Trending 2015: The Low Ponytail

After gawping at the red carpet hair celebs have been showcasing at the recent Golden Globes, SAG's and NTA's there was a clear stand out trend. The simple ponytail.
Worn low and sleek, a whole host of celebs have chosen this for their style and it really works! I love how it can work on any length of hair, from long to short. One thing all the pony paraders had in common was a sleek, sharp look. Partings were either straight down the middle, or deep to the side, and hair was smoothed into the ponytail. Emma Stone, Reese Witherspoon, and Lorde have all been spotted on the red carpet with the low-maintenance, high-impact style.
Low down on the low pony
- Decide on whether you are going for a middle parting, or deep side parting. Use a fine tooth comb to get a perfect line and part the hair straight down.
- If you have curly, or wavy hair, blowdry or straighten to give as smooth a finish as possible. This style really wows with straight hair
- Smooth hair using some product, I love Bed Head by TIGI Matte Manipulator for holding hair, and prefer a matte finish, or if you fancy giving hair a treat pop a couple of drops of serum (I really like the smell of the Aussie Dual Personality Style Shine & Coloured Hair one) and run over the hair downwards to the ends.
- Use a paddle brush, this Denman Porcupine Paddle Brush is great at getting a smooth shine and brush hair into a low ponytail that rests on the nape, or slightly higher if it feels more comfortable. 
- Secure with a clear elastic tie, and finish with some hairspray (my favourite at the moment? Fudge Urban Iced Raspberry & Vanilla - smells so good!)

Very wearable, and easy to do, and perfect for the rain/wind/snow/asshole weather we are having.
