There is nothing more effortless than a ponytail. Especially for a girl like me, who is both completely clueless about hair (blow dry, flat iron.. done!) and has no patience spending hours on it. I would hire a hairstylist to follow me daily, if I were a celebrity. ;)
Anyway, back to the ponytail. When you are having a bad hair day or simply want to keep your hair out of your face, the ponytail is the easiest and quickest fix. I love the punch of a high ponytail too. It can look sophisticated and cute all at once. Just add some volume first by teasing at the roots. Spray with Bed Head or Beach Hair, tie with an elastic and secure a loose strand with some bobby pins around the base of the ponytail. Voila!
