How to make half ponytail hairstyles

Half up half down hairstyles are the perfect marriage between casual and chic, without the effort that a full updo requires. If your hair tends to get greasy, oily, or frizzy within a day or two, a half-up hairstyle can be a quick and easy way to deal with oily hair or extra frizz and still look stylish. Whether it’s a half up bun hairstyle, or a traditional half ponytail, we foresee half up hairstyles sticking around for a while.

Achieving the perfect half-up hairstyle is easier said than done, however. If you have thin hair, you likely know the struggle of tying half your hair up into a ponytail only to be left with a few hair strands at the bottom to work with, or having your half ponytail flatten and fall throughout the day.

Just look at ponytail queen Ariana Grande or Khloe Kardashian—if you’ve been following both these celebrities’ hair journey, you’ve likely seen them rock a similar half up half down hairstyle to the one shown in the following video, with just the right amount of volume and bounce, without falling flat. So, what’s the secret? Check out the video below or read on to learn how to achieve the perfect half up half down hairstyle every time.

In this tutorial, Rachel uses her Seamless Chestnut Brown Luxy Hair extensions. By strategically clipping in a few wefts, this hairstyle is quickly transformed from thin and flat to thick and voluminous.

Step 1

To start off, separate your hair at the nape of your neck and clip a 4-clip weft in from your set of hair extensions. This will give the look extra thickness, and ensure that once you tie your hair up into a half ponytail, there is still ample hair left at the bottom. Be sure to brush the weft out before clipping it in.

Step 2

Next, separate your hair at the top of your ears, and clip the largest 4-clip weft in. Then, separate your hair at the widest part of your head and clip a 3-clip weft in. You should now have enough extra thickness at the bottom portion of your head.

Step 3

For extra volume on the sides, separate your hair at your temple and clip a 1-clip weft in on either side.

Step 4

Now it’s time for the fun part! Gather the front section of your hair toward the back, into a half up ponytail. For added thickness, clip two 1-clip wefts upside down, underneath the ponytail before tying it off.

Step 5

Then, secure the ponytail with an elastic at the top of your head and pull it as tight as possible, to create that bouncy effect. Be sure that the half up ponytail is tied at the very top of your head, otherwise, you may find that it falls flat.

Step 6

Brush out your hair and spray a bit of heat protectant all over your hair.

Step 7

Using either a hair straightener, curling iron or curling wand, separate your hair into 1 inch sections and begin curling. If you are using a curling iron or curling wand, the curls will have a rounder shape. If you use a straightener, the curls will fall in looser waves. When curling your hair, be sure to curl away from your face, for a softer, more flattering look. Be sure to follow the instructions here to make your curls last all day.

Step 8

Once all your hair is curled, including the half up ponytail, spray a little spritz of hairspray all over your hair and brush out your hair gently, so the waves become soft and smooth.

Step 8

Smooth down any flyaways by applying a bit of hairspray and using a fine tooth comb to smoothen down the hair.

Step 9

Finally, for that extra volume and bounce in the ponytail, spray hairspray underneath the ponytail and use a teasing brush to backcomb the bottom of the ponytail. This will ensure that the ponytail remains on top of your head instead of falling flat.

How to make half ponytail hairstyles

On the days that I have legit no idea what to do with my dirty, third-day hair, I can’t help but rely on the easiest hairstyle of all time: a half bun. Sure, it might sound kinda basic, but half-bun hairstyles are my little secret to looking somewhat put-together while I’m putting off wash day a little longer. And I’m not alone, either, considering the massive amount of celebs who not only rely on them (lookin’ at you, Kendall Jenner, Yara Shahidi, and Hailey Bieber) but have also turned half buns into an actual hair trend.

So, basically, you officially have extra reasons to feel good about throwing your hair into a half-up knot for the fifth day in a row. It’s fashion, people. But if you’re not sure how to find the best half-bun hairstyle for your specific hair or you just want some new inspo to change up your look, I rounded up the easiest half-bun tutorials of all time, below.

1. Best Half-Bun Hairstyle for Long Hair

How to make half ponytail hairstyles

While, yes, half-bun hairstyles look super intuitive, there’s actually a little bit of skill that goes into them. Instead of grabbing your hair and immediately twisting it into a bun, first separate the top half of your hair into a tight ponytail and secure it with an elastic. Pro tip: If you’re after a little extra volume, gently tug your ponytail to add some height up top before you move on.

