Try This '60s-Inspired Low Ponytail When You're Tired Of Topknots

Switch up your weekday go-to hairstyle by trying this gorgeous, relaxed low pony, inspired by the ultra-chic '60s. Follow these simple steps to recreate the look.

If you're looking for a new hairstyle you can easily slip into your beauty routine, look no further than this ultra-chic, vintage-glam ponytail. It's simple enough to make the rounds during your typical workweek, but flirty enough for date night. All you need is a ponytail, some texturizing spray, a comb, and a curling iron. This look can be done on straight or wavy hair, and works best on medium to long hair lengths.

Follow these six steps:

'60s-Inspired Low Ponytail Steps 1 & 2

1. Prep hair for styling by using a texturizing spray. If you have fine, limp hair, a volumizing mousse can help add body. We used Kevin Murphy Hair Resort Resort Spray, $27.50.

2. Add a weightless oil to the ends of your hair to prevent frizz.

3. Comb hair into an extreme, low side part over the ear; almost so it looks like a comb over (except way better than an actual comb over).

4. Lightly backcomb the roots of the hair.

5. Pull your hair into a low ponytail. Leave the hair across your forehead loose for a windswept '60s look. Use an elastic band to secure the ponytail, and pull some pieces out around your face for a more casual feel.

6. Split the ponytail into three sections and curl each one using a large-barreled curling wand, then finger comb. Finish with a light mist of hairspray to hold.

And you're done! Pair this with a fun, fit and flare dress for a vibe that hold true to the '60's roots, or a long cardigan and ripped jeans for a sexy, surprising mix of old glamour and modern tastes.
