Ponytail Hairstyles for All Hair Lengths
For Short Hair
With this length, it’s difficult to fit every last hair into an elastic—but this slightly punk look turns that into a virtue.
“Little pieces sticking out give it a playful edge,” says Moiz Alladina, a hairstylist in New York City who created all the
ponytails in this story.
To do: Blow-dry hair straight, mist with setting spray to give the style hold, slide in an elastic, then work a dab of gel (such as Nexxus Exxtra Gel, $11, drugstore.com) through the ends of the ponytail for texture. For a bit more polish, blow out the loose bits in front and sweep them to the side. Spray in place.
