The Fuss-Free, Effortless Ponytail

No longer reserved for high school babysitters or anyone who plays sports the ponytail has recently popped up in more runway-worthy (Alexander Wang, Donna Karan) and red-carpet (Nicole Richie, Blake Lively) contexts.  What I love most about this hairstyle?  Is how you can wear it to the gym then later that evening to a five-star restaurant with your hubby.  All you’ll have to do is change your makeup (to a more night look) and outfit (obviously), throw on some perfume, and you ‘re out the door in 15 minutes!!!  These days the only thing that takes 15 minutes are for my kids to completely turn my perfectly, organized and immaculate home (while they are in camp that is) UPSIDE DOWN.  With no way to mess this look up, every woman can make a stylish ponytail without the help of a hairdresser.  “Done” hairstyles are so 1980s, thank goodness, because who has time for perfection when there’s shopping to be done, the kids to feed and the beach to walk on?  Check out my favorite ponytail looks below!!!