Then, tease the tail of your pony with a comb (this will make your bun look extra full), and twist your loose hair around the base. Set the bun in place with a few bobby pins and a quick spritz of hairspray, and you’re all set. See? That took, like, an extra 20 seconds and the payoff was huge.

2. Best Half-Bun Hairstyle for Short Hair

How to make half ponytail hairstyles

Alright, so that lob you just got on impulse might be a little more difficult to style in a bun, but it’s definitely still doable. Begin your half-bun hairstyle by combing your hair into two parts right in line with your temples. Then, gather the top section of your hair (think: from your hairline to the crown of your head) into a high ponytail. After you secure your hair with an elastic band, pin small sections of the ponytail around the hair tie to cover it, creating a cute lil baby bun.

Forget everything you know about the half ponytail! If you feel that this style is reserved for the well-behaved, serious girls, you need to consider that by thinking outside of the box, this style can give you a fierce, rock chick look.

The rules of the half ponytail. Like all types of ponytails, the half ponytail is one of the first hairstyles that little girls learn to do. It’s easy to do, really practical for everyday life and can be styled in different ways to suit your needs and style. Achieving the look is simple: you take part of hair from the front of your head, sweep it back and tie in the middle of your scalp. The half ponytail works especially well on mid to long hair and it looks good on both straight and curly hair.

The classic half ponytail. For many, the half ponytail is the best way to achieve a sensible look. Moreover, a clear advantage of the style is that it’s very easy and quick to do! Brush your hair and separate it into two parts, one at the front and one at the back. Tie the hair at the back with a hair band or a slide. Then simply straighten or curl the rest of the hair which you have left down.

The sixties-inspired half ponytail. To achieve a retro half ponytail, you need to give volume to your hair to ensure it has plenty of body, by way of a small quiff. Like with the classic version of the half ponytail, separate your hair into two parts, but then backcomb the part which you will tie up at the back. Spray a mist of hairspray to fix it into place.

The wet-look half ponytail. Adopt this look this summer to really stand out! Apply some thermo-protective straightening spray before straightening your hair. Then, with the help of gel, flatten the hair you have separated from the rest towards the back of your head following the same method as before. However make sure you use the gel sparingly so you achieve a classy result. To finish, fix your hair into place by using a strong hairspray for a long lasting hold.

Hey guys it’s Jordy and welcome to my fourth video for Sitting Pretty.

I am creating this beautiful Ariana Grande half updo look for you guys today.

This is one of my hands-down favourite looks to do with my Sitting Pretty halo hair extensions, so make sure you keep watching.

Okay so I got a brand new halo.

This one is the medium halo, I had the fine and the thick but I thought I’d give the medium a go with the different colour.

The other reason I got a different colour is because of the sun, my hair is getting so much lighter, so I’m going to use this one in this tutorial.

So I’ve already gone ahead and curled these bad boys.

But I’m going to show you how I curl my hair, because I haven’t done that yet.

So I’ve got my curling wand and I use the thickest barrel.

I’m going to section off my hair in three parts, starting at the bottom, and bringing all my hair up, just making sure it’s out of the way.

Split your section into two parts and grab from the back about a one-inch section. And starting from the back, you want to curl away from your face.

Okay so now I have curled all of my hair and I have curls the halo, I’m going to put it all together and show you how it’s done.

So now I’m going to put in our halo.

Just section off the front of your hair, put it all up and away. Then grab your halo, slide it to the back of your head like that and release.

How easy is that?

Oh my god it looks so good.

I was actually quite surprised when I got this halo because I was really worried it was gonna be too light for my hair, but it actually blends really nicely because my hair is so blonde at the moment. Just from being in the ocean, and the summer sun.

So having that other halo with a different colour for summer and winter, I find is really really beneficial.

Oh my god I’m so obsessed, it looks so good!

Alright so what we’re going to do is we’re going to brush all of that out. do is we’re just gonna brush all of that out.

So with this comb we don’t necessarily have to worry about the wire of the halo at the top because we’re gonna be putting it all back.

But what we want to do, is we just want to make sure that the hair is not sitting underneath the wire around the hairline, because it’s not going to be a good look if it’s all sitting underneath.

So just make sure you get all of that – can we just appreciate how good this halo is looking?! Look how seamlessly it finishes. I just want to leave it like this! Okay, don’t be silly.

Okay so next step putting the half updo.

I like to use my brows as kind of like a guideline.

Kind of where the point of your brows are, go up and around, because that’s going to be just above where the halo is sitting. The halo is sits there, you can see it, but we’re going to be putting it up and then fiddling with that later.

