Mid-Back Of The Head, Center And Side Ponytails

Ultimately it's always best to position the base of your ponytail where it's most comfortable for you.

There are many locations along the head where a ponytail base can be located.   No rule exists against wearing a ponytail right at the hairline.

In fact, Suzanne Somers used to wear her blonde ponytail from Three's Company back from her hairline and to one side.

It became her trademark look even though it was due to her hair getting burned requiring her to wear her quirky pony.

Men often prefer to wear their ponytails low on the head near the nape of the neck.

A popular ponytail for those with long or thicker tresses is to position the back halfway between the nape of the neck at the bottom and the crown at the top.

These ponytails are called mid-back or center of the back of the head ponytail.

Pia Toscano shown above to the left, is the newly eliminated American Idol contestant.  She showcases a perfectly styled mid-back center pony for her turn singing a Tina Turner tune.

The beauty of this ponytail style is that it creates a well-balanced profile.  It is also well-balanced weight-wise for people who get headaches from wearing higher ponytails.

Because there is a lot of room for the hanging tail, it is a great way to showcase glosses tresses.  The base of the pony can be wrapped with a strand of hair from the tail or with a wide range of hair accessories.  If you wish, you can even slide a decorate comb at the top of the pony base for an elegant look.

Mid-back center of the head ponytails can be created on stick straight strands or on tresses with texture.  The ends of the pony can be curled or worn stick straight.

The beauty of the mid-back center ponytail is that it looks elegant with a touch of sass.

Daily Hair Tip
Hair at the nape of the neck often misbehaves because it is where finer baby hair grows. Harness baby locks w/ faux-jeweled claw clips or smooth on your favorite hair paste or wax to hold fragile strands in place.
