The High Ponytail hairstyle has never been out of fashion, although there has been a re-surge of this popular hairstyle amongst female celebrities.
The style can be worn with long, medium or even short hair. The look is very versatile as you can wear it on any occasion. It willwill look sultry and sophisticated at a black-tie event or just hitting the town with the girls. Because the pony is often styled away from the face, it allows for a great canvas for making an impact with catwalk style make-up; dramatic eyes enhanced with a kohl pencil, why not add in some false eyelashes or bee-stung lips with a streak of your most catching lipstick.
However, you could keep it simple and go for the au naturel look….as they say ‘less is more’.
How to style a High ponytail
The ponytail can be achieved by pulling your hair up to the crown and centre (or side) of your head. You can either twist the hair up to the crown or pull it up un-twisted.
You will need a secure hairband to grip the hair. If you wanted to go for the slightly ‘ruffled’ look, you could back-comb the front of the hair to create a little bouffant (a very popular catwalk look in 2009) then secure the rest of the hair into the hairband. Another popular High Ponytail look can be achieved with a chopped or blunt fringe.
If you have particularly short hair, the ponytail can be styled using hair extensions. High or short extensions are affordable and come in a range of different colours and textures (curly, wavy or straight). Simply pull your own hair into the crown (or side) of your head and secure with a hairband. Attach the hair extension to your existing Ponytail using another secure hairband…it really couldn’t be any more simpler.
The High Ponytail has never been out of fashion simply because everyone can achieve this look regardless of the length or texture of your hair. On the plus side, it gives you an instant face lift…now what could be better than that!
