A ponytail is a staple that has and will stand the test of time. Many people think of a ponytail as something that is associated with a younger hairstyle, such as for little girls and women continuing into their early 20’s. However, it works for the littlest girl to the oldest woman. We love that the ponytail is a current hair trend because of the ease and quickness of making it into an incredible ‘do.
What Makes The Perfect Ponytail?
To get the perfect ponytail, you must first decide if you want something fancy or a ponytail to rock at the grocery store. A ponytail could be categorized as a simple pulling back of the hair with a hair tie or scrunchy. However, a more complexed ponytail is more than that. It has a certain style to it, whether that is bangs falling from it or a braid outlining it. How to do a ponytail all depends on where you are going and how you want to look.
Pulling your hair back and out of your face can create an entirely different look. Wearing your hair down can become boring after a while. There are only so many things you can do to your hair when it is down. Besides that, it hides your face. Letting your hair bunch behind your head allows your face to be seen fully. Plus, you can add a beautiful contour makeup to highlight your face even more.
The Best Makeup Techniques For Ponytail Hairstyles
Makeup is supposed to enhance your natural beauty. It is supposed to be fun. Stripping all of your hair away from your face allows you to make an open canvass to play around with. A natural looking eyeshadow with a bolder lip color can make your face look flawless. Adding in a contouring makeup kit will add a hint of lightness that will make you have the best pictures when you take all of those selfies later in the evening with your girls.
You don’t want to have a heavy face of makeup when your hair is in a ponytail. It will be too much and you don’t want to look like a clown when the focus is solely on your face.
Placing the ponytail higher and pulling it back tightly is great for making sagging skin on the face to have the appearance of being lifted. It can almost be like a facelift without the surgery if the ponytail is pulled tight enough. This is a good hairstyle for those over the age of 30.
High ponytails can be dressed up for any occasion and it doesn’t matter whether your hair is curly or not. A front braid added with a high ponytail and a few hairs falling from the side of your face looks good on the young and old. A curly haired gal will appreciate a style like this.
Loose Low Ponytail
A ponytail doesn’t have to be pulled up high and tightly in order to look good. A loose and low one is less pressure on your head and can be done easily, whether you want to pull your hair out of your face and you don’t have anything to pull it back with. A beaded clip or barrette can make the ponytail go from ok to quality. The smallest details can make a huge impact. Clips work for a high ponytail, too
Ponytails can add new life to your look. After a day of working hard, you want to look good but without a lot of effort. That is what a ponytail offers. Simplicity, fast preparation, and elegance. Ponytails are not just for the young. At any age, it is a good decision for a ponytail to be your hairstyle.
