It’s no secret that ponytails are huge news this season. Only the other week we celebrated the awesome ponies sported out on the same very same night by Beyoncé, Charlize Theron and Tara Reid, challenging you lovely lot to do away with your preconceptions of the ponytail as a speedy solution to a bad hair day, and instead embrace it as this season’s most fashion-forward do.
Pony tails were ALL over the catwalks this season, clocking up quite literally hundreds of catwalk meters from London to Paris, New York and Milan. Plus, the humble pony is in fact, far more versatile than you might have thought. There were glossy natural looking ones at Balmain, knotted ones at Carven, leather bound ones at Hermes and bouncy blow dried ones tossed over shoulders at Jaeger.
And it would seem that British songstress Alexandra Burke has been swatting up on her catwalk references. Rather aptly we think, bearing in mind that she was spotted last night leaving the Rose Club in London sporting the most delightful low swung, side pony after the launch of her new lipstick collaboration with MUA cosmetics.
“The secret to working this seasons’ show pony lies in achieving shiny, swishy, expensive looking hair,” explains session stylist Zoe Irwin. “A straggly excuse for a tail just won't do, so be sure to arm yourself with an ample styling kit, including a shine-inducing shampoo as well as a root lifting product to add in some serious oomph.”
With this in mind would you not agree that Miss Burke deserves an accolade for her dedication to one of spring/summers hottest trends? Glossy, super shiny and twisted into a thick, luscious looking tail, hers is everything that this season’s pony should be; healthy, voluminous and uber luxurious looking. Paired with that very flattering and on trend raspberry lip it makes for a match made in beauty heaven!
