It’s the end of the week, your hair hasn’t been washed since Sunday, you’ve already worn a hat, already done a messy bun, what now? I’ve got two words for you, high pony. Thats right, a high ponytail. Sounds like something you were forced to wear when you were on the cheer team in high school, right? Think again, high pony’s are back and chicer than ever. Celebrities have been sporting this style everywhere from the grocery store to the Met Gala, and you be should too!

Wearing your hair up instantly makes your entire look dressier and more put together. Pair a pony with a t-shirt and jeans for a simple yet stylish look. Another advantage to wearing this style is that it’s great for days when you’re in a rush and don’t have time to fully style or even wash your hair. No one will ever know you’ve got day seven hair piled on top of your head when you look that good.

Here’s how to get the look and the things you’ll need…
Style your hair. If you want your pony to have some added texture try wrapping a few pieces of hair loosely around a curling wand. If you’re opting for a sleeker look run a straightener over your strands to smooth them out.
Next take a boar bristle brush, flip your head upside down and start to gather your ponytail on the top of your head. Using the brush to smooth out any bumps.
Turn your head right side up and secure the hair with an elastic as tight as you can handle! (Bonus with this hairstyle is the instant face lift)
Final steps, for a casual look pull some pieces out to frame your face or for a more refined look tame your fly aways with a little hairspray or hair gel.
Viola! A quick classic hairstyle that anyone can pull off.
