We live in the ‘on-the-go’ age. People hardly have time for themselves. Why sport a boring bun when it comes to your hairstyle. Go for a side ponytail instead. Side ponytail is the most comfortable, quick and yet stylish hairstyle. It’s the on-the-go hairstyle of this age.
A side ponytail can be sported by people with any length of hair. It’s generally misunderstood for being a casual ‘while-at-home’ style. Read on to find out more about the 4 most classic side ponytail hairstyles. Learn what you can do with your side ponytail and add a little spark to your style.
Classic Side Ponytail Hairstyles
Sleek And Clean Ponytail With Step Cut
This one is for all the women with straight hair. All you need to achieve this style is long straight hair. Ask your stylist to give you a step cut without fiddling with your length much. And next time you step out, just tie your pony high and slightly towards your right.
Don’t forget to use some serum to get that perfectly straight looking pony. It is really easy to get this style. You could also take a wide strand of hair from the base of your pony and cover the band with it. This style looks really bouncy and vibrant.
Middle Length Low Pony With Fringes
If your hair is shoulder length, just get a brow grazing fringe to add to that. Don’t wear your pony high. Instead tie it somewhere midway, giving it a low pony look and let your fringe do the rest. This works best for people with slightly straight and slightly wavy hair.
You don’t even need to use serum to make it look straight. This style looks best with wavy hair. Just don’t forget to tie the pony to any one of your sides. You could also add some more fun by using a few fancy side clips.
Low Pony With Asymmetrical Layers
If your hair is long and you have asymmetrical layers thrown in, this style is just perfect for you. Tie a really low pony by merely putting together your locks. Don’t tie the pony too tight. Take a few strands of your hair from the front and let it fall on your face.
This look frames your face beautifully. The asymmetric layers add volume to your hair, making for an elegant look. Throw in the pony to either of the sides of your shoulder. This is perfect for sophisticated parties and really looks appealing. Try using a studded hair band to go with this.
Ponytail Braid Knot
If you have one-length hair, this style could really give you a fancy look. Comb your hair together in a bunch. Bring it to your sides and just tie few knots like you would do when you tie a braid. The idea is to tie 2-3 knots and leave the rest as it is.
Tie a colourful band at the end of the knots and you are done! You can also experiment by leaving a few strands lose on any one side of the face (preferably the opposite of where the pony is). This style can look really attractive if you add few colourful extensions to your hair.
