Try braids: From boxer braids to French plaits, the braiding trend continues to reign supreme this season. To integrate woven locks into your high ponytail, consider a braided high ponytail as a key look. The effect of teased and texturized locks can bring a cool finishing touch to an otherwise simple ‘do. Meanwhile, a thick braided section running through the ponytail can complete your hairstyle.

Experiment with a wrapped wavy ponytail: If you prefer a loose, unstructured ponytail, consider creating soft waves and then styling your locks into a low or mid-height ponytail. Wrap a few sections of hair around the base of your pony, to bring texture and visual interest to your strands.

Think playful curls: While tightly woven and hairsprayed curls might bring memories of prom night to mind, a soft and youthful curly ponytail is a completely different story. Start off by smoothing your locks, twisting them into a low pony and then curling the ends for a feminine feel.
