Today we are going to present you 4 unique and ravishing ponytail variants that you can try in the comfort of your home. So, let’s get started!

1.Wrapped side ponytail

Wrapped side ponytail

  • Start with dry hair but make sure you have some texture. You can use a mild spray to make sure of the same but it is not mandatory.
  • Take a triangular section of your hair from your crown and clip it above your head so that it doesn’t interfere with the rest of the part for the time being.
  • Now comb the rest of your hair back and gather it on one side of your head just behind the ear. Now secure it with an elastic band.
  • Now to embellish this further, take a small piece of hair, wrap it around your rubber band and secure with a small bobby pin.
  • Now remove the clip we placed earlier on the top section of the hair and let it free. Make a loose twist via your forehead to the side of your ponytail and secure the end with a hair pin.
  • You can add some more hairspray to show more texture and hold, but again it’s up to you.
  • That’s it, you’re done! Feel good just like a diva, for few people look as romantic as you do right now.

2.Triple French braid

Triple French braid

  • Start by dividing your hair into 3 sections. Left, right and center.
  • Now secure the center with a hair pin and one of the side with a band so they stay out of the way for a while.
  • Start braiding the loosened side. Here’s how.
  • Start by again dividing it into 3 pieces. Take the right piece over the center piece, then take the left piece over that. Add a bit more hair to the current right piece and again cross it over the center one. Continue this until you reach the back of your head in which case just secure the braid using a bobby pin.
  • Do the same with other sections of hair and secure all the braids at the back.
  • Now simply put the remaining hair in a ponytail and you’re done!

This is an extremely useful variant for workouts or tedious work routines.
