The Surprisingly Easy Way To Instantly Upgrade Your Ponytail

With the weather the way it is (that'd be downright miserable), your hair philosophy has probably been to wrap an elastic around your locks, slap a beanie on top, and call it a day. We feel you.
However, we also know that you and your mane deserve better. And, as luck would have it, a look back at the spring '13 runway at Richard Chai provided the inspiration for a pony that's still low-maintenance but packs plenty of punch thanks to the addition of an asymmetrical parting. Think low-key and unassuming, but with a fashion-forward edge.
We tapped Nicole Pizer, owner of Whiskey Divine Salon on Hanbury Street, to recreate this knock-out ponytail on our lovely model, Natasha Lenart, a development assistant at Victoria Victoria Beckham. With a minimum of products and some easy-peasy maneuvers, Natasha's hair was straight-off-the-catwalk-cool within minutes.
Now, who'd dare to hide this baby under a beanie?
