4. Dress It up
Don't be afraid to be a little experimental with your ponytail hair styles.
Try using a different type of barrette other than a ponytail to hold your 'do in place.
A clip or a large barrette works well.
In fact, use two barrettes!
Pull half of your hair into the first one, then secure all of your hair with the second!
This will really dress up your look, especially if you use sparkly or shiny barrettes and bobby pins.
