All done up; It's the hot hair style that's swept the catwalk - MARIE TURBILL gets to grips with perfecting the ponytail.


WITH blustery winds and endless rain showers it's no surprise that this season we are loving the ponytail.

And looking to the catwalk it seems we are not the only ones.

According to the experts, the easy updo is a key style for autumn/winter, and is even due to carry us into spring.

"It's a practical style that is ideal for this time of year," says Sylvia Dennison, owner of Middlesbrough's Chintz hairdressing salon.

At the same time it's a versatile look that can instantly transform your look.

"When you have longer hair you don't necessarily want to have it all cut off.

"But dressing it slightly differently is like getting a whole new outfit."

A styling classic the ponytail is ideal for endless reinvention.

Sylvia says: "For a simple look you can just sweep it back and secure with a band.

"Or for something a little more styled try adding volume with some heated rollers and a bit of back combing."

The golden rule, she says, is to always use a covered band to help protect the hair.

And: "Just have fun with your hair and don't be afraid to try something new."
