Ponytails are a simple style when you don’t have time to wrestle with your hair, but that doesn’t mean they have to be boring. 1. First, add a texturizing product to your hair to give it a little grip. 2. Next, divide your hair in half and tie it in a double knot. 3. Secure the knotted ponytail with an elastic band and a couple of hair pins. 4. To keep the ponytail in place, tease the ends.
