The fountain is proving to be a huge hit on catwalks this season. This hairstyle, which you’ll remember from your junior school days, is making a comeback. The fountain is easy to create and is a great way to give your day-to-day styles a spontaneous feel.
As you’d expect, this hairstyle is seen worn on the top of the head, and is created in one slapdash movement for a dishevelled effect. Start by backcombing the front of your hair, then gather it all at on top of your head. Tie into a ponytail, leaving a few pieces out. Faithful to the childhood version of the hairstyle, the 2013-2014 edition of the fountain offers hints of a modern, feminine schoolgirl.
Tempted by the fountain? Remember you’ll need mid-length or long hair to be able to tie it up at the top of your head. And, as your ends are particularly visible, make sure you visit your hairdresser regularly to keep them looking nice and healthy. The fountain, the perfect hairstyle for bad hair days!
