Can’t bear the heat and humidity any longer? While we all wish we could always let our hair down without that sticky feeling, or having hair plastered to our necks and faces, we can’t change the weather. Here’s a simple way to beat the heat and still look chic – put your hair up in a ponytail!
When it comes to a ponytail, a good rule of thumb is drawing an invisible line from the corner of your eye, following the angle of your lower lash line up to the back of your head. The final point is how high you should tie your ponytail for the most flattering, slimming look. It makes your face look lifted as well.
Of course, that might not work for all face shapes, especially if the top half of your head is wider and you do nothing to balance that with your fringe. And sometimes, we simply want a less polished hairstyle to suit a casual ensemble.
For days when you simply want fuss-free hairdos or the most flattering ponytail for your face shape, here are some basic guidelines:
If you’ve got an oval face shape, count yourself lucky. There’s a lot more room to play, with most hairstyles looking great on you. You can most definitely rock that slicked back pony; just avoid tying it too high up so your face doesn’t look too ‘stretched’.
