The humble ponytail has been around for a while, has had its highs and its lows (pun intended) and is like that knight in shining armour who always comes to the rescue when you are having a bad hair day. The ponytail is the most ideal hairdo for the rains. Here’s a look at the coolest ponytails to sport this monsoon season…

The low slung ponytail

A true tried and tested look, it will help you out through your worst days. All you need is some hair gel or wax, a comb and a rubber band and you are good to go. This look could either work with feminine flirty approach or with strong, severe, chic leanings.

Current trend: Instead of a rubber band, use a metal clip to reign in your pony.

The half pony

Don’t like all your hair in a bunch? Well… try out the half pony. Reminiscent of the school girl days, this is a lovely day look to get you through the monsoons. Keep your makeup light and natural to complete this very angelic look.

The messy ponytail

Don’t have time for hairspray or can’t find a comb. You’re in luck, babe. This season’s messy ponytail is the answer to many a young girl’s prayer. Give your hair a little body in the front to balance out the messiness and pull strands of hair to frame and flatter your face.
