Of the many things the new year brings, New York fashion week is one of my favorites. The only problem, while the models walk this year’s spring runways in long beach-y waves and bronzed skin, it’s still twenty degrees out and snowing in Syracuse. While I am itching to throw of my woolly hats and put some summery pink streaks in my hair (more to come on this in the future!), the rest of the world is still in winter mode. That’s not to say, however, that the spring runways haven’t brought the world plenty of applicable trends. One thing I noticed was a plethora of pretty ponytails. And nothing is more perfect for the young, sophisticated college girl.
While the ponytail is a hairstyle staple, designers showed that there are plenty of ways to update the classic. The Marchesa runway, for example, styled elegant ponies with sleek, straight hair, while Diesel slicked back curly hair into messy-cool mops. Others used weaving techniques and accessories to play up the do. The look can hardly be called a trend, as pony tails never go out of style, but the trick is adding a creative touch so that you don’t end up looking like you just came from the gym. Whether this means simply wrapping a strand around your ponytail holder or accessorizing with brightly colored clips, personality is key to any pony!
Here are some pictures from the spring runways that you can use for hairstyle inspiration:
