From sporty and effortless to sleek and chic, the ponytail may be the most versatile style out there. And with blazing temps in full effect, it’s guaranteed to become one of your top go-to styles during the summer months. But, just because the ponytail is pretty low-key doesn't mean you can’t have a little fun with it. Check out four easy ways you can pump up your pony in five minutes or less.

Add texture

Texture is a foolproof way to elevate any ponytail, especially on second-day waves. While dry shampoo adds texture and refreshes your style, try a texturizing powder or spray to achieve a more “lived-in” look. Another tip? Work tiny braids into your pony to give your style a romantic, bohemian feel.


Wrap it up

Give your pony a more polished look by concealing the ugly hair elastic. When styling, leave a 1-inch section out, then wrap it around the hair elastic and pin it in place.

Another foolproof way to perk up your pony? A cute hair accessory. From an elegant clip to a flirty ribbon, hair accessories instantly make it look like you spent hours on your style —even though it only took a few minutes to create.

Hit the stitch

Want your ponytail to make a major statement for a night out? Swap your go-to hair elastics and bobby pins for some edgy hair stitching. Not only does stitching add drama and dimension to the classic style, it also promises to keep your look in place all night long.
