Beauty Pick Me Up - The Ponytail Three Ways

There was a time when ponytails were reserved for lazy weekends and softball games. No longer!

With a little product and texture, the ponytail can be just as easily dressed up and be the perfect style for any occasion!

From jeans and weekend shopping sprees with your sisters to stilettos and Happy Hour drinks, we've got three ponytail styles that are easy to do and flattering on all!

The Side Ponytail - This simple style is the perfect compliment to any summer ensemble. Simple part hair on one side and gather your hair at the neck. Making sure there are no flyaways, tie hair off.

For a smoother look, rub in a little shine serum! Need something a little fancier? Try curling the ends of the ponytail with large loose curls. Finish with a few spritzes of medium hold hairspray.

The Sleek High Ponytail - This style is sleek and pulled back, making it the best way to showcase a pretty face and decolletage. While hair is damp, rub in a sleeking serum and a touch of mousse. Gather hair into a high ponytail and, making sure that the front is smooth, tie tightly with an elastic.

Using just a dollop of holding product, smooth over the front to get rid of any stray flyaways. Run a straightener through the ponytail to ensure a sleek and sophisticated look that will last!

Go the extra step and using a one-inch section from the ponytail, wrap it around the hair tie for a finished style.

The Puff Ponytail - This style is edgy and glamorous without stealing the show. It's the less harsh version of the sleek high ponytail and is universally flattering.

You need a little texture so it's the perfect style for hair that hasn't been freshly washed. Rub in a texturizing cream and gather the top of the hair from temple to temple loosely. Clip it at the center of the head, right before where the hair elastic will be.

Loosely gather the rest of your hair into a ponytail and tie off. A few finishing spritzes of a light hold spray ensures this hair style will stay in place all night!
