It is becoming a go-to style for the fashion elite—for instance John Barrett recently opened Barrett’s Ponytail Bar in his chic New York salon, and if we learned one thing at Spring/Summer 2013 Fashion Week, it’s that the trendy-again style will be sticking around for a while.
On the runways, hairdressers got creative and updated the basic pony in myriad ways—high, low, textured, neat, shiny, matte—so there was literally a pony for every fashion personality. At Marc Jacobs, Redken Creative Consultant Guido created an Edie-Sedgwick 1960s-inspired pony with a teased, tousled finish. “This is a styled-then-slept-in look,” he says. “The height around the face is enough to highlight the features, but is not over-the-top.”
