Fall/Winter 2010-2011 Ponytail Trends

Who says that the classic ponytail cannot look fantastic and stylish? Well, if you have medium length or long hair you can play with it choosing one of the various ponytail styles. For fall/winter 2010-2011, the timeless pony comes in so many different versions. From the basic, simple one from our childhood to a more sophisticated one, this versatile hairstyle has been reinvented this season allowing you to break the monotony.

This season you can create different looks using the numerous variants of the already known ponytail. Even though it might sound difficult to believe that such a simple hairstyle can be so versatile, fall/winter 2010-2011 ponytail trends are original and practical. For a beautiful ponytail you must prepare your hair and keep it clean, healthy and with enough volume so you can get the result you are looking for.

The classic ponytail is very versatile and allows you to try so many different styles. For a daytime look you can go for a casual ponytail (DKNY) with hair gathered at the nape of the neck, with or without bangs. You can set the parting on one side and leave a few flyaways on the sides for an effortless, natural result. A loose ponytail can add a cool touch to your overall appearance as simplicity has a refreshing instant effect. You have the possibility to wear this hairstyle to a casual outfit, when going for a coffee with your friends, or on a weekend out. If you have bangs, keep the look soft by allowing them to frame the face (Cacharel).

One must admit that a ponytail is one of the fastest and the easiest ways to change your hairstyle without too much effort. The best thing you can do is to choose the just-rolled-out-of-bed pony that instantaneously boosts your look.
Start by washing your hair and blow dry it in a messy way. Then, use a small amount of hair gel or mousse and apply it into your hair. Make a ponytail and give it a tousled touch. You can set the pony at the nape of the neck, but on one side. As a final step, leave a few tendrils to frame your face. Draw your inspiration from the DKNY runway show. You can leave your hair imperfect and slightly messy for a laid-back style. For a retro look, try the ultra volume ponytail (Cynthia Rowley, Michael Kors).

Backcomb by lifting some rows at the crown and brush downward from the mid-lengths to the roots. Repeat the action a few times, smooth hair back towards the crown, and apply some hold-strong hairspray. You can backcomb until you obtain the fluffiness you were looking for. Finish by securing your hair were you want your ponytail to be.

Another style that reminds us of our innocent and sweet childhood years is the higher ponytail (Y3, Byblos), which you can set on the side (Lacoste) for a flirty, playful look. Even though a classic, this style has been rethought for fall/winter 2010-2011 and reinvented in order to perfectly enhance your features. It is a quick and easy hairstyle you can make in not time and it doesn’t require special skills or styling products or tools. You can straighten your hair and secure the pony at the crown of the head using an elastic band. If you want to settle down rebellious hairs, apply a gentle layer of hair spray.

You can also choose a ponytail when going out with your friends and you want something sophisticated, yet not too elaborated and studied (Ermanno Scervino). This look is so unforeseeable, but so chic and stylish. In order to get the perfect look and for a smooth, silky result use some spray for shiny hair. Then, make a side parting and place the ponytail on the side securing it with a fine elastic band. For a flawless look, camouflage the elastic band with a lock of hair taken from the pony.

Despite its simplicity, a ponytail can represent the ideal choice for a more formal or business look. The severe version of the classic pony is perfect for those of you who want something more sophisticated, yet easy to make in an instant. The straight, slicked ponytail is the minimalist and chic variant for fall/winter 2010-2011.

You just need a styling product in order to smooth and slick your hair, such as a hair gel. Afterwards, make a side parting and pull the hair into a ponytail at the nape of the neck and secure it in place with a thin elastic band. Simple, yet so effective! There are so many inspiring collections, such as Calvin Klein, Akris, Stella McCartney, or Jil Sander. If you want something more chic and ladylike take a look at the Louis Vuitton or Roland Mouret collections, where ponytails are the sweetest expression of femininity.
