Adding a ribbon or headband around your head is probably the simplest way to dress up a ponytail. The great thing about this styling technique is that you can pull your hair back into a high, medium, or a low ponytail and still have room for a pretty headband. If you use a ribbon, just be sure to secure it with a few bobby pins so that it holds throughout the day. For added interest, part your hair on the side.
