Bag thrown down, bra tossed, hair swept carelessly back into a pony. Sound familiar? Am I talking to anyone else’s favourite night time ritual?
From your ‘fitspo’ style finisher, to the perfect off duty “do” and your fool proof, never-fail cover up for the inevitable bad hair day, the ponytail has long been our ‘go to’ hair fix for those style moments that require a look that is not only effortless but dare I say it, practical.
Not unlike our wardrobe staples of denim, white tees and button through shirts, the ponytail is a ‘mainstay’; timeless, effortless and 100% reliable season after season after season.
But it seems that Summer’s new season might just have another plan for our ever reliable, low maintenance friend, and it’s about to take our cool classic up a notch or two in the style stakes. Last season we saw the top knot elevated, but this season, along with the temperature the ponytail is on the rise; from gym junkie to red carpet ready, the pony tail is guaranteed to elevate your style and beat the summer heat! Tousled, twisted, swept and slicked back across various highs and lows, the ponytail is ready to kick humidity to the curb with style and sophistication.
From twisted ponytails at JW Anderson, sleek and braided, the epitome of chic at Celine; slicked, smooth and sideways, pay close attention to the detail and take your style cues from the SS16 runways to stay ahead of the beauty game.
Whether you wrap it at the base with a strand of hair, tie it with luxurious fabrics to channel Chanel or decide to link your look together with jewels inspired by Dior, there is no question that this season’s ponytail is modern, fresh, and perfectly poised and polished.
It’s nothing less than chic xo
