Trying on a trend: Pony tails

Who would have thought that the humble pony tail would take the runway and the glitterati by storm? I do admit ponytails can never be a passing trend this is an evergreen hairstyle that comes in different avatars each year. With sports luxe being a major trend how can the effortless pony tail hairstyle be left behind? From DKNY to Victoria Beckham, from celebrities like Popy Delevinge to Scarlett Johansson  everyone will show you that the pony tail is no longer just for gym. Here’s my take on the trend.

Look 1– Sleek, low pony tail:

After straightening my wavy hair, I have simply taken it and tied it with an elastic. I have taken few strands from front to soften my look. For loose ends, I have used two bobby pins on the back. This one is definitely a hairstyle that will take you less than five minutes.

Look 2–Curly side low pony

After defining my curls, following the steps mentioned here. I have simply taken my hair from the left side (leaving a few in front of the left ear) and taken it to the opposite side, I have simply tied all my hair in an elastic and have tucked the left-out hair on the other side in twists. Another 5 minute hairstyle; the only thing to remember when dealing with curly hair is to appreciate and respect the sanctity of your natural curls rather than fiddling with it too much.  This would be my go-to hairstyle for a date night as it is messy and slightly whimsical.

Look 3–Curly high pony

Once again after defining my curls, I have taken all my hair using my fingers and tucked it in an elastic. Taking my pony just below the crown and slightly towards the side. For volume, I have simply puffed the hair on crown using my fingers.

My verdict for this trend: It is easy, fast to pull, looks good on everyone and can be interpreted in thousand ways. What’s not to love? 😉

      Hey first off extremely sorry for not replying earlier. I have been completely knackered since my last post. To answer your question, I don’t use a curler (cannot figure them out at all :P) after shampooing and conditioning my hair with curl control products and applying a wee bit of curl definition cream like Wella’s I simply dry my hair with a diffuser. Hope this helps 🙂
