Hairstyle How To: High Ponytail

We bet you have your hair tied back right now, don’t you? We know why too. To pull your hair back into a “I don’t really care” ponytail the first time a strand of hair touches your face, is like slipping into your comfy clothes after a day of work.

A ponytail is like an old pair of tracky pants, loose and comfortable and sure they look ok but you wouldn’t wear them out to a formal event.

But, that doesn’t mean all ponytails deserve to be dismissed as the “lazy woman’s hair style”. On the contrary, there are plenty of high-fashion, high-impact ways to wear a pony.

Simple, sleek ponytails are bang on-trend this season. Numerous celebrities have been rocking the high ponytail hairstyle of late and not just to go to the gym or for a morning coffee. Katy Perry is a regular red carpet high ponytail wearer, as is Gwyneth Paltrow, Resse Witherspoon not only wears a ponytail while wrangling her kids but also a coifed ponytail for awards events, Anna Kendrick has been seen on the red carpet with a gorgeous ponytail (above) and most recently, Beyonce at the 2015 Met Gala (below).

Take a cue from these celeb red carpet moments to upgrade your ponytail from gym staple to stunning style essential.


Of course, a coifed, polished ponytail takes a bit more work to achieve than a regular ponytail one would do to go to the gym or down to the shops. Fudge has come up with the perfect ponytail for stylish perfection using their fantastic range (of course!)

How do you take it from the default hairdo to a delightfully elevated hairstyle with wow factor? It’s quite easy if you know how.

1. Add some texture so the ponytail will stay in place. Try Fudge URBAN Powder Styler ($8.95).

2. Pull the hair upwards and secure in the middle of your head. The higher the better!

3. Tame flyaways and hold the look in place by using Fudge Skyscraper Hairspray ($11.95).

4. To finish off the look, add some Fudge Light Hed Ed Oil to the end of the ponytail to smooth it out ($19.95).

And voila! A simple, elegant and classic hairstyle that will work for a night out, work, dinner or lunch out.
