Seen all over catwalks this year, the low, sleek tie-back is one of the most fashion-forward ponytail hairstyles for long hair. Here’s how it’s done.
1. Straighten your hair. For the ultimate sleek, glossy look, use Philips StraightCare Prestige Nutri Wonder straighteners – the nourishing natural oils released by the plates will help you get the flawless, frizz-free effect you’re looking for. Alternatively, make sure that you apply a nourishing oil (such as argan oil) to the hair when it’s wet.
2. Apply a shine serum or oil. Work it in from the mid-lengths down to the tips: this is where your hair most needs a moisture boost.
3. Choose your parting. If you’re aiming for a bold Jane-Eyre style statement, go straight down the centre. If not, a side parting gives this look a softer kind of chic.
4. Brush into a low ponytail. Use a clear elastic band to fix – minimalism is key to this style.
