Pop­ping pony­tails

True Love Hair - - CON­TENTS - By LER­ATO SEUOE

We’ve wit­nessed yet an­other sea­son of ponies trend­ing. Whether you wear them low or high, or you use hair ex­ten­sions that match your nat­u­ral tex­ture, the styles are fun and var­ied.

IT’S HIGH TIME

The high pony­tail is an in­stant facelift. Be sure to tie it tightly as it’ll tug at your edges and cause dam­age to the scalp. This sea­son has been about em­brac­ing your tex­ture and work­ing with what you have. The look is a guide, but you can wear it with your own tex­ture. Ap­ply a mois­tur­is­ing spray to the hair – it must be just enough to al­low you to comb through the hair smoothly. Brush the hair up­wards to the po­si­tion you want your pony­tail to sit. Tie the hair us­ing hair­bands, then at­tach a piece for vol­ume or length that matches your nat­u­ral hair tex­ture.

THE LOW­DOWN

Low pony­tails re­main a clas­sic. For an up­dated look, hair­styl­ists used ac­ces­sories such as rib­bons, strips of leather and un­der­stated gold rings. We look for­ward to see­ing what else they will come up with. If you’re not keen on adding lit­tle bits and bobs, keep it clean and wrap your own hair around the base of the pony­tail.

Your pony­tail is in­com­plete if your edges are messy and out of con­trol. Grab an old tooth­brush or bris­tle brush, dip into your prod­uct and brush stray hairs down. You can even play with the fin­ish you de­sire by adding rings and waves.
