Just because you're going to run around and get your sweat on at the soccer field doesn't mean you can't look cute while doing it. There's probably not much you can do about your uniform, but you can do something about your hair. Forget the messy pony; a variety of adorable hairstyles can leave you looking stylish and fine while kicking that ball around.
Part ponytail, part bun; this cute 'do combines the best of both worlds and leaves you looking foxy. Pull your hair back into a ponytail, then start to twist your hair into a bun. When you get three-quarters of the way done, let the rest of your hair hang loose. Secure your hair with a ponytail holder and voila -- you've got a sweet hairstyle that allows you to still kick some tush.
Deep Part Pony
Get a sophisticated pony by sporting a deep part. To achieve this hot look, apply about a quarter-sized dollop of straightening balm to towel-dried hair. Blow-dry your hair straight, then part your hair on your left side -- as deep as you would like -- and smooth it back into a ponytail on your right side. Secure your hair with an elastic, then rub some hair wax on your pony to tame any flyaways. This side-pony won't get in the way when you're heading the ball and will keep you looking cute.
To score this adorable yet edgy bun, pull your hair toward the back of your head. Twist your hair into a bun, then secure it with an elastic. Pull on the edges of the bun to create a pouffy look that is a bit more fun and carefree than the classic bun. Keep everything in place with some strong-hold hairspray and you should be good to go. Keep your bun off of the top of your head, so it won't hurt if you do a header during the game.
Get your hair out of your face while still looking lovely with a flirty ponytail. Slick your hair back into a ponytail and secure it with an elastic. Roll the bottom three inches of your pony into a large-barrel curling iron. Hold the barrel horizontally and roll upwards so that the curl flips up instead of under. Slip the barrel out after a few seconds and rub some styling lotion over your hairline to keep flyaways contained. If you really want to look fabulous, add a bit of pouf on the top of your head; you'll be the most stylish gal on the field.
