ONYTAILS: The lazy girl’s an­swer to ev­ery­day hairstyling or a glam op­tion for go­ing out-out?

We used to think the for­mer, but then we clapped eyes on the AW17 cat­walks and saw the hum­ble hairdo in a whole new light. From pol­ished per­fec­tion to crimped and vo­lu­mi­nous, these ponies are any­thing but bor­ing – and they’re easy to do your­self, you just need the right tools and tech­niques... MIR­ROR shine and not a hair out of place – that was the brief at Carolina Her­rera and Os­car de la Renta in New York (the city that ba­si­cally in­vented the term ‘pol­ished glam­our’), with Eudon Choi, pic­tured, and Shrimps fol­low­ing suit in London. Louisa Day, T3 UK brand am­bas­sador, re­veals how to get the look:

1. Pre­pare hair with a heat pro­tec­tor spray, blow-dry, then straighten, fo­cus­ing most at­ten­tion on mid-lengths and ends.

2. Us­ing a tail comb, cre­ate a sharp cen­tre or side part­ing. Brush hair into a low pony­tail at the nape of the neck, en­sur­ing the crown is flat. Se­cure with a band.

3. For an ex­tra sleek look, work a small amount of smooth­ing lo­tion into the palm of your hands then smooth down fly­aways.

YOU WILL NEED: T3 Sin­glepass Luxe straight­ener £145, House of Fraser; Moroc­canoil heat styling pro­tec­tion £19.35, FeelUnique, feelunique.com; KMS TameFrizz smooth­ing lo­tion £17.50, LookFantastic, lookfantastic.com STILL neat, but more re­laxed, and a lit­tle bit wispy, this pony­tail – as seen at Ja­son Wu (right) and Burberry – is the most ver­sa­tile of the lot.

“En­hanc­ing your hair’s nat­u­ral tex­ture will per­son­alise the look, mak­ing it unique to you,” says Holli Smith, New York Fash­ion Week am­bas­sador for Tre­semme, as she talks us through the look:

1. Start­ing with freshly washed, damp hair, ap­ply a small amount of mousse and evenly dis­trib­ute through­out the hair for con­trol and added tex­ture.

2. Di­vide the hair into four equal sec­tions and blow-dry, mak­ing sure to leave the ends with their nat­u­ral tex­ture.

3. Cre­ate a mid­dle or deep side part­ing that is not per­fect and slightly messy, leav­ing out a few wisps to frame the face.

4. Brush hair back to­wards the nape of the neck to cre­ate a very low pony­tail. Spritz with hair­spray be­fore con­tin­u­ing to comb hair back with fin­gers, min­imis­ing the ap­pear­ance of per­fectly brushed hair.

5. With your chin down, se­cure hair in a very low pony­tail with an elas­tic. Fin­ish by blow-dry­ing out of the ends of the pony­tail to elon­gate and vo­lu­mise slightly.

NIVEA Body Rich Nour­ish­ing Mois­turiser launched back in 1963 was the first liq­uid body lo­tion de­signed to care for dry to very dry skin. Now, Nivea is re­launch­ing its body range with a new im­proved for­mula that mois­turises, soothes and soft­ens skin.

The new for­mula fea­tures a deep mois­ture serum that pen­e­trates deeper into the up­per lay­ers of the epi­der­mis than ever be­fore, so hy­dra­tion is locked in for 48 hours. Choose from three key prod­ucts de­signed to cater for all skin types, RRP £3.99 (250ml) and £5.99 (400ml) at Boots and other lead­ing high street re­tail­ers.

YOUR hand­bag spoke to us and told us it wants one of these adorable An­drea Gar­land lip balm mir­ror com­pacts, £15. Are you re­ally go­ing to deny it? Find them at an­drea­gar­land.co.uk

CHROME nails are ideal for party sea­son. Now we won’t lie, Sally Hansen Sa­lon Chrome Nail Kits, £30 at Su­per­drug, take a bit of work: ap­ply two lay­ers of nail pol­ish, buff in a chrome pow­der, add a chrome ef­fect top coat and then fin­ish with a clear top coat too.

Luck­ily the fi­nal ef­fect is worth the ef­fort and we love the dra­matic colour. WE MAY be in the month of Movem­ber but there’s re­ally no need for women to join in the fundrais­ing be­yond mak­ing a do­na­tion to any par­tic­i­pat­ing male friends.

In fact, if you are look­ing to get rid of any fa­cial fuzz ladies, take a leaf out of Thandie New­ton’s book. The West­world ac­tress, above, posted a photo of her­self ‘deal­ing with the tash’ on In­sta­gram and tagged Jolen Creme Bleach in it.

Well if it is good enough for Thandie... Find it at Boots priced from £4.35.
