A Low Ponytail saves any bad hair day and is a popular street style look for 2018.

In 2018 the Ponytail is moving down, from the crown of the head to the nape of the neck. We have spotted the so-called Low Ponytail on the streets of fashion capitals from Paris to New York. Follow our instructions to copy the look.

Five steps to the perfect Ponytail

  1. Gather your hair at the nape of the neck and pull it back.
  2. Smooth your hair back evenly with a brush.
  3. For a super smooth and tidy look, use a straightening iron.
  4. Finally, use a hair tie or a decorative grip. Tip: You can also wrap a strand of hair around a thin hair tie to make it invisible.
  5. Tip: A Ponytail lasts longer when your hair isn't freshly washed because the hair tie has more grip. Straight and fine hair is best washed at least one day before.
