A sleek, cute, high ponytail: the new nonchalant

Combining the cute with the sleek – high ponytails are back with a vengeance. Will yours be slick and stylish or nonchalantly sexy?

The high tail

What's not to love about this instant makeover? With a hint of 90's flavour, the high ponytail is back to stay and we're delighted to hear it! So, what's the easiest way to fix your high tail?

Step 1. Positon.

Place your pony tail just over the crown of your head.


Step 2. Tie it up


Tie it into a classic pony tail with a simple elastic.


Step 3. Pimp it up


Adapt to your taste and style – wrap a strand of hair around for a perfect 'no tie' natural finish, or sculpt a few strands in studied chaos.


What the editors say: 80's or 90's – wherever your inspiration, we love the powerful ponytail riding high above. It's also got the added bonus of giving you an instant facelift!

Style it

Slick down the ponytail with L'Oréal Professionel Tecni.Art Liss Control. The stylist's favourite, it's the perfect smooth control gel-cream to tame unruly, rebel strands!
Just use 1 to 2 hazelnut-size drops easily combed in.

 

For a maximum sleek effect or organise a few strategically placed strands for an uber 'nonchalent' look. The ultimate in laid back. But remember, it's got to look like 'you just woke up like that' – or rather, it just' worked out looking that great'!

Why nonchalant?

So, do you want to look nonchalant? We think so! Well, first you should really know just, exactly what it means... so here's the precise definition:

Nonchalant [adjective that applies to a person or manner]- Feeling or appearing casually calm and relaxed; not displaying anxiety, interest, or enthusiasm.

 

Yup, we like the sound of that!
