Try wrapping a piece of hair around the elastic band, tease the hair on the crown of your head to give a little more “oomph” or use a small jewel, flower or bauble to dress up the side of the ponytail.
Braids- Whether it’s a long braid down your back or a small braid across the crown of your head, this easy and popular hair trend can add an interesting detail to your formal attire. Braiding is easy and quick to do and can add a bit of whimsy to an otherwise sophisticated look.
Side bun- Is a regular bun too boring for you? Move it to the side of your head and see what you think! Your look can’t get any more elegant than completing it with a sexy side bun. The trick to getting a look more “Latin lover” than librarian is to not pull the hair on the crown of your head too tight and to allow a few pieces of hair to frame your face.
