Summer is well and truly here and in fact in Paris we are set to have a heatwave for the next fortnight if Google is to be believed. For those of you with long hair leaving it covering your neck in this heat is a nightmare. Sebastian has just started a new obsession that mummy should not have her hair up, great timing little one so he is upset with my look in the heat. The ponytail is so overlooked, it is fast and easy and you don't have to have a super sculpted Beyonce vibe going on, as, let's face it if you have your hair pulled that tight all day you will get a headache. No casual is key.
To achieve the perfect casual ponytail that looks great and will not leave you head sore can be achieved quite simply.
1. Tease all of the roots and backcomb about 2 inches beyond the roots.
2. Do not smooth it out.
3. Using your fingers as a comb bring your hair up into a ponytail.
4. Pull out some hair around your face to soften the look.
