Jennifer Aniston is wearing her hair in a very chic ponytail hairstyle while attending the premiere of “He’s Just Not That into You”.
I love this hairstyle because it has a very chic look to it which pairs well with Jennifer Aniston’s entire look. Ponytail hairstyles are a popular celebrity hairstyle these days because of the versatility and how its such a easy to do hairstyle.
If you have straight or wavy hair, one way to update the basic ponytail is to add some sexy waves. Use a light mousse or gel all over you hair and curl a few face framing pieces. Tie your hair in low pony tail, then take small half inch sections and use the curling iron to create slight waves in your mane.
Still on the same wavelength as the wavy low ponytail, the messy bun, is another variation on the same theme. The trick about the messy bun is to make sure that it blends well with the rest of your head. Make sure that you don’t have a bump just sticking out of your head, and use pins in strategic locations. Once you secure the low pony tail and create the waves, twist and use the elastic to create the bun. Take strategic pieces out of the bun and pin them to your head to create a fuller looking bun.
Don’t think the perfect ponytail is only for long haired gals, your medium length locks have the benefits of more funky styles. Layers give you the benefit is creating styles with face framing pieces. One ponytail style to try is the high sleek ponytail. Straighten your hair and tie at the middle of the back of your head, and use hairspray to ensure that the ends are pointing down perfectly straight. Another great style for medium hair length with layers is the side braid. Create a short braid at the nape of your neck and finish at the front. Take out some face framing pieces and the look is complete!
While most people with short hair, can’t pull of the typical pony tail, there are ways to get similar effects. One idea to try is pompadour volume. Spritz and tease a section of your hair just behind where your bangs or hair begins, then fix your bangs back over the teased hair. Secure the hair with pins at the crown of the head, and create a low pony tail for the rest of your hair. This vamped up rocker style is another variation that gives the standard ponytail added excitement.
