BEAUTY LOWDOWN

Beauty lowdown: the low ponytail

By Anna Heaton, 18 September 2015

Your favourite low-maintenance hairdo is undergoing a chic renaissance this season. Having made headlines at the AW15 shows (think Carolina Herrera and Michael Kors among others), the low pony is taking it down a few notches to the nape of the neck. Super-quick and easy to do, it's the ideal solution for hair that just won't play ball. Take note.

Slicked back into a wet-look style (just add British downpours) and secured with a long silver clasp, this low ponytail is the smart answer to an otherwise casual look. We're into it.

Hollywood beauty Vanessa Hudgens and her infinitely long tresses took the catwalk look onto the red carpet, this time tied with a fine elastic. Proof that even beach-hair babes can achieve this look.

The key to nailing the sleekness of the low pony is the holy grail of hair products: the Tangle Teezer. Run one through your mane to make it smooth and secure with a metal-detail hair elastic. This one is minimal and easy to tie as many times as you need. Finish with hairspray.

 

Tangle Teezer, £10.50
