We often need respite from bad hair days and sometimes, hats just don’t cut it. Fear not, the simple ponytail has stepped up and become trendy! It’s increasingly becoming a red carpet staple. What’s better is that it works with all different types of hair textures. Here I decode some of the easiest pony looks.

1)The Low Ponytail
The biggest misconception is that all ponytails must be high. Check out Freida Pinto who rocked a low pony with a severe parting. The key to this look is to ensure that the hair is tied at the nape of the neck.Get some inspiration from this tutorial:
2) The Sleek Ponytail
Craving a minimalist look? There’s nothing a simple blow-dry and serum can’t fix. Take a cue from Kareena Kapoor who keeps the focus on her face with a poker-straight one. Want to mimic this look? Check out this tutorial here:
3) The Pompadour Ponytail
The glammest of them all. Nargis stole the show at the IIFA Awards 2012 looking so contemporary wearing a sari and a pompadour ponytail, or pouf as it’s popularly called. I personally love this, since it gives you two looks in one. Since this one requires a bit of practice, watch the video here:
So now step out and become a show pony and swish that mane!
