3 Easy-to-Do Scrunchie Ponytails for Long Hair

Tired of the same high or low ponytail for your long hair? We’ve got you covered. Below you’ll find two beginners and one mid-level long hair scrunchie ponytails that add pops of color, texture, and fun to your look.

One is perfect for sports and being active, while another will look fabulous worn on a first date or when you need “me time” after a long day.  The last is on-trend for a night out with your friends, to make a statement at school, or to add some fun to an everyday work look.

Half-up Half-down Ponytail

Looking for a comfy look that works for date night, class and work, or relaxing at home? This is for you.

It holds comfy and looks great so it works with your look from morning to night, and holds without pulling so you can have some “me time” without needing to undo your hair.

You will need:

To create this look:

  1. Smooth out and untangle any knots with the hairbrush.
  2. Separate your hair into a top and bottom section around eye height.
  3. Pull the top section back and secure it with the scrunchie into a high ponytail.
    1. If you have fine or thin hair and scrunchies slip, secure your hair with a hair tie first, then place the scrunchie over it.
    2. You can also use a bobby pin to secure the scrunchie to the ponytail.
  4. Style the lower section of your hair to your liking.

French Braided High Ponytail

This looks is perfect for active lifestyles. The French braid has texture and holds tight, while the high ponytail keeps your hair off your face so you can focus on running, pilates, or sports. It does take a little bit of effort to get even braids, especially if you’re styling it on yourself, so this is more of a medium level hairstyle than a beginner hairstyle.

The added benefit of this look is that the scrunchie does not secure the ponytail, the hair tie does. This means you can keep the ponytail in and wear the scrunchie as a bracelet when you need to take it out, then easily slide it back on by feeding the braid through it.

You will need:

  • Two hair ties (one for a ponytail and one for capping the braid.
  • A scrunchie
  • A hair brush

To create this look:

  1. Smooth out your hair with the hair brush.
  2. Pull your hair back to the crown of your head and secure it into a high ponytail with a hair tie.
  3. Split the ponytail into three sections and begin French braiding it.
  4. Cross the right section over the middle, then the left over the middle, and repeat until you reach the bottom of the ponytail.
  5. Add the small or tiny hair tie to the bottom of the ponytail to secure the braid.
  6. Slide the scrunchie up to the top of the ponytail to complete the look.

Bubble Braid Ponytail

Everyone loves the classic bubble braid. It’s easy to do, is full of texture and pops of color, and works for almost every situation. When you want to elevate this style, add scrunchies to the mix.

You can alternate large and small scrunchies for added depth, rotate colors to match your color palette, and switch between scrunchies and hair ties, or customize it however you’d like.

You will need:

  • Scrunchies for each bubble and the top of the ponytail
  • A hair brush
  • Hair ties or bobby pins if scrunchies normally slip

To create this look:

  1. Remove any tangles or knots with the hairbrush.
  2. Gather your hair at the crown of your head, or wherever you want the bubble braid to begin.
    1. Secure the top with a scrunchie and bobby pin if scrunchies normally slip, or a hair tie and place the scrunchie over it.
  3. About 2 inches below, or however large you want the bubble, add the next scrunchie or hair tie.
    1. If you use scrunchies and they slip, use a bobby pin or hair tie to secure it at the bottom of each bubble.
  4. Now repeat until you get to the bottom of the ponytail and secure the base with a tiny scrunchie or hair tie if you’d like.
  5. The last step is to tease the bubbles by gently pulling the sections in between the scrunchies and hair ties to the desired shape and size.
