This textured ponytail is sure to set you apart—it's a look that's as unique as it is easy to create. We're getting some major Disney vibes from this one, too (Princess Jasmine, anyone?). Who can turn their nose up at a hairstyle fit for a princess?

Confession: Our ponytails often look messy, but definitely not in this super cool, chic way. This style looks effortless and awesome. You can create texture with hair products and avoid styling tools altogether if you're in a hurry.

The sixties were an interesting decade for a lot of reasons—fashion and hairstyles among them. This style is sixties-inspired and simple, and it doesn't require the time commitment some other decade-inspired hairstyles would.
