BEHOLD, THE 1-MINUTE HAIRSTYLE: Low, Sleek Ponytails
Sophisticated, sexy and no-fuss, the understated pony is rapidly becoming one of the hottest dos for summer...
One of the more wearable trends to be seen off the runway is the minimal ponytail. Dries Van Noten and Ralph Lauren brought this popular ’90s look back to life for their Spring collections. All you need is a few products, and less than a minute to complete this hot-for-day-and-night ’do! STEP 1: Start with straightened hair, then run a coin-sized amount of shine serum or gloss through strands for smoothness. STEP 2: Decide if you want a centre or side parting, then tightly gather hair back towards the nape of your neck. Use a comb for a clean finish. STEP 3: Secure with a transparent rubber band (it looks neater than a coloured one), and wrap a section of hair around the base, securing it with a pin from underneath. To ensure sleek results, finish with hairspray to tame flyaways.
