How low can you go?

Ponytails are an ever-changing hairstyle. They can morph to suit a year’s trends, like last year for instance; 2013 was all about a sleek ponytail. Through their style evolution, one thing about ponytail remains certain: they are styles that are never to be going out of style. So, it doesn’t come as a surprise that many of 2014s trends are built upon the ponytail. And in all of them, one interpretation stands out as on-trend: the low ponytail.

Are you working the Business Casual look for board meeting this week? Then try the Chic Sporty ponytail (and by sporty, we don’t mean messy, wet hair.) This sleek finish is the epitome of chic when incorporated into a low ponytail and styled accordingly. When swept back as if slicked back or styled with a center part, the sleek, low ponytail accompanied by minimal accessories and daring smoky eyes becomes a key look for the summer evenings.

If sporty isn’t your style, then try opting for a textured, messy lowpony. This Romantic Boho finish is perfect for second day waves. You can play it safe with a center part or take it to the extreme with a deep side part. Play it up by throwing in a big soft braid and you’re ready to pull out the linen skirts and flower crowns. Its sophisticated yet soft and utterly feminine.
