17 Next-Level Ponytail Hairstyles You Need For Prom

If you’re having a bad hair day and you have long hair, you probably throw your hair up in a ponytail and hope for the best, right? As much as we would sometimes like to, we cannot wear hats all the time. A ponytail is also the hairstyle that saves our faces on hot, sweaty summer days and the hairstyle we turn to when we have gym class. But, it can also be a great option for prom.

Don’t write ponytails off as being basic or boring. There are countless ways to style a ponytail and a number of them can make the usual buns or chignons seem boring. Want some ideas? Scroll down to see fun ponytail hairstyles that would look gorgeous at prom.

Look at that flow.


3. High, Long, Sleek Ponytail

Look at that tail. If your ponytail isn’t quite this long, you can always get some help with extensions. Or, rock it no matter the length.


4. Undone Ponytail

Even though her hair is pulled up, it’s not severe or heavily shellacked.


5. Twisted Ponytail

Even if you don’t have ombre hair, this look will still slay.


6. Swirling Ponytail

It’s not just about the tail.


7. Braided Ponytail

For those who cannot decide between a braid and a ponytail.


8. Ponytail Decorated With Flowers
