New York Fashion Week Hair Stylist Secret: Placement is Key
A staple at every Fashion Week, the ponytail is often trickier than it may appear. The key to rocking this look outside the gym is choosing the right placement on your head, according to Bumble and bumble editorial hair stylist Neil Moodie, who perfected perky ponies backstage at Max Azria and low-slung styles at BCBG.
Get the look: For a playful, tomboy style, anchor your ponytail just below the crown (about 2-inches above your ear). If you prefer your ponytail pretty and polished, create a deep side part (use the center of the eye as your guide) and smooth hair into a low ponytail about ½-inch above the neckline. No matter where you place your ponytail, amp up shine and eliminate flyways by spraying hairspray directly on your brush before pulling hair into place.
