The Perfect Pony

September 23, 2012

Hope y'all have had a fabulous weekend! Tonight I wanted to do a hair post since it's been a while. 

One of my absolute FAVORITE hairstyles is the pony tail. Believe it or not, there really is an art to it. The varieties of pony tails are endless....but my personal favorite happens to be a high pony tail, with a bit of volume on top and the pony tail itself teased out. 

Sometimes, when you least expect it, fashion inspiration will hit. Last week this came in the form of Kate Hudson on the Ellen Show. I now present to you my ideal pony tail....

Sigh. I just LOVE the volume on top, how it is slicked back on the sides, and the pony tail itself is full of volume. So of course I did what any fashion and beauty obsessed person would do, I attempted my hand at it that day....

Next time I need to make it a little smoother on the sides, but I guess it wasn't too bad for being in a hurry! I did my hair in a similar style (but a pony tail more in the middle of my head) for my college roomie's wedding last year....

The key to hiding the hairband? Take a piece of hair from your pony tail and wrap it a few times around the ponytail holder. Put in a few bobby pins and voila, it looks like a fancy updo that took you literally no time! 

I really enjoyed wearing an easy and worry-free hairstyle for the evening!!
