Trend Alert: The Low Ponytail Look

As a part of your physical characteristics, the style of your hair also contributes to the overall impression you want to give your guests. Today we bring, to all brides and bridesmaids, a style that’s stayed somewhat under the radar in recent years, resilient against the lack of attention its received compared to braids or elaborate up-dos: the low ponytail. And no, we promise you won’t look like someone who had a bad chop and has no clue how to get the hair of their face otherwise (speaking from personal experience here!)

The effortless look of a natural, tousled hair-wrapped ponytail not only exudes chill but also gives more opportunities to go loud and proud with one’s jewelry!

If you’ve got longer hair, we recommend going with big waves for volume, but one that’s more controlled than if you’d left your hair entirely down. Throw in a braid or two for added natural embellishment!

A major concept of the low ponytail is it’s intentional messy, what-the-heck appearance. But where do you even start in figuring out the styling process when it looks like this wonderful tumble of knots?

A straight low ponytail speaks to the clean-cut sophistication of modern times! Feel free to accessories with a single ribbon or hairpin to soften any unintended harshness.

Last but not least, there is always the option of accessorizing! Include a embellished headband, some floral accents; or, like our bride pictured above, make your style ‘berry’ beautiful with a blackberry crown!

We’d love to see how a low ponytail will look on you! Let us help create your ideal wedding stationary, and we will feature your trendy hairstyle in our weekly Real Wedding blog posts! Share and connect with us, The Dandelion Patch, on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter!
