I wear my hair in a ponytail probably five times a week but it’s a work ponytail: simply pulled back and stuck in a band. But, I do love to see other ponytail styles, especially dressy ones that are great for going out. A ponytail can be so much more than a simple scrape back and tie. Check out these fabulous ponies and follow the video tutorials to change up your style.
