To do a ponytail with bangs:

  1. Brush your hair so that it is untangled and easy to comb your fingers through.
  2. Keep your bangs free and pull your hair backwards from the sides.
    1. If you have long hair, separate your hair into top and bottom sections by using a hair clip to hold the top.
    2. Next collect the bottom portion and pull it into a tight ponytail and secure it where you want the base to be. This helps keep the ponytail looking sleek on the lower half.
  3. Now take all your hair and secure it with a hair tie at the base of where you want your ponytail to be (high, middle or on the side).
    1. If you are following the long hair steps, combine the lower ponytail with the higher one on this step.  
  4. Last, style your bangs to your desired look.

And there’s a ponytail with bangs for just about everyone.  Here’s a few versions you may want to try.

Curtain bang ponytails (also known as split bangs) help you feel like you’re taking center stage.  As the name implies, the bangs resemble curtains and split to help enhance features like your cheekbones and eyes.  This look is certainly “showstopping!”  

Side bang ponytails are another great option regardless of the shape of your face or hairline.  One of their most common uses is to hide fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes, but they also help to frame round faces and give them more length and definition.  This look is also fun to style, and wear, making the side bang ponytail perfect if you’re tired of the same-old, same-old thing.

If you want to have a lot of fun with a ponytail and bangs, go for the infamous pigtails with bangs look.  It’s a double ponytail where the base is drawn from the sides, held up high, and the ponytails are held like pigtails.  The bangs are typically flat and split from the sides, or long and curled with an iron.  There’s a famous comic strip “villain” that made this style no “joke” and it is perfect for wearing to parties, music festivals, and a night out.  

Wearing a ponytail with bangs is more than just a hairstyle, it's a way to get the look that makes you feel comfortable and confident.
