  • Gathering long hair into a ponytail quickly brings order to hair and keeps it from hanging in your face while you work, play or engage in your favourite sport. Aside from being practical, ponytails are also stylish.

  • Come Join the Ponytail Extravaganza

    Ponytails are not only the last resort on bad hair days but a genuine hair style classic with countless styling possibilities. There is a ponytail for all occasions from business meetings, work, shopping and parties to big events like weddings. The many different ponytail styles are as easy to create as they are attractive. No wonder women everywhere embrace the ponytail sometimes even before their hair has reached the required shoulder-length for the long-time hair style favourite.

  • What Is Your Favourite Ponytail Style?

    Styling ponytails certainly brings out the individualists among women, men and hair stylists. Ponytails bounce high on top of the head or low in the neck, they are worn straight back or sideways over the shoulder, they go well with hair jewellery and surprise with satin bands, feathers or leather straps. Ponytails go with middle or side partings and equally well show off shiny sleek hair, waves and playful curls. Then there are the many ways to braid, twist and twirl the ponytail. Of course, the longer the ponytail the more styling variations exist.

    Are you convinced yet or did you always love the creative and often sassy ponytail? Please don’t miss out on our ponytail gallery below. You may be inspired to try yet another ponytail style.

    In the video, Armin Morbach, chief hair stylist at Schwarzkopf, demonstrates how fine hair can be teased to create an amazing ponytail.

    Ponytail Twist

    Elegant Triple Ponytail

    Three ponytails merge into one. Herve Leger created this ponytail for Max Azria. Three large strands of hair are gathered in the back of the head, one high up near the crown of the head, the next one about midway between the first ponytail and the neck and the lowest one in the neck. The three ponytails merge to one. First the top ponytail combines with the intermediate one and both cascade into the neck ponytail
