can get a thoroughly modern and marvelous hair look. Add in a ribbon to this style and its perfect!

2. The Puffy Pony

With tons of texture and bulk paired with a sleek base, the puffy pony tail, is a fierce and feminine hairdo.

To get this look at home, part your hair on either side or in the middle and then pull it back in the form of a ponytail. After securing your pony with clear elastic, gently backcomb it with a boar-bristle brush to create a fluffy look. Grab a moderately thick piece of hair from underneath the ponytail and wrap it around the elastic, clipping the ends with bobby pins underneath the ponytail.

3. The Twisted Pony

Knots have been a prevalent hair trend this season — in updos, top-knots, and beyond. In this ponytail for long hair style, the pony is positioned low so as to keep it from looking too infantile.

The key to a perfect twisted pony is to start off with natural texture in the hair. Firstly, mist your straight or wavy hair with a quality hairspray like Bumble and bumble Surf Spray and dry it out roughly with a blow-dryer on low setting. As soon as you’ve blow-dried your tresses, pull them back and secure into a ponytail at the nape of your neck. Now separate the hair above the pony and pull the ends through the divided section to give it a knotted look. Wind the loose wisps around the elastic and finish off by inserting the ends into the elastic.

4. The “She’s Come Undone” Pony


While there are so many variations of ponytail hairstyles, from low to a high-and-tight pony and from side pony to straight one, I personally adore low pony a lot because it looks more up-to-date and there is a lot of room to play and personalize it.

The “She’s Come Undone” Pony is one of the easiest low- ponytail hairstyles for long hair. To score the look, you just have to gather your hair into a pony and then secure it with a hair-band close to the ends of your hair- preferably 4 inches away from the hair-tips. You may also want to use ribbon or an old piece of lace to tie the hair for a rough, modern yet girlie look.

5. The Off Sides Pony

While many of you may consider side pony as totally eighty’s, but unlike its retro version, modern side ponytail is much lower and hence looks more sophisticated and elegant than its antecedent.

The secret to an immaculate off sides pony is eliminating all separation between the hair and the neck while tugging it into a ponytail. Create a tight, low pony and fasten it with elastic, manipulating the pony to either side. Finally work a styling cream to tame any flyaways and you’re ready to flaunt your sleek, sophisticated off sides ponytail.

Hope these long hair ponytail hairstyles ease your way to style your long hair. Which ponytail you are going to have on to give that classy look you desire for? Share your valuable comments with us.
