Beauty, How To

How To: Middle Part Low Ponytail

Is there a lazy long hair award? Because if there is, I should be the number one recipient. I have never been very creative or talented when it comes to styling my hair. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried a side braid and simply pulling my hair back into a bun is a huge ordeal in itself. Thankfully, my sister is outstanding in the beauty department. Every time I leave her house I look like a different person. I’ve been obsessing over low ponytails and buns lately so she taught me how to pull my hair back into a sleek, clean, middle part pony.  Sure, there’s nothing completely over the top about it, but this is the perfect hairstyle for long hair at the office. I feel so much more put together when I wear it and it works well with collared shirts.
