Double up.

If you’ve got relatively short hair that you wish could be twice as long without the wait (or the hair extensions), separate your hair into two sections, one on top and the other underneath. Put the top section in one ponytail, then do the bottom, securing each with a hair tie. Gently brush the two together to give the appearance of instantly longer hair.

Tie the knot.

Another easy idea for short hair: accenting your style with a small knot. Gather your hair into a ponytail, leaving a small piece from the left side and a small piece of the right side of your head out, then tie those at the base and secure them with bobby pins. Sophisticated and chic!

Go for a funky bubble ponytail.

If you have long hair and want something unique, try creating this bubbly look. It takes a little more skill to learn than others, but once you’ve got the technique down, you’ll be obsessed with it.

Add two bobby pins.

If you’ve got long or thick hair and find your ponytail drooping, stick two bobby pins under the base by the hair tie, pointing them upward. In a snap, your style looks taller and more voluminous.

Swap a hair tie for the real thing.

For a seamless look, wrap a thin section of hair around the base of your ponytail to conceal the elastic.

Add a braid.

If you want to kick it up another notch, don’t just wrap your ponytail with your own hair — braid that piece first. This style is surprisingly easy to accomplish and looks so impressive.

Curl your hair quickly.

Going section by section and clipping your hair up and down makes curling thick or long hair super time-consuming. Instead, put your hair into a ponytail, then wrap medium-sized sections around the barrel — and if your hair isn’t too thick, you can even just wrap it all around the barrel at once. Whether you decide to keep your pony in after you curl it or take it down to wear it curly, this trick can save you a lot of time.
