High Ponytails Are Out
Ariana Grande made the high ponytail trendy, but we’re saying “thank you, next” after New York Fashion Week 2019. Low ponytails captured the buzz – and our attention – and we’re here for it. Low ponytails are versatile while capturing stylistic simplicity. They work with almost any outfit whether you have straight, wavy, or curly locks. And because most low ponytails are styled loosely, you can probably kiss ponytail headaches goodbye. Check this cute look out!

Hair Accessories…So In Right Now!
No outfit is complete without the perfect accessory. Well, the same goes for your hairstyling! Or, better yet, days when you don’t actually feel like styling. A sweet headpiece or accessory is the perfect thing for those days when you’re running around town from the bank to the supermarket, but still want to look cute. The runways and sidewalks of New York were peppered with girls rocking simple buns or straight, layered styles with their looks complemented by head scarves and bandanas.
