Rise of the ponytail hairstyle for fall 2013

Go back to high-school basics this season with a hairstyle that’s as easy to whip together as it is versatile: the ponytail. It was seen all over the runways for fall because it conveys laidback ease with a touch of ladylike class, modern androgyny or even rumpled angst – depending on the style.

Want pretty sass? Add twists, curls or sparkly hair accessories.
Looking for modern edge? Shine spray and a flat iron are your best friends.
Or if you have a carefree attitude, try salt spray, scrunching and a loose shape.
