Want to make a hair statement in a simple, do-it-yourself, casual way? The side ponytail is the way to go. We know this look is a fav of Bravo’s Andy Cohen but it’s one of the looks we love too and this slick style is even easier to create than a messy up-do.
To create the simplest of side ponytails all you need is a hair-tie and something to smooth your edges down, but to give your pony just a little more ooomph, try these ideas:
Give your face some fringe
Take a couple inches from the front of one or both sides of your face and create soft curls, waves, or flips using rollers, a flat iron or curling iron. This just adds a little dimension to the look and might be a more comfy style for you if you don’t like having all of your hair off your face.
