All About Frontal Ponytails and How to Style Them

The secret to achieving a sleek pony without altering your natural hair.

Do you love the sophisticated look of sleek ponytails? However, do you dislike the process of having to sleek down and tamper with your natural hair? Or perhaps you don’t enjoy the process of having to take apart the hairstyle and the possible effects it may leave on your natural hair. Whatever your preference may be, frontal ponytails are here to save the day!

Frontal ponytails are the perfect way to wear sleek ponytails without having to tamper with your natural hair. You may have heard of frontal/lace front wigs, now imagine if it was in ponytail format. A frontal ponytail is essentially installed the same way a frontal/lace front wig would be installed. Adding on to that, frontal ponytails can be worn in a large variety of cute and trendy hairstyles!

Want to learn about the different ways you can wear this hairstyle? Check out our guide below. 

1. Classic-Chic Frontal Ponytail

One of the trendiest ponytail styles of today is the “classic-chic” look which typically involves hair being sleeked and swooped down the forehead in a side bang formation on one side and with a parting on the opposite side. The look is often worn with the bang and ponytail looking shiny. To help achieve this shiny look on the frontal hair, use a mousse such as For Every Hair Type Smooth & Style Mousse when styling the look. 

2. Slicked-Back Frontal Ponytail

If the side-part/bang is not really your forte, then you can try the slick back frontal ponytail style. In this ponytail frontal style, there is no visible parting. However, to keep the natural-looking effect of the look, intricate styling is usually done to the edges of the hair. 

3. Half Up, Half Down Pony

Get dressy with a half up half down frontal ponytail. For an, even more, dressed up look curl the hair + the pony. Top it all off with a hairspray such as Bed Head by TIGI Masterpiece Shine Hair Spray for a long-lasting all-day hold. 

4. Braided Back Frontal

Once you’ve had your frontal ponytail in for a few days, elongate the time frame of the style by braiding it up! Top off the look with SheaMoisture’s Wig & Weave Tea Tree & Borage Seed Oil Shine Spray to keep the look looking fresh and shiny. 

5. Accessorized Frontal Ponytail

Another great way to elongate the timeline of the ponytail is to wear it with a scarf holding down the frontal. Not only does it make a great fashion accessory, but it is a low-maintenance way of wearing the style. No worries about styling your pony or adding extra hair glue in the back, let your scarf do the talking.
