It raises hair up off the face, lifting cheekbones to create an elongated, polished look. Typically, the choice is between high or low. Low ponytails are usually more sophisticated, and perhaps most appropriate for a daytime look; high ponies have more drama, making them perfect for a nighttime ‘do. If you are bored with the standards, a textured pony is a more creative look ––an easy, playful and feminine way to keep things interesting. Click through style notes for tips on making textured ponies that you can own…
