20 Mesmeric Side Ponytails to Bring Back the ’90s With A Bodacious

#6: French Braided Beginnings

Anytime you add a braid to a ponytail, you take it to the next level. Plait a thick French braid on the same side as your ponytail and weave it down to the nape of your neck. To make it twice as nice, you could braid the other side, as well.


#7: Over-the-Shoulder Curls

A cascade of curls over the shoulder is a divine ‘do for dress-up occasions. From prom to the office Christmas party, you can go for a simple but sweet style that exudes just the right amount of glamour—thanks to the curls, of course.


#8: That’s a Wrap

Wrapping a strand of hair around the base of your ponytail lends a touch of in-the-now glam to this classic retro hairstyle. It’s also an ideal way to neatly tuck any tresses that aren’t quite long enough to secure in your hair tie.


#9: A Perfect Curl

There’s actually a lot going on here, and I adore all of it. This side pony is multi-layered—it looks like a half-pony merges with a full ponytail, which trails down her shoulder in one stunning spiral curl. Anytime you need an updo or if you just feel especially goddess-like one day, here’s your coiffure. You’re welcome.


#10: Side Fishtail

Granted, this is more of a side braid than a side ponytail, but fishtail braids are so eye-catching and whimsical that you can’t really complain. You could always stop your fishtail braid at the nape of your neck, or just braid certain sections of hair.
