Check out Olivia's bubble ponytail

Hairstyle How-To Video: The Quirky Ponytail

If there’s one hairdo that dominated the AW11 catwalk this year, it’s the ponytail. So we thought it was about time you joined in on the trend too! Here are our top tips for the perfect pony:

Firstly, placement is key. Make sure you tie yours just above your ears – it’s the most flattering point on the head. Secondly, you should always pull the hair tight at the nape of your neck, it makes it seem longer so you look super-feminine.

Now we’ve got the tips out of the way, follow our hair how-to video from LOOK’s Beauty Writer, Katie Selby, to get the perfect bubble pony like Olivia Wilde – it’s so cool! But be warned ladies, you need long hair for this ‘do. If yours isn’t quite Olivia’s length, invest in some extensions. SF
