1. Sky-high ponytail for a brunch date
We’re obsessed with Ariana Grande’s signature sky-high ponytail. Not only is it super easy to create but also looks oh-so-stylish. Simply gather your hair into a high ponytail and wrap a piece of hair around the hair tie to conceal it. This one is perfect for a glam date night with your besties or a fun Sunday brunch.

What’s chicer than a basic ponytail? A twisted ponytail. Simply take two sections of hair and twist them till the end. Secure with a hair tie and voila! It really can’t get easier than this. This look is perfect for a wedding, as it keeps the hair away from your face, so you can dance the night away looking glam without having to worry about flyaways.
3. Rhinestone crimp ponytail for a fun night out
Notice how each style is made unique with just a few added details. That’s just how nuanced Ariana’s looks are. With rhinestones woven right into her braid, this crimped hairstyle from 2018 reigns supreme.

Yes, we’re loving all the ponytail variations. Can you tell? Complete with a side parting, Bella Hadid’s slicked-back ponytail exudes a 90s vibe thanks to the inward flick.

How does a hairstyle that simple send ripples throughout the beauty community? A change from our sleek up-dos, this one’s all about the texture. Simply tie your hair in a low ponytail and curly the lengths of your hair. Run a brush through the curls to loosen them, spritz some hairspray to set it in place and you’re ready to slay.
