Ladies it's time to put down your styling tools. That's right you can pretty much put all your lotions, potions, brushes and tongs into a big bag to take to the Salvos because this summer the only hairstyle worth having needs nothing more than your humble hair elastic.
Well, ok, we might have fibbed a little, you might still want to hold onto your hairbrush and maybe the smallest whiff of hairspray, but seriously that's it.
And even better not only is this look super-easy and super-chic, it's also more versatile than a Swiss army knife. The new summer ponytail can be dressed up or down, worn at at pretty much any height (up-high and nape of the neck are our faves) and it can also be worn sleek and straight or beach-style messy.
Better hide the ink pots girls... well that's what our Nans would say anyway.
