Side Ponytail

THE LOOK

A casual twist on the traditional ponytail, wearing your hair to the side is an easy, everyday hairstyle. Many movie stars have been spotted sporting a side pony, making it a popular style all over again. The fun, asymmetrical angle is on-trend, yet this style still allows for a sleek finish. This ponytail works for both curly and straight hair and can be dressed up for an evening look. Covering your hair elastic with a section of hair gives it a seamless finish.

ACCESSORIES

Wear flowers in your hair for a bohemian feel. Flower crowns or ponytail corsages are sweet accessories to turn this into a summer festival hairstyle or a style that begs for a day at the beach.

TRY THIS

If you have bangs, you can twist or braid them back to join the ponytail at the side of your head. Why not try a fishtail braid in your ponytail?

HOW TO GET IT SIDE PONYTAIL

WHAT YOU NEED

  • Brush
  • Hair elastic
  • Bobby pin

1). Brush your hair to remove any knots. Part your hair to the side.

2). Sweep all your hair over to the opposite side to your part and brush into a side ponytail. Secure your ponytail with a hair elastic.

3). Take a small section of hair from your ponytail.

4). Wrap the section of hair around your hair elastic.

5). Pin the end of the section underneath your ponytail with a bobby pin to keep it in place.

TOP TIP : Don’t try to place your ponytail too high, as this will take away from the modern look you are trying to achieve. Instead, let your ponytail rest on your shoulder for a more casual look.
