Party Ponytails At G&M


The ponytail is one of those styles that never gets old, because there are a million ways to wear it! What’s more, when it comes to party season, the pony is the most versatile option ever – here are our four favourite ways to wear it. If you can’t manage it at home, book into the salon and we’ll do it for you!

High volume
We love this sophisticated, slightly retro ponytail on Reese Witherspoon. Rather than just sticking on a fake ponytail, her stylist has done the groundwork, prepping the hair so it’s voluminous and long-lasting. If you fancy this look, ask your stylist about our R+Co Dallas Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner – they’re perfect for adding that much-needed oomph!

As with all hair trends, they start on the catwalk, and this season’s ponytail is all about tying it up. Whether it’s sleek and simple or messed up and tousled, applying multiple thin elastics turns your ponytail into a real work of art!

Sexy glam
No-one does a relaxed, tousled ponytail better than Jennifer Lopez. Here she wears a girl-next-door bouncy pony that’s dressed up with a choppy fringe. The fringe softens the look and also frames the face, so it’s an ultra-flattering style for most face shapes. To make the most of this look, use texture powders and salt sprays.

This look isn’t just for Christmas; you’ll be seeing sporty, slick ponytails all over the place come Spring . It might look simple, but this style still needs some prep work; before you cinch all the hair into a single hairband you’ll need to give it a killer blowdry and perhaps a styling iron session to ensure super straight results. For staying power you can use a styling gel or if you prefer to keep things light, opt for a flexible fixing spray.
