If your hair is dry and you have not conditioned it then you are running the risk for splitting the ends. So to begin with, make sure that you shampoo well and use a conditioner unless of course your hair is oily. Towel dry it as there is no need to blow_dry your hair for the ponytail look. You might want to add a little bit of gel to give it a nice shiny look and to help keep those flyaway hairs under control.
Matching The Face Cutting: The hairstyle that you choose must match the face cutting or in other words shape of your face (such as pointed face, broad face, circular face etc.) You might have noticed a lot of people whose hairstyle does not match their face at all. When a person meets such a person, the first thing which comes into mind is that what weird hairstyle are they keeping? So, to avoid such situations, you must research properly and choose a good hairstyle that matches well with the shape of your face.
