Easy and Pretty Ponytail Updos For Long Hair

Try a high ponytail enhanced with a head scarf for an effortless yet pretty look! Add accessories like a hair flower or decorative barrette for even more dimension and dimension!

This adorable and elegant ponytail updo may appear complex to achieve, but it is easier than you think! The ribbon at the base of this ponytail braid helps conceal its hair tie, adding an elegant detail that will have everyone raving over your style!

Sleek and Straight

A sleek ponytail is timeless and elegant; it suits any special event, from casual to formal events. To achieve the desired results, always start with clean, dry hair before applying lightweight styling products like pomades to control frizz and add shine without weighing your locks down.

Give your ponytail extra depth by using a volumizing spray or thickening tonic on wet hair before drying it out, giving it a tight pull on the sides with fuller crown coverage.

Low, center-parted ponytails are another stylish look ideal for girls with long, straight hair. Easy to execute and stylish when accessorized with delicate accessories – Billie Eilish often rocks this style with slim sunglasses and simple hoops for an ’00s vibe! This style also works well when worn with shag haircuts or piecey layers because it helps highlight shorter strands more.


A messy ponytail can be charming and daring, pairing well with many outfits. This look can also be edgy and playful, quick and straightforward. Perfect for quick updos that will leave you looking chic and pretty; best with wavy hair with loose strands left out to add texture – perfect for formal events and casual outings with friends.

For this updo, divide your hair into three sections and tease the crown area before pulling it all into a low ponytail. Next, loosely twist one front section over and drape it over the ponytail; pin one of your twisted branches just above it to create a ribbon effect; add additional stray pieces of hair for finishing touches if necessary – this look works particularly well on triangle face shapes with wavy or curly locks!

Head Scarf

Are you searching for an easy way to add glamour and fun to your ponytail? Look no further than a head scarf as the solution. Whether it is to cover up a third-day blowout or show off a new color, this stylish piece will turn heads.

To achieve this look, start with a high ponytail and braid it halfway down using a three-strand braid. When completed, wrap the end of a hair scarf over an elastic band before pinning it with bobby pins to secure it.

Tease out some face-framing strands for a romantic touch and pair with thin sunnies for a look evoking early 2000s style – this pairing works equally well for everyday casual wear or semi-formal events!


One great way to upgrade the ponytail is braiding it. Braiding can give a romantic, soft finish or tight structure for a more polished style.

For this look, begin with a side part and secure your hair back into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck. Leave some face-framing strands loose for dimension and to prevent an all-too-flat look from taking place.

Grab a chunk of hair just below your ponytail, braid it into a simple three-strand braid, roll and secure with an elastic, repeat this for your remaining locks, then spray on some light-hold hair spray to set the look in place.

Consider wearing your hair in a double or triple-braided ponytail for an elegant, sophisticated look for special events. This style looks sleek and sophisticated!
