Why should topknots
have all of the fun, we ask? The humble pony is back and better than ever
— and our favorite part about the 'tail is that there are endless ways to wear it: textured, straight, high, low, perky, sleek. Ponytails are like the Matt Damon of the hair world: always likable, infinitely versatile. Yep, we went there.
To show you just how stylish and cutting-edge your favorite workout 'do can be, we teamed up with hair magician Isabel Guillen of the John Barrett Salon
to create five totally fresh takes on the 'tail
, all of which can be done easily at home. The only tools you'll need? Elastics, bobby pins, a parting comb, and a teasing brush. Get ready, ladies, because your end-of-summer hair is about to get an upgrade.
