Back to School Cool - 5 Easy Ways to Pimp Your Ponytail This Season

It's the beginning of the season and we've got you covered with a bunch of fresh ponytail variations. Up-dos have never looked so fun!

Double Dutching

Transform your ponytail and stand out from the crowd with a double dose of Dutch braids this autumn. Not only is this an effortless up-do to style, it's a more playful way to keep your hair tidy, especially if you're the type who enjoys a bit of playground antics during recess.

All the Pretty Bows

Transform your ponytail into an elegant thing of splendour simply by wrapping a pretty bow around it. Weave your favourite ribbon around your ponytail and secure in place with a clear elastic band. Apply a medium hold hair spray and you are good to go. It's absolutely acceptable to get excited about velvet and silk ribbons, as well as colour coordinating your outfit to your bow!

Keep It Under Wraps

The simplicity and effectiveness of this quick to style ponytail will make for mind blown chatter in the classroom. Select a chord in a colour of your choice and wrap it up. Simple! Team up this modern look with a minimalist colour-blocked hair colour, such as platinum blonde.

Bandana Babe

Urban girls will appreciate the genius behind turning a simple ponytail into an accessorised hairstyle with attitude. Keep yours edgy by tying up your locks in a loose and wavy ponytail before wrapping your bandana around the elastic band. Style yours up with a school blazer or down for a more casual finish. Whichever way you choose, we are convinced that the bandana wrapped ponytail is a true winner!

Two Points Winner

How could anyone forget this old classic? The two-point ponytail is back and we are celebrating the return of one of the cutest and most versatile ponytails in hair styling history! Super easy to emulate, you can work yours into a number of variations by wearing it points high, low or with accessories and colourful hair bands. Keep it cute by matching with your bestie.
