Low ponytails have always been a fashionista favourite - but this season, the runway presented new and interesting ways of styling the humble low pony. From unique accessories to experimental placement, here's four new ways to giddy up!
Loose, Smooth and Ribbon-Tied
Ribbon-tied ponytails aren't just for school girls – so long as you style it with just the right touch! On the runway this season we saw long and luxe black ribbons casually tied around the base of a low pony. The reason the look doesn't come off as juvenile is because of the immaculate styling of the pony – the locks are ultra-smoothed and precisely centre parted, before being gathered at the nape into a loose low pony. This immaculate styling then allows the ribbon detail to sing.
Retro Wave Details
Taking its cue from the popular finger waved up-do hairstyles of the 1920s and 1930s, this incarnation of the low pony mixes the old with the new. The addition of the retro finger wave detail along the side of the head adds an unexpected element to an otherwise simple low ponytail. To prevent the overall style from becoming too costume-y, the designer cleverly teamed this hairstyle with a modern outfit design.
Wet Look Slick
Wet look hairstyles have been a hit in recent seasons and the trend does not appear to be letting up anytime soon! The beauty of adding a wet look finish to any hairstyle is it instantly elevates even the most basic looks. To recreate the style, simply scrape the hair back into a low pony and then go to town with wet look finish products, like .
Bit On The Side
Experimenting with placement brings a fresh new perspective to any hairstyle – including the low ponytail. Take note of the above runway look; not only was the base of the pony placed off-centre, but so too was the side swept front fringe section. The adjustment is only subtle, but the result is a striking and quirky finish. The takeaway message? Don't be afraid to have a little fun with your low ponytail creation!
