If you’re tired of wearing your hair in a ponytail or braid daily, try switching up your style with a few quick and simple hairstyles. These hairstyles are perfect for any occasion, whether a work presentation or a date night.
One easy and chic hairstyle is the side-swept twist-out. Start by making a deep side part in your hair. Then, twist back the front section and secure it with bobby pins. You can add colorful clips for extra flair. Another option is to try Bantu knots for a casual and textured look. Pin your hair in a high puff style, leaving some front locks unpinned for a stylish and easy hairstyle.
The pineapple method is a fun and protective style that adds volume to flat twists without pulling them too tightly. This hairstyle is excellent for people with busy schedules as it can be done quickly and lasts about two weeks. To achieve this style, use a heat-protectant spray and a curl-enhancing cream. Let your hair dry fully before twisting it into voluminous sections. You can either loosely pin them or add bobby pins for extra volume. For an adventurous touch, add some color by dyeing various areas with colorful dye. Test a small section first to ensure safety for color-treated hair.
A low bun is a practical hairstyle that keeps your hair out of the way while looking elegant and romantic. Tease your hair strands before applying hairspray for a polished appearance. Consider curling your hair or adding extensions for more volume if it is thick. Add a small pearl necklace or other elegant accessories to complete your look.
Double French Braid
The double French braid is a fashionable, simple hairstyle worn high, sideways, or low. Start by parting your hair in the middle. Then, take small sections of hair from the left and right braids and cross them over, pulling them into a loose ponytail. Wrap the ponytail around itself to create a low bun shape and secure it with a hair elastic.
Half-Up with a Bow
Half-up hairstyles are a great way to add glamour to your daily look. You can easily dress them up with bows. Secure your hair into a low ponytail just below the occipital bone, and add a bow for a simple, elegant half-up look. To add drama, choose an oversized bow that matches the width of your ponytail. For a more polished appearance, hide bobby pins behind the bubble.
Achieve an effortlessly stylish and feminine appearance with a high ponytail. This hairstyle is perfect for day trips or date nights and pairs well with sleek dresses and statement jewelry. Start with a clean middle part, fishtail, braid your lengths, and secure them with a small elastic. This hairstyle works exceptionally well with naturally wavy hair.
Adding a hair accessory, such as a statement scrunchie or floral headband, can elevate your high ponytail. Ponytail hairpieces are versatile and can be worn in many ways, such as pinning it at the base of your ponytail for an updo or wrapping it around your crown for a boho-inspired style.
Another option for a high ponytail is to create a bubble effect. This is achieved by pulling your unwashed hair back into a low ponytail and securing it with clear elastics. Then, gently pull apart each section to create the bubble effect. Add wavy accents and pin some baby hairs from the sides of your face into the center of the ponytail for a quirky and glamorous touch.
