Ponytail with Bangs

Ponytails are a great way to incorporate bangs into your hairstyle. There is a variety of ways that you can cut your bangs to spice up a pony. Off-centered bangs can be a sexy and exotic way to polish a pony. Straight bangs are a terrific way to hide a large forehead, or to add a final addition to a ponytail.
Curling your bangs can take a casual pony and turn it into a formal hairstyle. If you plan to curl your bangs, you will need to cut them longer to allow room to curl. Side bangs can be curled into very cute ringlets with your finger when hair is damp. Straight bangs do not have as many curling options as side bands, but they can still be curled.

Sophisticated or Formal Ponytail

Sophisticated ponytails are commonly found on the back of the head close to the neck. You can dress-up a sophisticated ponytail with a synthetic hairpiece, or a pretty ponytail holder. Here is a quick and easy sophisticated ponytail that you can try, next time you need a quick and easy to maintain hairstyle.

Using a brush, smooth the hair back and secure with elastic. If you are styling African hair, you should use a covered ponytail holder. It will minimize the damage that is caused to your hair. Separate the secured hair into eight sections. Use a curling iron to curl each section into ringlets. You can cover the elastic by wrapping one of the sections of hair around to elastic and pinning into place. This pony can be transformed into an evening hairstyle easily by separating the hair into four individual segments and pinning up into a bun.
