The Smart Ponytail Hairstyle

If you’re bored of your “go-to” hairstyle or just want to mix it up a little, then try this easy to do hairstyle that will look perfect for the office. To nail this quick and easy look, you need nothing more than a brush, a bobble, some bobby pins, and hair spray.

The ponytail hairstyle can transform even the messiest of heads!  Wear your ponytail low in the nape of the neck if you have short hair, or high on the crown with volume if you have mid length or long hair.

STEP 1: PREP YOUR HAIR

To get started, it’s important that your hair is brushed and tangle free. Then part your hair down the middle before deciding on your exact parting.

STEP2: CHOOSE YOUR PARTING

Middle partings are a top hair trend for the coming season and look great whether you wear your ponytail sleek and straight or tousled and wavy. Opt for a sharp low side-part for a seriously chic and trendy hairstyle.

Pump up the volume and add lift to the crown of your head by pulling up some of your hair with your fingers.

STEP 3: CREATE A PONYTAIL

Pull your hair back from the face and secure with a bobble. Remember to leave the ponytail slightly loser if you want to work a few strands of hair free to cover your ears and create a softer look. If you want a serious boss look then pull the ponytail tight so it creates a sharp, neat hairstyle.

Top Hairstyles For The Office – The Ballerina Bun

Not only is the ballerina top knot a top trending hairstyle but it is a practical and versatile look too. Wear it messy with loose strands for a relaxed, messy bun hairstyle, or sleek and glossy for a polished and sophisticated office look.

You’ll need a brush or comb, hair elastic and some hairspray.

STEP 1: GET RID OF TANGLES

Comb through your hair to make sure it’s tangle-free.

STEP 2: CREATE A PONYTAIL

Use a brush or a comb to create your ponytail and make it tight – this will create a more groomed top knot hairstyle and ensure any lumps and bumps are smoothed out. For a relaxed ballerina style bun, use your fingers to pull your hair away from your face before securing in a ponytail.

Pull your hair back into a ponytail, using a comb or brush to remove any bumps. Secure the ponytail, making sure it’s tight.

STEP 3: TWIST AND WRAP

Now twist your hair all the way to the end of the ponytail. The tighter the twist the more secure the bun. Next, build the base of the bun by wrapping your hair, around the base of the ponytail to form a bun shape.

If you feel you have twisted too tightly or not tight enough – simply start again!

STEP 5: SECURE THE BUN

All that’s left to do now I secure your ballerina style top knot in place with pins. Add decorative hair clips or a glitzy clip for a dash of sparkle. Then spritz with hairspray and away you go!
