Crown braided ponytail: Try adorning your visage with a crown braided high ponytail for a romantic spin on this classic hairdo. The face-framing crown braid can introduce visual interest to your ponytail and help to bring a soft touch to your face. Meanwhile, romantic loose curls and volume at the crown can flatter your tresses, and complete your hairstyle.

Big and bold curls: Whether it’s a gala or even a late autumn wedding, an ornate curly ponytail can bring your hairstyle to new levels. Create a wrapped ponytail by wrapping strands around the base of your pony, and then craft luxurious, loose curls at the base of your pony. For a finishing touch, a tiny fishtail side braid at the top of your head helps to enhance your look.

Sleek and straight: If you prefer simplicity to extravagance, there’s nothing quite like pin-straight locks to truly lend a fierce edge to your style. Try slicking all your hair back, creating a sky-high ponytail and then wrapping a thick handful of locks around the ponytail base.
