Ponytail hairstyles: single style or seeing double?

Single ponytail or double the trouble?

It's festival season, and our hair needs to be kept up and out of our faces while we dance and jump about to our favorite bands. The solution: a ponytail, of course. But should you stick to a single, or double up? Vote here for your favorite type of pony!

Single style ponytail

The hairstyle: An oldie but a goodie, the ponytail is our go-to hairstyle for a fuss-free look that can still show off your lengths if you pull it round to the side a little.

Styling: The festival season can be tough on hair, so make sure you bring some dry shampoo to quickly spray over the roots, massage in with your fingertips, et voilà! We recommend the Super Dust powder from Tecni.ART, perfect for banishing greasy roots and styling a tousled wavy ponytail.

What the editors say: Give your ponytail some peps by using an unusual tie. Ribbons, for example, add a cute element to a look, and are gentler on the hair than an elastic.

Double trouble pony

The hairstyle: No, you're not wrong with sensing some 90s nostalgia in this look, the double ponytail definitely adds some ziz-a-zig-ah!

Styling: Styling is simple, just flick your hair forward and separate into two even sections. Then, while the hair is still flicked over, tie up the two ponytails at the crown of your head and lift your head back up.

What the editors say: Baby Spice and Sporty Spice have merged and reemerged in 2018, and we love it. Don't forget your dry hair shampoo on the roots, which are particularly on display in this look.
