pretty ponies

9f62d438637850b68f531785511aaa78I popped into J Crew the other day and spotted these pretty ponytail holders like the one below, which got me all inspired in the hair department, which ultimately led to Pinterest perusing, and finally to this post. I’m bad at doing my own hair. You? Mine is pretty wavy/curly and can get quite frizzy (especially if it’s humid, then I’m like Monica from Friends episode when they were in Hawaii!) so I tend to just put some sort of smoothing cream in it, air dry and hope for the best, or else I go to Dry Bar which is an expensive habit, but worth it to me since I can make it last a few days.

I wish I was the kind of girl who could do those amazing braids and interpret runway looks (like Amber), but unfortunately it’s just so not my thing. But ponytails! Ponytails I can get behind. There are a zillion tutorials out there, but I think I might just use that little J Crew thingie or play around myself to try to achieve one of these looks.

Thoughts? Are you into the fancy ponytail, or not so much?

    So pretty! I love these looks. My natural hair is incredibly curly so anything like this would just get lost because of all the texture, wish I could do these though.

    This makes me want longer hair again! I am terribly lazy when it comes to doing my hair and often find it in a ponytail.

    Love these inspirations! It’s great how a pony can really be dressed up or made messy and easily still look chic.

    Gorgeous! I’m the same way – my hair is either air-dried and down or up in some messy bun (but not the cute kind). I need some major help. Love the inspiration here!

    I’m really lazy when it comes to my hair! I usually just put it up in a bun or ponytail. I need to try one of these chic ponytail styles next time!
