Don't let your ponytail become boring, change it up every now and again to remind yourself of what a versatile hairstyle it can be!

Bubble ponytail

Simple yet unusual, the bubble ponytail is a winner. Apply a texturizing spray to dry hair before styling (we recommend the Morning After Dust by Tecni.ART), then tie into a ponytail. Take more elastics, and tie them onto your hair with spaces of around 3 inches between them. Ensure they are spaced evenly down the ponytail, then tug gently at the sections between the elastics to create bubble shapes.

Rope braided pony

The rope braid is sure to get a second look, especially if styled on the crown of the head so that it really stands out. It's also another easy style to create. Separate the hair into two sections and twist each one around itself. Then, in the opposite direction, twist the two sections around one-another, and secure at the ends. A light spritz of Infinium Pure will make sure it holds all day long.

Ultra-glossy girl

What's the hack to having super glossy hair? If you weren't born with naturally reflective locks, the secret is all in the right hair styling products. A few drops of hair serum can be a great way to moisturize hair and boost shine, but when you're out and about, there's a secret weapon you can carry with you: the Glow Stick from Tecni.ART, a purse-sized stick you can quickly run over your hair to create non-greasy shine wherever you are.

Hidden volume

Just a little oomph of volume can do wonders to a standard ponytail. The key? A secret double pony! After blowdrying your hair, separate the top and bottom sections, tying the lower half into a regular ponytail. The, use a comb to lightly backcomb the top section - you might also want to use some Next Day Hair texturizing powder too. Gather all the hair together and secure so that the smaller ponytail is invisible. The result: your ponytail looks naturally voluminous and effortlessly chic!
