Ponytails: straight vs. textured

The ponytail is a fashion classic whether textured to perfection or worn ultra-sleek. Its everyone's favourite style – but which do you like best?

Sleek Ponytail

The hairstyle: Show off your poker straight hair with a ponytail secured high on your head, or play it cool with a low one – a ponytail is the easiest style whether your hair is long or mid-length.

The style: The style is a chic option whether you're heading to the office or to a party later – just pair your style with some statement earrings to stand out and be on your way to the next event!

What the editors say: If you're at a crossroads on what to do with your hair, a straight ponytail should be your go-to. It is a versatile style that will always be in fashion and the easiest to achieve too! Add some oil to the middle section of your head and the tips to make your hair even smoother and sleeker, just to maximize on this look!

Textured ponytail

The hairstyle: A ponytail with more volume, this one has waves or curls at the end it. You can wear a textured ponytail either high or low, depending on your style for the day. With its messy texture, it will look great with all lengths of hair that can be fashioned into a ponytail.

The style: This hairstyle goes best with a softer and more natural look. If you're just running your daily errands or going out for a nice dinner, your textured ponytail will give your outfit a bit of a different look. Wear this one on a day that you want to dress up your casual outfit a little more.

What the editors say: Waves give your hair the freedom of movement and body. Use a texturizing spray to avoid making your hair looks perfectly sculpted, as a "measured messy" will always work better than a perfectly made ponytail!
