Perfect Ponytails To Rock This Summer

by The Zoe Report

A no-brainer for effortless summer hair, ponytails have continually proven to be friendly warm weather companions. Looking to rock the style heavy and often, we referenced the S/S ’13 runways for inspiration to keep our updos fresh and necks cool all season long.

FLIRTY SIDE PONY: Jenny Packham Spring 2013

TWIST DETAIL: Reem Acra Spring 2013

Hot tools are your friend for this look! Blow out and flat iron your mane to pin-straight perfection, then slick it back, playing around with twisting back and securing the sides to proportions that flatter your face.

TEASED & RETRO: Marc Jacobs Spring 2013

Give hair a major boost by backcombing at the roots and crown to your desired effect, employing the help of a texture paste to really rough it up. (Images courtesy of Redken)

WAVY & BEACHY: Nanette Lepore Spring 2013

Play up a swept-back, effortless look with lightly tousled locks—work with your natural wave, or create it by wrapping random sections around a curling wand.

LOW & SLEEK: Richard Chai Spring 2013

Keep a low pony looking ultra-sleek by taming flyaways with a fine tooth comb and treating hair to a fair helping of shine spray.
