The higher, the better!
The high ponytail hairstyle is one of the classic ‘dos that never really go out of style. It was cool in the ’90s and it’s still definitely stylish and trendy now; just ask Ariana Grande! The positioning of your ponytail easily transforms your vibe, and placing it high up at the crown of your head makes a regular pony more fun and exciting and takes your style up a notch. You can really wear it anywhere, but it’s also a great pick for parties and nights out because aside from keeping hair off of the nape of your neck (which is not very comfortable especially when you start to sweat after a lot of dancing and jumping), it also adds zing to your look and a sexy, bouncy effect when you move around.
While the high ponytail is quite simple, we’ve got some quick tips that would help you master and perfect this look. Check out the steps below and learn how to high ponytail, the ATH way!

Secure with a hair tie
