Bollywood Approved Ponytails That Are Anything But Basic

By  | 

Gone are the days when ponytails were only reserved for bad hair days and the gym. It is time to give this functional hairstyle a glamorous makeover. Everyone from Deepika Padukone to Priyanka Chopra has been rocking a super chic version of this hairdo at promotional events and on the red carpet.

Whether it is a textured ponytail or a retro one, it is time to get on board with this trend. Keep scrolling for a round-up of the best celebrity ponytails, that will help you elevate this basic schoolgirl hairstyle into an A-list look.



Shraddha Kapoor and Deepika Padukone’s voluminous ponytail is great for those blessed with length and volume. The best way to add bounce to your ponytail is to take a few strands and wrap it around the ponytail as Shraddha did in this look.

Bigger is better when it comes to ponytails. Disha Patani effortlessly wore her natural hair texture in a half ponytail.

Jacquline Fernandez adorned her high ponytail with cool and quirky hair piercings.

Jacqueline, Sonakshi and Deepika brought a hit of the 60s with their super high Ariana Grande-inspired ponytail. The key to nailing this look is to place the pony right on top of your head and, bring your luscious locks forward to sit on your shoulders.

Add an extra (yet easy) element to your look with french braids that flow into a ponytail!

Isabelle elevated the basic ponytail with pears and stars.

Girls with short and limp hair, take a cue from Alia Bhatt. A little teasing around the crown area and texturising spray for the ponytail will go a long, long way.

PeeCee likes to glam her ponytail, by leaving a few curled strands left loose, to frame her face. This is our new go-to wedding guest hairdo!

The sleek low ponytail has gone onto to become Deepika’s signature look. It looks chic, keeps her hair out of her face, and lets her beautiful features stand out.
