Best New Ponytails
Whether you’re starting a new job, gearing up for summer travels or just in need of a fresh look for 2016, changing up your hairstyle can be an awesome way to give yourself a glamorous boost. If you have long hair, you might be asking yourself what hairstyle will help you take on the new year like the boss that you are. Maybe it’s time to turn your attention to the ponytails that are taking over the runways and salons. Check out some of the best new ponytails for 2016.
Second-Day Hair Ponytail
This is the perfect ponytail if you have thick, luscious locks that you don't like to wash and dry every single day. Just sweep your hair back into a half-up ponytail just above your eyeline on the back of your head. Pin your bangs up with a bobby pin to create a half-pompadour look and freshen up your day old roots. It’s a great, low-frills, messy look that still has a glimmer of sophistication.
This look is growing in popularity, and it's easy to achieve with a few quick steps. Pull your hair into a low ponytail and then tease it out to get it as big as you can. Use an elastic to tie it up a few inches below the first pony tail — there should be big volume between the elastics. Put one or two more elastics all the way down to the end of the ponytail and voila! You have a super trendy and playful look that can take you to work or out on the town.
The Sleek Pony
Go for a Hollywood look with this smart and sleek ponytail. Just sweep your hair back into a high ponytail at the top of your head and make sure to smooth down the top and sides with a straightener before styling to keep them sleek. Use a product like Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anti-Humidity Smoothing Milk along the length of your ponytail to get an instantly smooth and sexy look.
You can do a more austere look with a runway-inspired, side-part ponytail. Just part your hair to the side with a comb and pull it down around the sides of your head into a super-straight and low ponytail. It’s a very polished style that is easy to create and will keep you looking sharp. Use a straightener for extra straight hair, but be sure to spray it with Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Flatiron Perfector to protect it from heat and to give it extra shine.
