While the preppy high ponytail has been making a name for itself with bouncy texture and soft waves, it’s important to remember that the effortlessly low ponytail is a close cousin of this trend. Once relegated to casual weekends, the sleek low pony has since returned to the catwalks and the sidewalks alike. If that wasn’t enough, it seems that this hairstyle is also a happening Hollywood look. Shifting away from stiff curls or strict updos, celebrities such as Karlie Kloss and Lily James have recently stepped out with their locks styled into low ponytails.
Taking the style to a glamorous new level, model Karlie Kloss stuns with this low ponytail knotted at the nape of her neck. The 24-year-old beauty wore her perfectly highlighted blond tresses in a long, straight pony. Her middle-parted hairstyle was complemented by flushed cheeks and defined eyeliner. Meanwhile, the slick ponytail brought the attention to her bone structure and naturally beautiful features.
Baby Driver star Lily James proves that the low ponytail can be surprisingly intricate. The 28-year-old actress embraces a series of knots and twists, all combined to form a ponytail. While we can appreciate the attention to detail and the eye-catching plaits, James’ smooth dark locks are finished off on a simple note. After all, her low ponytail contrasts against the knotted style and keeps her mane looking contemporary and fresh.
