A girl's best friend
The ponytail really is a girl’s best friend. It’s reliable, steadfast and will do what it takes to go with you anywhere. Whether you’re going to the gym, running errands, going on a first date or are famous enough to make an appearance on the red carpet, the ponytail is ready to be by your side, or rather, on your head.
The ultimate power of the ponytail lies in its versatility. Whether you have medium length, wavy hair or long, straight locks, the ponytail can come to your style rescue.
Stylists have fun re-inventing the pony every year to complement the current fashion trends. In 2011, we saw a plethora of textured and messy ponies based at the nape of the neck. But 2012 runways have exposed the high, polished ponies in a variety of charming hues to pay homage to fashion’s recent celebration of color. Here is a sampling of ponies to inspire you the next time you go to pull your hair back.
When it comes to inspired hair, there is no such thing as a tame ‘tail. LC rocks a pink dipped pony look while Olivia Wilde had some fun with a highly stylized pony. Katy Perry epitomizes rock 'n' roll with her extra high, extra saturated brightly colored pony. Summer is the perfect time to experiment with different types of ponies to keep hair off your face and neck and keep you looking (and feeling) polished, powerful and cool!
