On the days that you leave your daughter's hair down, odds are she will return from school with at least one unidentified substance stuck on the ends and encrusted in various strands. We love our little girls' long locks, but sometimes leaving them down isn't all that practical. The ponytail is a tried and tested updo that keeps hair off the face and food safely on the plate where it belongs. Try spicing up the basic pony by adding some fun flair to the style. We've rounded up nine tutorials for some of the most creative, quick, and easy ponytails that you both will love!
