5 Ponytail Tutorials – New Twists On An Old Favorite

Okay, I admit it. I have become a little hair lazy since this pregnancy really started kicking in. I am tired and nauseous and none of that equals me wanting to make myself beautiful in the morning. So, I went on the hunt for simple ponytail tutorials that while easy to do, would also make me look like I put forth a little effort in the morning. There are tons of ways to spice of the traditional ponytail to create something fun and cute anytime of year.

1. Short Hair Messy Ponytail Tutorial

I never thought that making your hair appear messy would be more work that just a regular ponytail, but it is slightly harder to do. It looks cute if done right though and is a good get up and go hairstyle.

2. Side Braid Ponytail Tutorial

This is adorable and can be a little more dressy. I can see it working for shorter hair too, if you just did the top braid and then left the ponytail portion plain instead of braiding it as well.

3. Wraparound Ponytail Tutorial
This is a really sleek and chic look. I love how simple it is and any length hair could do it, as long as you can make a low ponytail at the nape of your neck. 

4. Curly Side Ponytail Tutorial

This is such a romantic hairstyle. It would take a little more time than the others if you do not have naturally curly hair, but it would still be pretty quick. I also think this would work for all different lengths, but you may need to pin your hair to the side instead of putting it up with a ponytail holder if it is shorter.

5. Knotted Ponytail Tutorial

This is one of my favorites. The girl in the picture has long hair, but I promise you, that you can easily do this with short hair. You can even do it with your hair half back. Trust me, I use it all the time. It is really simple and cute when you are on the go.


  1. Cute! I've finally got long enough hair to do pony tails so I'm always looking for ways to do my hair with it.
