Ponytails are a quick and easy option, great if your diary is full to bursting. Worn sleek, as seen at Dior, Jil Sander and Erdem, they exude a quiet confidence - it's easy chic at its best. Or ruffle the pony with a mist of texturising spray seen at House of Holland and Matthew Williamson (ELLE loves Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray, from £18 for 75ml at Space NK).
Once you've chosen your texture, how you tie it can subtly change the feel of your pony. Go glam with a ponytailer (seen at David Koma) ASOS and Topshop have good selections. Tie with a black ribbon (seen at Erdem) to add a pretty, whimsical feel. Keep it utilitarian with a functional hair elastic in clear or black. Alternatively, wrap the ponytail with a section of your own hair to conceal the hair tie, pinning in place under the ponytail with a kirby grip.
How will you wear yours?