So make sure it’s all up, make sure it’s out of the way.

It’s already looking so cute!

Then you want to grab your comb where the tip is, and just bring some of that back down to hide the halo. You can’t even see it! And then you want to do the same with the other side. Follow that line, and just take some of it out like so.

So use your comb – just be careful of that wire because it is gonna sit there, so make sure you don’t dig too deep when you’re coming backwards – and you want to secure it just with a hair tie at the base of your head.

Pull it out at the base, and then like we did in the last tutorial, I’m going to grab the ends and grab the top and pull in opposite directions because that’s gonna create a really perky ponytail at the top of your head.

Ahh it looks so cute!

Okay it’s just pull it out where you want to. Make sure it’s really secure. Again, when you’re pulling your ponytail, doing this by pulling both ends is going to elongate that ponytail instead of keeping it quite short.

Oh my god, stop it, it’s so cute!

Okay so you can obviously tell how much I love this style.

I just love it. I think it’s gorgeous. I think it’s super cute, oh my god I’m just obsessed.

That’s really about it. Also, before – we always have to do this because it’s just how we do ponytails.

Now to finish it off, and you don’t have to do this, but I like to do it as per usual in all of my tutorials I have done, grab a little back piece of your ponytail and grab your texture spray or hairspray, and just spray this and wrap it around your hair tie. And secure it with a bobby pin at the back of the ponytail, just so it’s not seen at the front.

Okay if you want to have a little bit more volume around the sides, just grab the pieces around where the halo is sitting and just back comb so it’s got a little bit more volume.

To finish it up I like to use a little bit of texture spray, just spritzing it. Not in any particular area, just gives it a little bit more hold. And same at the base of my hair as well where the curls are, gives a bit more texture to the curl.

Oh my god it’s so cute!

Alright. so this is my final look for the Ariana Grande inspired half updo.

I hope you love it because I really do.

It’s honestly one of my favourite things to do with the halo and it honestly makes a lot of a difference having that little bit of extra hair for this look because I find if I have my own natural hair, it just you have a little half way wispy bits.

It just looks so much nicer and thick and beautiful, I’m just totally vibing this look.

And it’s so nice to have the halo not show, and have all these little clips shown everywhere. Because it’s sits at the back of your neck so all of your hair is hiding it, you don’t have to worry about these nasty little clips showing throughout the day.

Now if you’re loving these videos just as much as I do, please make sure you give us a thumbs up, subscribe to Sitting Pretty’s YouTube channel and leave any questions you have below because we love hearing from you.

When you look back at picture day photos from your childhood, we’re sure they’re filled with absolutely adorable hairstyles. Pigtails with bows, tight ringlet curls, and locks decorated with beads are style staples from everyone’s childhood, but you probably wouldn’t be caught wearing those hairstyles now.

While not all of our favorite childhood hairstyles matured along with us, others (like the half ponytail) are perfect for adulthood—as long as you know how to style them. If you’re ready to bring your half ponytail from third grade to a date night with your partner, look no further. We’ve found three ways to make your half ponytail look just as grown up as you feel—dark brown hair or red.

How to make half ponytail hairstyles


The fastest and easiest way to elevate your half ponytail is to add a killer accessory. The hair accessories that are popular now are all about glitter, glamour, and edge. Think gold hair clips, crystal bedazzled bobby pins, statement headbands, and colorful hair scarves. The great thing about half up ponytails is that they’re so versatile, you’ll love how they look with any accessory.

Nothing feels more grown up than big, sexy hair. Take your half ponytail to the next level by adding lots of volume and get ready to turn heads. To achieve sky-high volume that will last all day long, all you’ll need is a fine-tooth comb and a medium hold hair spray.

For this look, you’ll want to begin by washing your hair with a volumizing shampoo to ensure lots of volume at the roots. Once you’ve blown out your locks, section off the hair at your crown and flip it over so it hangs in front of your face. Then, lightly spray the sectioned off hair with a medium hold hairspray and backcomb your locks to create volume at your roots. Once you’ve backcombed the entire section of hair, flip it back over and gently comb the top so it looks smooth. Then, gather the backcombed section of hair at the center of the back of your head, and secure it with a hair elastic. Set your look with a medium hold hairspray.

How to make half ponytail hairstyles


Adding texture to your ‘do is a great way to take your go-to childhood styles right into adulthood. If you’re looking for an on-trend style, consider crimping your hair before styling your half ponytail. In case you hadn’t heard, crimped hair has officially made its comeback and it’s better than ever. To put a modern spin on this ‘80s style, opt for a jumbo crimped style that you can create using just your flat iron.

