Cheryl Cole has mastered the art of the slicked back pony, and we want in.
The X Factor judge shared an Instagram snap of her super-slick high ponytail from backstage in the judges’ dressing room, styled by celeb hairdresser Percy (aka. one half of Percy & Reed).
While we love Cheryl’s tumbling, bouncy locks, this razor sharp style brings instant sass and sophistication (plus does wonders for the cheekbones) and is also the perfect no-fuss summer style in this temperemental British heat.
To recreate her look at home, blow dry with a paddle brush while pointing the nozzle of your hairdrier down the hair shaft for a smooth finish.
Then, brush your hair backwards while gathering into a ponytail at the middle of the back of your head and secure with a hairband before smoothing down with a spritz of hairspray and a dab of high-shine spray to finish off.
