27 Ways to Turn Your Basic-Ass Ponytail Into a Legit Look

As much as I love a ponytail, I'll be the first to admit that it's kindaaa a cop-out hairstyle. Like, sure, they're perfect for running errands or "going to the gym" (aka running errands in leggings), but taking the time to whip up a ponytail hairstyle that actually looks put together is a struggle. So in the spirit of switching up one of my boring, blah go-tos, I combed through Instagram to find the prettiest (but easiest) ponytail ideas of all time. With cute '90s-inspired looks and loose and easy loose, low options, I found something for pretty much everyone, ahead. Trust: You'll never look at ponytails the same way once you've seen this lineup.
