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 :-)
