Last summer we saw the reemergence of the sleek, low ponytail and this summer it’s back and even better.  With a fresh and contemporary take on a classic look that has proven its timeless capabilities. Taking the original sleek, low ponytail, with its central parting and power straight lengths, the added twist is much simpler to style than you think!

Start off as you would do with a sleek, low ponytail. Create a central parting and sweep your hair down into a low ponytail, sleeking your hair down with a smoothing brush and hair gel. Wrap a section of hair around your hair band to create a minimalist look and begin to tightly braid the lengths of your hair into a fishtail braid, using kirby grips and a clear elastic band to secure your hair at the halfway mark. Set your hair with a hair spray and brush the rest of your ponytail out so that it is sleek and flowing.

As the low half-twist ponytail requires intricate braiding, this look is best suited to long hair. Make sure you start off with silky straight hair, by straightening your hair before you begin styling. Your middle parting can be moved to the side, or parted in a way that best suits your face shape. As this is a minimalist look, we suggest keeping accessories to a minimum by holding your hair in place with either clear, or neutral accessories. Team up the finished look with a strappy flowing dress and sandals. Summer, here we come.
