You can do other variations with your ponytail look as well. Perhaps if you do not want it at the back you can have your ponytail to the side. This way what you need to do is turn your head to the side to gather all your hair at this time.
If you have long hair now, it may be fun to try something short and funky, to mix things up some, and have fun with celebrity hairstyles. If you really like the length your hair is now, or it is already short, play with the color. So many fun celebrity hairstyles can be achieved by changing the color. Highlights are another idea that can produce a funky, different style.