Start at the back of your head, working with 2-inch sections of clean, dry hair. Spray each one with a heat protectant before clamping the base of the section with your flat iron. Once clamped, flip the flat iron down and hold it there for about 15 seconds. Then, move your flat iron down the section of hair, flip the flat iron up, and hold it in place. Continue twisting the flat iron up and down until you reach the bottom of the section. Once you’ve crimped your whole head, style your half ponytail and set your look with a flexible hold hair spray.

Ponytail hairstyle 1: the basic ponytail

Before getting into fancier styles for ponytail hair, we need to master the basics. This is the simplest of ponytail hairstyles. If you’ve never tied a ponytail before, hey, we all have to start somewhere. Here are the basics of how to tie a ponytail:

1. Comb your hair.

2. Put a hair tie around your wrist.

3. Gather your hair into a bunch at the back of your head, or wherever you want the ponytail to be. A low ponytail is easiest, but you can gather the hair higher up if you want a high ponytail, or even create a side ponytail by gathering it to one side.

4. While you’re holding your hair with your hair-tied hand, use your other hand to tug the hair tie off your wrist and over your hair.

5. Twist the hair tie to create a figure-8 loop: one half of the 8 should have your hair in it, and the other half should be empty. Pull your hair through the empty loop as well.

6. If it’s not secure enough, twist the loop you’ve just passed over your hair to create a third loop, and pull your hair through that, too.

7. Adjust the position of the hair tie to your taste. You can pull the ends of the ponytail apart to force the tie further towards your scalp or pull the tie back to make it sit further down the ponytail. If you want more volume around your ponytail, you can pull your hair out of it gently using your hands.

your a very cool mom i guess your kids like you to

super cute! im going to combine this with your beach waves tutorial to give it the springy/summer feel 😉

Hi I’m 12 and I was looking for a short hairstle that just barely reaches the shoulders. I couldn’t find any on here. Do u know one? I don’t hava a lot of time in the morning so it should be fast.

Where do you get a topsy-tail?

Hi I’m 11 and my mom and I came up with a little hairdo. You take a little piece of hair on either side and braid them and then bring them around to the back and make them look like one big braid in the back. Pin them like that and it should look like a half princess circlet.

Hello! I was wondering… where did you get the headband she is wearing in the picture? Thanks! Also do you know how to do the little buns they do in a lot of pageant photos they are like pigtails one low on either side of the head and then it is flipped up and poofed at the end but you cant see the rubberband at all! Here is a link.. several girls wear them at pageants but they arent wigs… thanks! pause it at :32 seconds and thats what they are! Thanks sooooo much!

Hello. 😉 Ahhh you always make such a nice hairstyles! I always try to make them on myself and on my daughter! 😉 I was just wondering if you could teach us how to make this braid, its gorgeous but i cant figure out very well how to do it, i guess its hard to make it on yourself, right?

I am not able to watch the video for some reason. I had to update my Adobe flashplayer to watch it, and did that, but still I can’t see the video. Is it just he top half of the hair that is pulled back? It looks so in the picture, but wasn’t for sure. If so, I know what I am doing. Thank you for your blog, as my daughters are always excited for me to do their hair. 🙂

I just wanted to say thanks for all the great ideas! Your hair blog is by far my fave and I love your ideas. Esp. the recent ones you posted. My dd loves the fancy do’s, but doesn’t like to sit and is very sensitive about pulling, so the easy, but pretty ones are winners with us. Any great ideas for thin hair? You dd’s hair is fabulous, but some of the styles look sub-par on my sweet dd’s thinner hair.

Summers are too hot to keep your hair open, especially while going out. Not only you will be sweating a lot, but, you will also end up damaging your hair.

  • Split the hair strand into three sub-sections and start weaving together to make a braid.
  • Cross the left hair strand over the right one and keep going until you reach halfway.
  • Using your hand, gently stretch out the braid to make it look fuller. Secure the end with a clear elastic band.
  • Keep it aside and now gather all your hair in the center. Backcomb it from the bottom to create volume.
  • Along with the braid, tie your hair into a ponytail and secure with an elastic band.
  • Take the elastic band off the braid now that it is tied in with the ponytail.
  • Lastly, grab a small piece of hair and wrap it around the hair tie. Pin it under your ponytail.

