The barbie ponytail is iconic for its straight ultra-high updo (usually on top of your crown) and is often styled by flipping the ends of your strands. This hairstyle is cute and fun but also gives off a sophisticated vibe due to its simple and sleek appearance. Perfect for any occasion!
Different variations of this hairstyle can be achieved by adding deep side bangs, a ribbon, a hairband, or by styling your edges. Ariana Grande is famous for this type of hairstyle (she’s actually been sporting this look for a while now!). Check out how she made it look vintage and classy by adding a ribbon:
How to Do a Barbie Ponytail
This hairstyle is easy to do and only takes a few minutes (perfect for when you’re running late!). Follow the instructions below:
Step 1: Brush and gather all your hair into a high ponytail (on top of the crown). You might need to use 2 elastics to make sure it’s secure and bundled.
Step 2: Make sure the front is sleek and no unruly hairs are coming out of the ponytail. If you have bangs, part them deeply to one side.
Step 3 (Optional): Grab a flat iron, straightener, or a curling wand and curl the ends outward.

If you’re not a fan of the ponytail but still want to sport the Barbie look, you can try to straighten your hair and only curl the ends outward. Here is a photo of Margot Robbie as the perfect example:
