7. MULTI-TAIL IT

For a cool and modern twist, band your ponytail with multiple elastic bands down the length of your hair.

 

8. TWIST IT

Who says twists are only for updos? A bit cooler than a regular braid, tight twists are perfect for a shiny and sleek look. 

 

9. PLAY WITH TEXTURE

If your hair is curly, try slicking back your curls into a big giant puff. If you have straighter hair, add a crimp or curl.
