#1. The half-up, half-down do
Make a side part and secure both sides with bob pins. Incorporate a tiny braid on one side for extra polish.
#2. The side ponytail
Perfect for second-day hair, create a deep side part, then secure hair into a side pony. Twist and wrap one section around the rubber band.
#3. The braided bun
Make a ponytail and take it through a bun maker/hair doughnut. Create small braids through the length of the pony, and turn and wrap around the bun. Secure with pins.
#4. The fishtail braid
Got time? Visit cosmo.in and search for 'fishtail' for a step-by-step process. But a secret trick stylists implement is to use a clip-in fishtail braid!
#5. The milkmaid braid
Part hair down the middle and make two side braids. Join the two braids together at the nape to make a pony. Use a section of hair to cover the elastic.
#6. The multi braid
Make a side part and take a two-inch section on one side to make a braid. Take this braided section and weave it through the rest of your hair.
#7. The quiff pony
Tease the front section of hair using a tailcomb, and secure using pins. Tie the rest of the hair into a pony and smoothen the sides with hairspray.
