I think that looks really pretty. Plus, keep in mind that when you’re all dolled up, it will look elegant like you envisioned and not 80s side ponytail at all.

Here’s what I’m using as inspiration for mine:

It needs to be gathered at a lower point – below your earlobe instead of above your ear.

then you won’t get that “side ponytail” feel

maybe if you added a clip like this :

or had her fasten it in a different way? right now i see what you mean about the ponytail because where it’s fastened is very narrow. maybe if that were wider it would be more what you were looking for.

I am going for a side-swept look myself. Here are the pics from my trial- I loved how she tucked the back around.

I think it needs to be a little less ‘gathered’ to get the effect you’re looking for. Your picture almost looks like it has an invisible ponytail holder in there, there’s one ‘point’ the hair is gathered around… and some of the other ideas here don’t have it gathered nearly so tight.

Especially the hair at the nape of your neck… it should go to the side, not up, if you don’t want it to look like a ponytail.

I think the side hair look is gorgeous is executed to not look like a side pony.

If you go to my recaps, my sisters had some hair which was down and to the side.

 I think it needs to just be gathered a bit lower and it will look great.

i think it would look great if you have it less gathered and lowered down too for the back view
