How do you give a regular ponytail a lot more personality in just a few minutes? By letting it loose!

Not completely, however - that'd defeat the point – but just enough to show your laid back side. Here are some different ways you can loosen up your hairstyle without losing control of your hair...

Ponytail texture

Give a normal ponytail an edgy, urban finish with just a small amount of texturizing gel to help you create flyaways exactly where you want them. Our favorite is the Fix Move light hair gel by Tecni.ART. Apply to half-dried hair down the lengths, finish blow-drying, then comb into a smooth yet textured ponytail.

Sleek low band

Go low, but don't bring your style score down! Try a graphic metallic hair cuff over the top of your regular elastic when wearing a low ponytail. Play with the light by ensuring the top section of hair is super shiny (keep the Tecni.ART Glow Stick in your bag for last-minute boosts and flyaway control).

Loosened-up volume

Embrace those flyaways if, and only if, they are showing off the different tones in your hair! For deliberate wispy flyaways that catch the light and show off your color, like this chocolate brunette example, you'll need extra volume on the lengths. A volumizing mousse like Full Volume (Tecni.ART) on damp hair is a great way to create shape from the get-go, and won't leave you with an unnatural texture. If you have naturally thin hair, use a comb to tease the lengths before tying your ponytail for extra body.

The low, loose and occasionally wispy ponytail is our professional pick for summer!
