  • Twist each section loose enough so the length can reach the right side of your head

  • Hide the pins behind your right ear with curls or a glam hair clip if the party is really fancy
  • Use hairspray and styling products to keep the hairstyle voluminous

We usually associate ponytails with gyms and errands running, but some celebrities managed to give the ponytail a refreshed look turning it into a statement of glam and sophisticated simplicity. The super-sectioned glam ponytail works amazingly if you have really long, long and medium hair.

  • Make a ponytail and place it as high or low as you fancy
  • Use a shiny thread in gold or silver to separate the ponytail into equal sections, obtaining a rope-like effect.
  • You can also use colored elastic bands for a cool effect if the party is more casual than formal/glamorous.