Hyuna’s Messy Look

Meet the ’s little sister: the messy half-pony, as seen on Hyuna. To get the look, use a flat iron to curl your hair and loosen the curls with your fingers, scrunching to add texture. Tie hair up into a half-pony and leave bangs loose. No need to smoothen out bumps—they’re part of the charm.

We’ve covered everything from fuller looking ponytails to elegant hair buns, but what’s a girl do when she’s can’t make up her mind whether to wear her hair up or down? It’s easy! Go for half-up hairstyles!

The hottest hairstyle trend today is not the classic up-do, or the favorite ponytail, but a combination of the two: half-up hairstyles! While the half-up is extremely popular right now, it’s never really gone out of style. It’s probably one of the most feminine ways to wear your hair. It’s the perfect style for nights out, work, and even on your wedding day!

The half-updo is a great hairstyle for a number of reasons! Not only is it incredibly effortless and easy to make, it’s the ultimate bad hair day style for second-day hair! It also helps keep your hair out of your face! Our newest hair accessory, Pony 2.O is perfect for any half-up style you want to wear.

How to make half ponytail hairstyles


Your hair type doesn’t matter when it comes to wearing half-up styles. Whether your hair is thick or fine, long or short, straight or curly, there’s absolutely no reason to not wear it half-up. The Pony 2.O is slimmer than the original Pony-O. Designed specifically for fine hair, it’s also PERFECT for half-up styles. Of course, for a fuller look, you can stick with the original Pony-O.

The Pony-O Difference

Our innovative patented design helps you create hairstyles that will stay gorgeous all day long. No ponytail crease at the end of the day like you get from elastics, and no breakage or damage at all!

When you feed your hair through the Pony-O and shape it, whatever is inside stays securely, even if it’s only a small section of hair. The difference between the Pony-O and elastic hair ties is this:

  • Your hair looks thicker and fuller. Perfect for half the hair.
  • Your hair isn’t constricted inside, so no breakage! Awesome.
  • Your hair isn’t ripped out or twisted around the Pony-O. Taking it out is easy and pain free!


The Pony-O is easy to use:

  1. Using your thumb and forefinger only, feed your hair through the Pony-O.
  2. Letting go of your ponytail, use both hands to hold the Pony-O close to your head. This helps to keep your ponytail secure.
  3. Use your thumbs and bend down each end of the Pony-O separately. DO NOT bend the Pony-O ONCE IN THE MIDDLE. It will not hold.

TIP: For a more secure hold, bend the ends a little more. If you pull on your ponytail to tighten it, that will open and loosen the Pony-O.

Check out these videos of some super cute and super easy hairstyles using Pony-O! And why not order yours here?

How to make half ponytail hairstyles

Marines have been given the approval to let their hair down — at least some of it — while they work out.

Women with medium-length hair are now allowed to wear a “half ponytail” hairstyle during physical training. The style, which pulls the top portion of the hair away from the face and into a ponytail while the rest of the hair remains down — is one of several new uniform-related changes the commandant signed off on this week.

“The section of hair pulled back into the half ponytail should be secured over the ‘crest of the head,'” according to a graphic depicting the new authorized look. “The half ponytail must lay flat, and hair may not stick straight out or at extreme angles from the head.”

Half ponytails are allowed only for female Marines with medium-length hair. The style is authorized during PT, including when the Marine Corps combat utility uniform is worn during physical training. Women with long hair will still need to put their hair up, in a regular ponytail or free-hanging braid.

Half ponytails won’t be allowed with any Marine Corps headgear, the message states. And if the combat utility uniform isn’t being worn for PT, it’s back to the regular hair regs for all women, according to the message.

Women have also been given the OK to wear silver earrings with their service uniforms. Female Marines were previously allowed to wear only gold earrings with that uniform.

“Small, polished, yellow gold or silver colored, ball, or round stud earrings (post, screw-on, or clip), not to exceed 6 millimeters (about 1/4 inch) in diameter, may be worn with the service, blue dress, and blue-white dress [uniforms],” the message states.

The changes follow a survey the Marine Corps Uniform Board conducted earlier this year. Officials declined to provide the results of that survey, but it did ask Marines to weigh in on these two approved changes.

The commandant also this week granted men the approval to use black umbrellas when it’s raining while they’re in their service or dress uniforms.

Alia’s half ponytail hairstyle certainly doesn’t skimp on the style quotient.

Alia Bhatt’s hairstyle is adorable as ever!

