Low & Loose

This season on the Tibi runway, low ponytails were loosely tied and tucked into hoods and sweaters for that carefree, lived-in look. To recreate the style is as simple as protecting clean hair first with L’Oreal’s Smooth Intense Xtreme Straight Crème and then roughly blowdrying it for volume. Adding a few wavy curls through the midsection helps give it that extra volume. Then pull the hair into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck, secure it with a hair band, and wrap a section of hair around the band to cover it. Pull out a few pieces to loosen the look, spray with our favorite Elnett for hold, and voila, you’ve got an effortlessly chic ponytail . . . with very little effort. No sweat!

    I love the way they look, but I feel like they would get on my nerves! I guess you could use product to keep the hair out of your face?

    I love this low-and-loose look. It’s the perfect summer hair so it’s out of your face but still semi-styled. I also like that they covered the pony tails with a strand of hair.

    While I admit I do like the blonde pony 2nd from the bottom on the left, the rest of these “carefree, lived-in” (i.e. homeless) looks don’t do it for me. Come on guys. If I saw a girl walking around like this on the streets I would offer the poor thing a comb. Or show her to the nearest shower.

    I can never pull this off! I really think it just doesn’t suit my personality (I believe style should fit personality). I always picture a tall, blonde woman who’s very calm wearing low ponytails. I’m small, brunette and hyperactive. I will always wear a high ponytail.

    Wow! I love the hairstyles I want to give it a try. I love the photos in this post! They make it easy for me to try this hairstyle out. I just have a question though. Is this hairstyle going to be good for a really black hair? In the photos, there is no black-haired model wearing this hairstyle. I really want to try this out but of course I want to make sure this would look good on me.
