If You Like a Ponytail, You'll Love These Easy 5-Minute Hairstyles
The humble ponytail is always there for you when a bad hair day hits. Reliable and no-fuss, it serves almost any occasion, from black tie events to weeknight boxing classes. For most of us, a hairband around the wrist may as well be a permanent bodily fixture, and come 3 p.m. when our blowdry has frizzed, a low-slung ponytail is always the solution.
To say that the original version is tired though, is being generous. In the spirit of change, we thought it necessary to do a quick hair refresh and add some much-needed variety to your run-of-the-mill pony. Naturally, we hit up Pinterest for some inspiration and unearthed a few cool-girl five-minute versions that won’t take up all your bathroom minutes. Consider these the next time you’re having a third-day hair crisis.

If you’re not currently sunning yourself in Capri, you can at least add a scarf to your ponytail for a European holiday vibe. Pile it high to lift your face, or wear it low if you’re feeling lazy.

Another fresh idea is to tie a long piece of ribbon around a low-slung, messy pony. We love the idea of a velvet ribbon so it doesn’t feel too school girl.
