15 ways to dress up your ponytail for a party
Braid It like Whitney Port
A loose braid will add a dressy touch to any casual holiday look.
Wear it low
Pull hair into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck. Add in smoothing cream to keep it neat.
Add an extension like AnnaLynne McCord
This one’s for short-haired girls: Clip in an extension. Instant drama!
Do a deep side part
The key to nailing this look? Do it on dry hair. Section your part 2 inches from your ear. Spritz in some dry shampoo or texturizer for hold.
Wrap the base like Jessica Alba
Who likes to see those ponytail holders anyway? Take a section from the pony and wrap it around, then pin.
Wear it to the side like Kristin Stewart
How hot is this look? Gather hair in a low side ponytail. Rough it up with some hairspray, and tease the top if you want a little extra volume.
If you have limp strands (or just want some extra va-voom), pump up your ponytail with a little teasing.
