Spring Summer 2017 Collection: Low Half-Twist Ponytail

The humble low ponytail was a runway staple at Paris Fashion week, check out this season's twist on a classic look!

Why we love it

The Low Half-Twist Ponytail takes the blank canvas of a basic low ponytail and elevates it with a simple innovation. The overall style is still chic and refined, and would work for a sophisticated evening event or night out on the town!

Get the look

The fundamental principles of a classic low ponytail still apply here - straightened hair, a centre part, and hair gathered at the base of your head. From here a small piece of hair has been wrapped around the hair tie, ponytail divided into two sections, and tight fish tail braid created in one section of the ponytail only. To secure the fishtail in that one section, use fringe pins (U-shaped bobby pins) on the bottom side of your ponytail, to wrap and secure the hair as you go. Make sure you set that braid with L'Oréal Professionnel Infinium Pure.

Hairspray to make sure it stays in place, and brush the length of your ponytail to leave that part sleek and flowing. Tame any extra fly aways or stray hairs on your head with an extra spritz of hairspray. If that all sounds too tricky, visit your nearest professional hairstylist to get this excellent evening look happening on your hair!

How to make it work for you

This is a style for long hair, up for interpretation as well and can be fine-tuned to any face shape. Lightly tease the roots of your hair if you want a less polished look, or experiment with a side part for a more casual version. This look already has an embellishment with the addition of the half-twist fishtail, so we would leave off chunky accessories in this case and keep it simple.
