The humble pony is getting a sophisticated makeover this season. Heidi Klum (left) showed off the style on the red carpet with a disheveled twisted pony pulled slightly to the side and paired with butterfly earrings. On the catwalks for Spring/Summer 2009 the do was out in full force too. At the Marc Jacobs show (centre) the girls wore black fabric hair bands with classic ponytails for a youthful edge. Meanwhile backstage at Nicole Farhi super low ponys were full and fat. The ends were looped through the elastic to give a messy yet polished vibe.
For laid back glamour wear over the ears like Heidi or alternatively ape the models and pull the hair tight across the scalp for an insouciant air. Flyaways and texture keep it looking modern. I love that this is such an easy way to copy the catwalk without having to master complicated hair techniques. What do you think of this trend?
