The low ponytail: the 2017 summer trend

An essential Spring-Summer 2017 catwalk style, the low ponytail creates a variety of different looks. A real godsend, this great classic hairstyle is both simple to create and easy to wear. Read on to find out 3 ways on how you can wear it this season.

Chic and minimalist in straight hair

This season, the low ponytail is being worn with a side parting at Prada and Dries Van Noten, with a middle parting at the David Koma fashion show, and is being styled quite simply towards the back on the Boss catwalk. To create this look, opt for flawless poker straight locks , which are essential for this look. Get your hands on a discreet hair tie to hold your hair back at the nape. You could also wrap a strand of hair around the base of the ponytail to conceal the hair tie. Play with different textures to add character to your hairstyle with silky smooth locks, as seen at Lanvin, or with a summer wet-look effect.

Floaty and romantic

Partly braided at the nape around the ponytail’s base on the Teatum Jones catwalk, adorned with pretty, sleek ringlets at the tips at Philip Lim or wrapped in ribbons down the lengths of the strands in Japanese style at Louis Vuitton, the ponytail has completely reinvented itself with several different looks . It’s down to you to choose the one you prefer!

Simple & accessorised

Extremely vintage, Chanel’s version of the low ponytail is elaborate, on the side with a branded double C hair tie and a jazzy cap straight out of the 80s. Accessories are at the heart of this look , adding style to this simple updo. Fashion house Tibi has also gone for this look, with a ponytail that has literally been tied with a belt: the extent we go to for an original look! Hair clips, ribbons, headbands and hats are all your best accomplices when it comes to trying to recreate this trend.
