Loud-mouthed rhyme spitter (and occupier of Miss Vogue Australia’s inaugural pages), Iggy Azalea doesn’t come without her faux pas. But one thing that’s always perfectly slick is her signature blonde ponytail – and unlike those skin-tight booty shorts, it’s something we’re not hesitant about trying.
Even if your hair isn’t platinum white and waist-length, a properly slicked-up and sophisticated ponytail is always a knockout look. See below for five styling products that’ll give you one perfect for working out, working in the office or heading out at night.
Add Strengthening Cream
Apply a leave-in cream to the tips and work your way up to the roots before blow-drying with a round or ionic brush. Kiehl's Stylist Series Heat Protective Silk Straightening Cream keeps your hair sleek and glossy until your next wash. $17 from Khiel's.
A frizz-control mousse can also work wonders if serums make your hair too slippery. Tigi S-Factor also do a Spun Satin styling souffle that gives moveable texture without the sticky feeling. $27.20 from Catwalk.
Boost the Roots
If you prefer a bit of volume at the roots, try Big Sexy Hair's flexibility-friendly Spray & Play Volumising Hairspray. $17.95 from Ultra.
After brushing hair into a high pony and securing with an elastic, take a piece of hair from the base of the ponytail and wrap it around to hide the elastic. Secure with a bobby pin then use an anti-frizz serum on the roots. Garnier's Sleek and Shine serum, $7.99 from Priceline, will do the trick.
Set with a finishing spray. Schwarzkopf Extra Care's Ultimate Keratin Hairspray offers 24-hour hold while nourishing the hair a little too. $6.99 from Beauty Heaven.
