Summer Ponytails & Plaits

Summer Ponytails & Plaits



37Here comes summer!  With the approach of hot days and balmy evenings we reckon the ponytail is going to be one fashion statement you simply can’t resist!

We’ve already seen ponytails on the 2014 fashion catwalks (reft), vying for attention alongside the ever-fashionable plait or braid (right)!

Here at our Great Hairdressing salons across Kent and Sussex we’ve put together some of our favourite ponytail and braided hairstyles to give your some inspiration this summer.  We can recreate all of these hairstyles in our salons – or come up with something completely new just for you!

Why not book your hair appointment at Great Hairdressing now.

The low ponytail

The low ponytail should be worn low and tied at the nape of the neck.  Your hair needs to be in great condition for this style which looks best if it is sleek, straight.and with a blunt edge. Take your ponytail from day to evening with a well placed accessory.  Flowers, hair bands, bejewelled clips and pretty hair bands can freshen up your look and add a bit of glamour.

The vintage ponytail

Add some height to your ponytail and pull out some tendrils for a vintage ‘Brigitte Bardot’ hairstyle. Victoria Beckham manages her ponytail with sophistication, while Kate Beckinsale opts for a quick and easy ponytail with volume on top.

Intricate plaits and braids

We can create the most intricate of plaited hairstyles for parties, weddings and special occasions.  Come in and talk to us about your event and the look you’d like to achieve and let us do the rest.

Side braids & ponytails

Have some fun with your braid or ponytail.  Try creating a fishtail plait or a halo braid or simply plait it low and to the side.  A side ponytail or plait looks effortlessly stylish whether you’re off to the beach, heading to a festival or out to dinner with friends.
