Slicked-Back Ponytail Style Ideas

3 Fresh Ways to Wear a Slicked-Back Ponytail

Textured, mussed-up ponytails have taken a back seat to slicker styles recently, but that doesn't mean your updo has to be boring. As Bella Heathcote, Kate Bosworth, and Whitney Port have proudly displayed, there are a handful of gorgeous ways to style your ponytail while keeping it off your face:

  1. Bella went for a liquid-slicked version, pulling her hair back completely without a part. Her low-volume style allowed her flirty winged liner ample room to shine.
  2. Kate Bosworth added some oomph to her updo by brushing the sides back but teasing her crown. A bright pink lipstick color gave some balance — and a serious pop of color — to her amplified ponytail.
  3. Whitney opted for a low ponytail with a center-split part that drew attention to her subtle smoky eye and dewy complexion.

However you decided to style your tightly pulled-back hairstyle, you'll need some hair spray to keep it put; reach for something lightweight, like Frederic Fekkai Advanced Sheer Hold Hairspray ($25).
