The hottest style this summer – low slung ponytail – in 4 simple steps.

You’ll need : Hairdryer / Mousse / Clear Elastic bands / Hairspray / Dry Shampoo

Ponytails rarely go out of fashion and the Summer Season shows were no exception: low and looped at Caroline Herrera, a three-part pony at Herve Leger, Gwyneth at the Oscars in Tom Ford with a simple, chic, low pony tail.

Here is a simple way to style your own…

  1. Rough dry some mousse into the hair for texture – we recommend GHD Volumising Foam (£12.95).
  2. Lightly spray some dry shampoo onto your hands. Use only your fingers to rake through the style (front to back) to create movement.
  3. Gather your hair at the nape of the neck, secure with a snag-free elastic band, take a piece of hair from underneath, wrap it around the elastic to hide it, then pin in.
  4. Spray some hairspray onto hands and use to manipulate the hair, shape it, leave it looking tousled. Try Fix anti Frizz, L’Oreal Prof (£9.50)
