Honestly, cornrow ponytail hairstyles are very underrated.

Ladies seem to prefer the plain push back style or the usual braids more. Maybe it's due to the fact that high ponytails in most cases make people look way younger. The truth of the matter is, a high cornrow ponytail style doesn't have to be boring, you can go for edgy styles with a twist to look different.

Here are some styles to try.

1. Thin high cornrow ponytail style.
