Cute Ponytails for Busy Moms

Want a long, full ponytail but don’t quite have the length for it? This two-ponytail hack will save the day! Place one ponytail near the top of the head and another near the bottom, fluff them up, and you’re good to go.

If you’re rocking long, thick hair this big ponytail is just what you need! Add a little curl for texture, tease it a little, pull it up, and POW!

You know those side ponytails you loved as a kid? For the most part, we’ve outgrown them, right? Think again. Here’s a grown-up version that looks soft and romantic.

Ponytails and moms just go together. Here are some really cute ponytails that every mom will love.

This straight and tight ponytail will actually give you a sleeker look. Blow dry with a flat brush, and run a straightener over your hair once it’s up in the ponytail.

This polished low ponytail is a great look for the office. Pull most of the hair back into a low ponytail, leaving a section free on each side. Wrap the sections around the ponytail for a pretty wrapped look.

Here’s a similar twist-over ponytail for naturally curly hair.

Combine a loose braid with a low ponytail for a look that works for a day with the kids or at the office.

Create this lovely piece-y ponytail by adding texture to the hair, dividing it into three sections, and twisting them to form a low ponytail.

Go for the vintage look with this super stylish retro ponytail. Watch the quick video tutorial to find out how to do it.

Try a french braid and ponytail combo for a fun change of pace.

The knot ponytail is quick and easy and works great for straight or curly hair.

Get volume in your pony by teasing at the crown before pulling it up.

For really long hair, you can’t go wrong with a sleek ponytail for a night out.

This easy up-do is really just a tucked ponytail. Make a loose ponytail at the nape of the neck and tuck the loose end of your ponytail into the gap under your rubber band. Use pins to secure your hair. I have really thick, long hair, but this style will work for all different textures and lengths.

I never and mean NEVER bother doing my hair. So I had to take a pic to document this moment.
