How low can you go? Low-slung ponytail vs. Low, neat ponytail

low slung ponytail vs low neat ponytail

Today's Match the Look is all about low ponytails. Which do you prefer here? A laid back, slung-over-the-shoulder low ponytail, or its chic, put-together sister, the low neat ponytail? Vote now!

Low-slung ponytail attitude


The style: This look is all about nonchalance and carefree beauty with a touch of sass. That said, there's still some hard work here, as keeping your ponytail in place all day isn't as effortless as it looks...


The hairstyle: You'll need super smooth hair for this look. The Mythic Oil shampoo and conditioner can help give hair that glossy shine, but for poker-straight locks, we recommend L'Oréal Professionnel's Steampod treatment, which now comes in limited edition – Midnight in Paris - that uses steam (less damaging to hair that a flat iron) to smooth down cuticles.


What the editors say: An over-the-shoulder style is a great way to keep your hair up while also showcasing your color. Ombré and balayage effects look great on a low-slung ponytail for a chic, boho look!


Low, neat ponytail elegance


The style: Showing how ponytails can be classy, this low and neat ponytail has a diva side to it thanks to the voluminous back section, while still staying down-to-earth with a few loose sections.


The hairstyle: Before tying up the hair, gently backcomb the back-top section (only slightly), then smooth un-backcombed hair over the top. Tie up using an elastic, then use a tail comb to separate a few sections at the front. You can also use the tail comb to loosen the hair and to inject a bit of volume to this chic, easy look.


What the editors say: We love brunette backcombed hair, as you can really see the way the shape elongates the silhouette. A texturizing hairspray can help keep the elastic from sliding off, and add more volume to the back.
