For most people, a ponytail is the go to updo hairstyle when you’re feeling uninspired – but it doesn’t have to be that way! Ponytails can be pimped and preened into some seriously sophisticated styles, you only need to look at the Autumn/Winter 15/16 runway to see some ponies that are anything but boring. So follow suit and grab some hairspo from these runway updo’s you can create at home.
1. The Power Twist
It doesn’t get much easier than this for a power pony update! Tails took on an ethic twist, baring a slight resemblance to bamboo at Dannijo in New York. Get the look by sweeping your hair back into a pony, then take another hair band and twist it tightly, securing with a the band. Leave the bottom of the pony free and finish with a sprits of some heavy-duty hairspray.
2. The Cool Crimp
Be brave enough to reach for your crimpers and add some 80’s inspired texture tto your tresses. Do like the stylists backstage at Stella and using Babyliss Pro Hair Crimper, £19.99, crimp small sections throughout the hair before tying into a ponytail instead of your whole head to avoid overkill.
3. Slick Sides
Incase you didn’t know, slicked back hair is all the rage right now and you’ll gain some serious style points for following suit. Instead of doing the typical Khloe K swept back and down, why ot mix things up a bit and just sweep back the sides, hold with hairspray or gel, then finish with a low, messy pony.
