2. Add a Braid to Your Ponytail

If you’re going to stick with the tried and true ponytail, give it a bit of glam with a braid. Start by securing your hair at the top of your head like you always do. Then braid a small chunk of the ponytail, using a tiny rubberband or clip to hold it at the end. This is a fast hairstyle, but the addition of the braid gives it some flair that makes it look like you spent a good amount of time prepping for the day.
