Choose a Put-Together Ponytail
“If you're having a bad hair day, a ponytail is an easy solution. But, you need to choose the right ponytail if you want to look put-together. A lot of women like to wrap an elastic band low or near the bottom of their ponytails, which looks sloppy and not flattering. Whether it's a high, medium, or low ponytail, too much slack in the back isn't good for anyone. When pulling your hair into a high pony, sweep it up — back and away from your face — and secure it in place with an elastic band around your hair, slightly back from your crown, or even a little lower toward the back of the head. This creates a youthful and dramatic appearance.” You can even plait it to tame your tresses, just like Blake Lively in this photo.
