The Sectioned Ponytail

This super-cool look takes only 10 minutes and some elastic bands. First, you have to pull your hair up. The next step is to use elastic bands to divide the ponytail into sections. You can pull off each section to add volume to it. This hairstyle reminds of the one Princess Jasmine had in Aladdin. It is approved by the famous actress Olivia Wild that wore this hairstyle with bangs.

The High Ponytail

The first thing that comes to your mind when you hear high ponytail is probably Ariana Grande. The young singer has perfected the art of ponytails. This hairstyle actually became her signature one. The good news is that anyone can pull off this look. Just pull your hair back and tie it very high. Ariana sometimes does only half of her hair, and other times ties her whole hair. In both cases, her ponytail is on point. Another hit among celebrities is having a sleek and shiny pony. There are many hair products available that can help you achieve the shiniest pony ever. The best way to cover the elastic band is to use a section of your hair and wrap it around the base of the ponytail.
