Ponytails: straight vs. textured

Whether it's worn ultra-sleek or perfectly textured, the ponytail is a favorite hairstyle among all kinds of fashionistas. Do you have a favorite?

Sleek Ponytail

The hairstyle: Secure it up high, for a super-chic vibe, or low, for a "less is more" look – any way you style it, the sleek ponytail is a great way to highlight mid-length to long hair.

The style: This simple but put-together hairstyle is as appropriate for the office as it is for an after-party! Pair it with a glittering pair of drop earrings to make a statement look.

What the editors say: You can't go wrong with a straight ponytail. It's easy to achieve, it's versatile, and it's totally on trend. To maximize the sleek factor, distribute a small amount of hair oil through the middle section of your hair and your ends to really smooth everything out and add shine.

Textured ponytail

The hairstyle: Waving or curling the ends of your ponytail will give it maximum volume! Just like the sleek ponytail, this one can be worn high or low.

The style: This look pairs best with a feminine ensemble and soft, natural makeup. It's an easy way to dress up a simple outfit for running errands or to give a casual element to your evening look.

What the editors say: Waves give this hairstyle plenty of movement, lending your hair even more body and movement. Spray your hair with a texturizing spray to avoid that perfectly sculpted look which often translates to "outdated"!
