The Sleek vs. the Wild Ponytail Hairstyle

One of the traditional hairstyles for long hair is the pony tail. This is one of those hairstyles that women create when they are running out of time and they have to get ready in a hurry. If you are usually faced with such a situation, then this season will be just like heaven for you.

In the case of the spring-summer 2011 hairstyles, one of the favorites is the ponytail. There are twomain ways to create this hairstyle.


One of them is the sleek version of the ponytail. In this case you should start by adding gel or texturizing spray to the damp hair and blow-dry it.

Once it is dry, you should create a side part and gather your hair in the back. Pull the hair in a low ponytail at the nape of the neck. In the end you might add some shine spray as well.

The sleek ponytail creates a sporty look, so in case you are looking for a softer or more romantic style, then you might want to try the other versions of the ponytail.

One of the options that you have is to add texturizing spray or volumizing gel to the damp hair and blow-dry it straight.

In this case you could opt for a center part, but don’t forget to leave a little volume in the crown of the head to add a retro touch. In the end gather the hair at the nape of the neck and pull it into a ponytail.

This is one of the softer looks, but you could also go for the messy look. To achieve the messy look that you want, start with applying sea spray or texturizing gel to the damp hair and then blow-dry it.

Create a really deep side part and pull the hair into a ponytail while creating a swoop in the front. To add extra volume you should tease the crown. You can be sure that this hairstyle will never be too messy.

You might be one of those girls with a romantic style, and you might achieve this style with your ponytail as well. In this case Rodney Cutler has the exact thing that you need.
