Not every hairstyle on the runway is or becomes a trend. Hairstyles will always come down to a number of things – hair type, length, face shape and personal preference – but that doesn’t mean we can’t look to the fashion world for inspiration and new ideas with each new season. As the season is getting warmer again, we’ll be searching for spring hairstyles and summer hairstyles for 2014 that feel fresh and on-point, but without the requirement to spend hours in front of the mirror each morning.
The milkmaid braid is one of spring’s crowning glories, deceptively complex but high in impact. More hairstyles evolve with deep side parts, and soft flowing waves – as always – leave some imprint on the imagination for those carefree summer days.
THE LOW PONY TAIL STYLE:
Ponytails aren’t so much a trend as they are an evergreen hairstyle. But despite this, they change and morph to suit a year’s trends – last year was all about a sleek ponytail, a tie-in with the year’s sports fashion trend. Through their style evolution, one thing about ponytail hairstyles remains certain: they are styles that are never to be going out of style. So, it doesn’t come as a surprise that many of 2014′s hair trends are built upon the ponytail. And in all of them, one interpretation stands out as on-trend: the low ponytail. From the hassle-free to the sumptuous, from daytime to evening, the low ponytail is amongst the hairstyles to master for your spring 2014 hair repertoire. But not any low ponytail will suffice.
THE LOW PONY TAIL: A CLASSIC REVISED:
We all know what a classic ponytail is: a hairstyle that gathers all your hair from the front and holds it together at the nape of your neck. With that serving as foundation, the ways to style the ponytail are unsurprisingly varied. But this, spring / summer 2014, the styling of the ponytail is dominated by one distinct accent: whether it goes from loose to messy or it’s super-straight and sleek, the ponytail look this season is the low ponytail.
THE LOW PONY TAIL: A CASUAL FINISH:
If sports and minimalism aren’t your style, then spring 2014 allows for plenty of cool, low ponytail interpretations. A daytime look, this low ponytail with a casual finish still has plenty of polish. Like the daytime sleek low ponytail, this casual interpretation works with a deep side part, sweeping across the forehead and behind the ear.
MESSY, LOW PONY TAIL FOR STRAIGHT HAIR:
You can take the casual factor up another step with a message, bed-hair texture low ponytail. Gathered at the nape of the neck and tucked behind the ears, it evokes an absolutely effortless feel provided the elements are right: don’t pull all your hair into the ponytail; leave some strands to fall across your face and to sit out behind your ears. And don’t forget the all-important texture / volume on the crown.
