My hairdresser once said to me that when you tie your hair back every day, it's time for a change in hairstyle. Quite the opposite, today's ponytail can be stylish, chic and flattering. Whether you're trying to mimic a throwback to the 80's while rocking a high ponytail (without the banana clip), or a slicked back ballerina inspired 'do, there are various ways of wearing your hair off your face to compliment every face shape and age.
On my wedding day, I didn't want anything too harsh or "done" so I requested a loose and tousled variation of the ponytail and then secured the ends with pins.
As women age, I think subtle bangs are a softer approach to the ponytail than exposing your entire forehead.
