4 Ways to Break Out of Ponytail Groundhog Day

By Andrea Zanetich

Ponytail Day, AGAIN?!”

78% of us say we wear a ‘uniform’ of sorts every day, and that standard go-to combo is most often topped off with a ponytail.

But it’s easier than you’d think to change up the same old ponytail that you’ve been swishing, and turn it into something special, with minimal time and effort.

Here, 3 Australian bloggers share their quick, easy, ponytail tips.


It’s fast, it’s polished, and it looks like you’ve gone to loads of effort.

  • Nice, it reminds me how much variety my ponytails had when I was younger, I must start experimenting again! Another one is twisting each side in on itself and securing at the back, very chic 🙂
