And don’t worry — styling a low ponytail is very easy and you can do it from the comfort of your own home. Here are 6 low ponytail hairstyles to try out.
Voluminous Low Pony
For a timeless look, go for a voluminous ponytail. Start by parting your hair down the middle, brushing it into two sections. Curl the ends of both sections using a curling iron. Then, use your fingers to comb through the curls and gage how voluminous you want your hairstyle look. Hold the hair together in one hand while you tie a mid-level ponytail with a thin black elastic. Make sure your ponytail isn’t too tight or you will lose some of the volume. The key to this hairstyle is to leave some of the flyaways and make it look like you just rolled out of bed.
Top off the look with hairspray or wax to hold the flyaways in place. Feel free to exercise a bit of extra creativity by adding hair accessories such as a ribbon or scrunchie.
Tousled Low Pony
For those days when you want to rock a chic yet comfortable hairstyle, try the tousled low pony. Start by placing your hair half up, securing it with either a hair tie or an elastic. Make sure that half of your hair is kept loose. Take the ends of the loose hair and split it into two sections. Now curl the ends of each section using a curling iron. Afterward, slacken the curls and use your fingers to give the hair a tousled feel. Secure the loose ends for the tousled low pony with a thin black elastic. To give the hairstyle an extra bit of texture, add a bit of hairspray.
This look is perfect if you want a cute yet effortless hairstyle. The slots in the middle are also great for adding hairpins, clips or ribbons.

Place two fingers under the elastic and pull the top section of your hair through the old elastic using a new, thin elastic. Then, repeat the process for the lower section. After you have created two sections, you can use a curling iron to add soft curls to the ends of both. This hairstyle works especially well on thick hair.
