Low ponytail hairstyles for 2013

Ponytails are a constant hairstyle – they’re never out. But so many hairstyles are built upon these evergreens, reinterpreting them into new and relevant styles.

From the hassle-free to the sumptuous, from the daytime to the evening, the low ponytail is amongst the hairstyles to master for your spring fashion repertoire. But not any low ponytail will suffice.

Low Pony Tail Hair Styles


We all know what a classic ponytail is: a hairstyle that gathers all your hair from the front and holds it altogether at the centre of the back of your head. With that as the foundation, there are many ways to style it. But, particularly spring, the styling of a ponytail is dominated by the ponytail. That is, itself, just what it suggests, a ponytail that is tied lower. Instead of everything being gathered at the centre of the head, the ponytail is gathered at the nape or lower.

Below you’ll find all the on-trend styles for the low ponytail.

Low ponytail with side part

Parting your hair in a different style to most other women (i.e. not the centre part) can work wonders. A small move of your hair’s parting to the left or right can quickly change a look.

Ultra low ponytail

Laid back and relaxed, the ultra low ponytail is a hairstyle that has an almost ethereal quality to it. This low ponytail styling is held together a few more inches below the nape than those styles highlighted above and it lets your hair hang loosely around your face, framing it.

This particular version is an ultra low ponytail that’s very straight and has a modern-yet-serene feel to it. While a statement, it’s not very hard to recreate. Here’s a basic how-to for making the ultra low ponytail your own

  1. Complete all your usual hair preparation from washing through to applying heat protectant sprays or anti-frizz serums, and then blow dry your hair straight.
  2. Create a centre part and then straighten your hair out even more using a flat hair iron.
  3. Gather your hair towards your nape without tucking it behind your ears.
  4. Secure your ponytail with an elastic and then slide the elastic down to about 2 inches from your nape.
  5. Apply any hair glistening spray to add some shine to your ultra low ponytail.
