Trends We Love: The Low Pony

In addition to bold prints and patterns and deep marsala hues, there’s another major trend that is making itself known in the beauty and fashion world: the low pony. Spotted on the runways and red carpets, this simple and sweet trend is getting a chic new spin, and we love it! Check out the reasons we are ALL about the low pony!

It's easy. Who doesn’t love a hairstyle that takes under five minutes to put together. Seriously, the low pony is as low maintenance as they come. All that’s required is a little product (gel, texturizing powder or hairspray, depending on the look you’re going for) and an elastic band or two (again, depending on the look you’re going for). Try sprinkling your hair with a little texturizing powder and teasing it a bit at the crown before pulling it all back into a low pony. This creates a chic, messy pony that looks more complicated than it is!

It's versatile. Similar to the magic of the messy bun, the low pony is one of those styles that works with a variety of looks and occasions. This season, we’ve seen the low pony everywhere from European catwalks and formal affairs, to office environments and brunch dates with the girls.

It's multifaceted. The beauty of this style is you can think outside the box and experiment with the low pony. Sleek it up for a formal affair, or braid it to keep it cute and out of your face for your next workout sesh! Need some inspo? Check out these three tutorials to help kickstart your love affair with the low pony!
