Ponytails are the most utilitarian of hairstyles and have many variations on the theme. They are especially useful for women and men with long hair, to prevent tangling while engaged in active pursuits. Ponytails are classic, cute and chic hairstyles that suit any number of activities and personalities. But while many people think of these quick styles as just a casual look, they can actually serve many purposes and work as a starting point to more elaborate styles.
The ponytail is created simply by pulling the hair back and binding it in a band of some sort. The point at which the ponytail is gathered can be virtually anywhere – on one side or the other, but is most often at the back, centered over the occipital bone. The hair is generally left to hang loosely from the ponytail holder. This is the basic ponytail.Â However, there are many ways to modify the cute ponytail hairstyles. You can try out ponytail styles with straight, wavy or curly hair. Also, tying the ponytail on different positions of the head can create different looks. Mentioned below are some of them. TakeÂ a look!

Comb all the hair except for the bangs, and tie them into a ponytail a little below your crown. Comb your bangs and check.
Puff and Ponytail Style
These look great as formal hairstyles. Take out some hair from your front section, and tie the rest into a high ponytail. Then comb the front section of your hair, take them back and make a puff, secure it with hair clips and hairspray.

Once you’ve curled your hair using a curling iron or hot rollers, allow the hair to cool for a few minutes. Gather all of your hair into a ponytail at the top of your head.
