The Low-Down

We have the low-down for you this weekend on a grown-up, low-maintenance and minimal style that’s currently all the rage: the low ponytail.

The low ponytail is a versatile hairstyle that won’t take you long to master and is a great addition to you styling arsenal.

No doubt you’ll have seen many a celebrity using this style to great effect recently as it can easily be tailored to suit your look or any occasion. If you need to look sleek and well presented, the low ponytail can be worn slicked back to create a smart, neat look:

Or our personal favourite is to give it a bit of texture, volume and movement by wearing the low ponytail more loosely:

It’s a great style for different face shapes, naturally slimming rounder faces as it pulls the eye down; and when worn loosely by pulling some layers out at the front it creates width for longer faces.
