High or low, slick or loose, the simplest style of them all - the ponytail - is making a serious comeback. If you're thinking of wearing your hair up, a ponytail is a great in-between style to pull your hair off your face but look brilliant from the back. Pair it with a braid or hair accessory and you're on to a winner. Our top tip for the perfect pony? 'You need texture,' says beauty journalist Funmi Fetto. 'So, if you're starting with freshly washed hair – which can be too slippery to work with – simply add dry shampoo.' Ready to have a go?
