There are very few things that I can think of that are cuter than bows, so why not add them to your summer ponytail? These super cute accessories affordable, come in every colour under the rainbow and are even DIY-able! Tie a ribbon around your pony for the classic look or pop a barrette bow right above it.

There are so many adorable ways to incorporate a french or regular braid into your hairstyle before the hair gets swept up into a ponytail. We know this to be true just based on the fact that there are entire Pinterest boards dedicated to ponytails and braids!
