The long ponytail makes a superb signature hairstyle. There are so many things you can do with it that you can wear your hair up every single day for four weeks and never copy the same coif. You can’t say that about many hairstyles. Whether your hair touches your shoulders or falls all the way down your back, you can reinvigorate your hair prestige with a ponytail that shows off its length.
Never Go Wrong with a Long Ponytail
Sure, you can throw up your lengthy locks and call it a long ponytail, but come on. You know there’s more to your hair’s life than that. Make the most of all those inches. Let your imagination run free—and just in case you’re having some trouble, I’ve got a few drop-dead gorgeous ponytails to pique your creativity.
#1: Freefall of Curls
Long ponytails are fun. They can be sexy, sassy, sweet, sloppy, and a whole host of other adjectives beginning with letters other than “s.” Long, curly ponytails manage to be sexy, sassy, and sweet all at once. Though this one is tightly secured, you can see that it doesn’t use a small elastic—that’s why the base is so thick.
#2: Crown High
Wearing your ponytail high up on the crown of your head adds volume and height, particularly if you tease your hair a bit. Creating a small bump doesn’t hurt, either. To give your pony a fun, careless vibe, opt for waves instead of curls or straight strands.
#3: With a Twist
This isn’t just a ponytail, but it’s not quite a braid, either. A subtle but unmistakable twist results in a next-level pony that’s ideal for a day at the office, a smoldering date, or an evening out with your friends.
#4: Long and Low
A long ponytail worn low and sleek is the height of elegance. It works in any setting, and you can dress it up in any number of ways. Those baby hairs slay all damn day, too, but don’t even think about trying to copy that unless you know that you can.
#5: All the Way Up
I can’t possibly resist this sky-high ponytail. I’m actually just in love with this whole aesthetic, but the pony and the baby hairs are the sprinkles on the cake. Along with her eyebrows, those eyes, her lips, her skin…
In the main, long ponytails seem simple, but they have the potential to be sophisticated, innovative, and even high-fashion. What length is your pony?
