40 Super-Simple Messy Ponytail Hairstyles

Pull all your hair back and up, tie it together with a hair band and walk out of the door, ready to take on a new day! That’s really all it takes to get a messy ponytail right. This, in turn, partly explains the immense popularity of this simple look—it’s so easy to achieve. The other component to its enduring fame is just how versatile it is.

#30: Simple Blonde Pony with a Bouffant

This is the kind of look that will beautifully highlight an undercut or darker hair at the nape. It’s easy enough to achieve: part your bangs down the middle and backcomb the crown section for a big bouffant. Note that this model has a layered haircut that can sometimes be difficult to style—but that’s not the case here. Tie the hair into a low ponytail and wrap its base with a strand taken out from the pony itself.
