The pony tail is a classic hairstyle that is the default one for fashionistas who are suffering from bad hair days. The low pony is one of the hottest hair trends, and you too can rock this simple-yet-savvy style. Here are three easy ways to make this trend your own.
This mussed-up look is super easy to put together. So easy, in fact, that you can add it to your list of go-to styles for those rushed or just plain lazy mornings.
Steps: Apply a texturizing powder from your roots to the ends of your hair, scrunching as you go. Pull your hair back into a low pony, securing the hair with an elastic band at the nape of the neck. Loosen and roughen up the style by tugging at the hair just below the crown. Wrap the base of the pony with hair from the bottom of the tail. Lightly tease the pony at the base. For extra texture, tease the entire section of hair.
This sleek n’ chic style is great for dry and wet locks. The beauty of this look is that it works with something as casual as a T-shirt and jeans or as snazzy as a pantsuit. And all that is required is a little gel.
Steps: Brush out your hair so it is soft and easy to handle. Using a flat iron, straighten the hair. Spray water on the top of your head with a spray bottle so the hair is damp. Pour a dime-sized amount of gel into your palm and spread the product on both your hands and run them gently through the top of the hair. Pull the hair back into a slick, tight ponytail. Take a piece of hair from the bottom of the pony and wrap it around the base to cover the elastic band. Run a flat iron through the pony to ensure it is straight and free of any curl or bumps.
Sometimes, plain old ponytails need a little upgrade. A pretty boho braid adds the perfect touch.
Steps: Pull your hair back into a low pony, securing the style at the nape of the neck with an elastic band. Braid the pony into a regular braid or fishtail braid and secure the end with elastic. Tug gently at the braid to loosen it. Then spray it with a flexible hold setting spray to avoid any flyaways.
