Playing Up the Ponytail
What's one hairstyle that works for almost everyone and for any occasion? The ponytail.
This classic 'do does more then keep your hair off your face. When styled correctly, it can add glamour to any outfit.
“Ponytails are practically the easiest way to change your look,” explains New York City-based celebrity hairstylist Angelo David. “Aside from the fact that styling takes practically seconds to do, a ponytail is a good look if you want to highlight your face. It can also instantly make you look younger, since you pull your hair back and up, creating an illusion of an instant facelift.”
Raphael Reboh, owner and founder of Femme Coiffure Hair Spa in Miami Beach, says the ponytail has even more to offer than a Botox-free makeover.
“Some women experience hairstyles that fall by midday. It could be due to the weather or they may be overdue for a haircut,” says Reboh. “If you are in between treatments, the ponytail conceals any hair needs. It works in the office, if it is sleek and non-fussy. It is also sexy for nighttime, exposing the décolletage, face and ornamental accessories.”
