Music festival season is upon us, as are picnics, barbecues, and basically every sort of casual, carefree event that calls for off-the-face hairstyles. While ponytails are a go-to look for these types of occasions, for a touch of flare, why not try a ponytail cuff? Whereas '80s-style scrunchies were floppy and playful, today's ponytail accessories are more structured and stylish — and as luck would have it, mesh perfectly with warmer-weather ensembles.
To get the look, try Free People's Cutout Ponytail Cuff ($18) in coral or turquoise, or the texturized metal Stingray Ponytail Cuff ($18). And for something a tad more traditional, Asos's Gold Corrugated Hinged Ponytailer ($18) is the way to go.