Alia Bhatt – Bollywood actress, animal activist and now, ponytail specialist. With her love for a good cheerleader-esque high ponytail always going strong, spotting Alia in a stylish new ponytail hairstyle is always a bonus. At a recent appearance in a ruffled black gown, Alia wore her hair in a half ponytail with curled layers. Many of us may have tried the half ponytail before but never have we looked this good wearing it. So here’s how to get Alia Bhatt’s cool girl half ponytail hairstyle easily.

Step 1 – Brush your hair out completely with a paddle brush like Kent’s Detangling and Setting Brush to remove any of those dreadful knots.

Step 2 – Apply serum like Toni & Guy’s Shine Gloss Serum through the lengths to get Alia’s shiny, smooth tresses and get rid of any frizz.

Step 3 – Divide your hair into two sections. Divide the top section a little above the ears from both sides. Part the top section in the centre and tie it into a ponytail at the back of the crown.

Step 4 – To get Alia’s stylishly curled layers, first keep your curling tong with a large barrel-like Corioliss’ Big Wave Curler to heat. This will ensure the curls are large and bouncy, not small and tight.

Step 5 – While the curler is heating, divide the lower layers of the hair into 2-inch sections throughout. Then starting from the hair ends, curl the section upwards until the ear, hold it in place for a few sections and gently remove the tong to get a full curl. Repeat until the complete lower section is curled and fabulous.

How to make half ponytail hairstyles

A common problem most of us with long hair face is deciding whether to tie our hair up or leave it down. We bring the perfect middle ground with a half bun hairstyle!

Every morning we stand in front of our mirrors, spending time holding our hair up and down, trying to figure out which way does it look better.

This hairstyle takes barely five minutes to achieve. And whether you like it messy or sleek tight, it is sure to win over hearts. Not to mention that it is perfect for any occasion – a simple picnic at the park, business meeting, or meeting your boyfriend’s family for the first time!

You might be wondering what goes into achieving this look. Does it require a straightener, some mousse, or maybe rollers? NO! All you need are some bobby pins and a hair tie! This half bun is perfect for people with thick hair who cannot leave their hair down in the sweltering heat. And it is godsent for people with thin hair who cannot tie their hair up because it looks flimsy and volumeless. Scroll down to learn how to tie your hair in a lovely half bun.

What You Need

  • A wide toothed comb: Everyone should invest in a wide toothed comb because it detangles your hair in the gentlest way possible and retains its volume. (As opposed to a fine toothed comb that sleeks your hair down.)

  • A hair elastic: Get one that matches your hair color to add a seamless finish to your hairdo.
  • A 1-inch curling iron: Because we all need some bouncy curls in our lives.
  • Bobby pins: Go for big bobby pins if your hair is thick and small ones if you have fine textured hair.
  • Light hold hairspray: If you want your half up bun to actually stay up through the day, you need to get yourself a bottle of a light hold hairspray ASAP.

How To Do A Perfect Half Bun Hairstyle?

Now that you’ve gathered all the necessary tools, let’s jump right in to perfecting your half bun!

  1. Detangle your hair with a wide toothed comb: Let’s start off with the most basic thing you need to do before starting any hairstyle.

1. Bob with half-ponytail

Romance, freedom, love of life: This hairstyle embodies all the things we inevitably associate with spring and summer. This is a bob (no matter the length) where the front section is combed back and tied into a ponytail. Either you use a transparent hair tie or (quite Dior-like) a bow made of velvet. It is important with the half ponytail that it is not too low, but rather tied in the upper third of the back of the head. The great thing is that you don’t have to style your hair elaborately for this hairstyle. She looks awesome with waves, curls, or straight hair. As a special twist, you can pull the front strands out of the half-tail and blow-dry them inwards with a round brush. Set with hairspray and you’re done. The hairstyle also looks particularly great when you wear it with curtain bangs!

Darshan says, “Ranveer Singh recently made waves in Cleveland at the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game with striking hair statements.” “Ranveer isn’t afraid to try out new looks, and he was pleased with the lookbook we created, whether it was his sky-high ponytail or the voluminous curls held back by a headband. There are figures of men with top buns in ancient Indian sculptures and art, and this was my inspiration for Ranveer’s NBA look. His style, as the NBA Brand Ambassador for India, complimented the energy of the event.”

Men are beginning to prefer ponytails in everyday life as a summer trend, according to Darshan, because it feels cool and unfussy. Stars such as Shah Rukh Khan can be seen with a ponytail even when wearing a formal suit, but in most cases, this is a casual style statement that is bohemian, casual, and convenient.
