Goodbye Topknot, Hello Low Ponytail: Fall’s Newest 3-Second Hairstyle

While the beauty spotlight has been shining on topknots and braids in recent seasons, the ever humble and easy-to-do ponytail is back and better than ever. From the hassle-free to the pumped up and pretty, the low ponytail is amongst the hairstyles to master for your autumn beauty repertoire, though not any ol' tail will do. Worn positioned at the nape of the neck or lower this season, this tail trend is low-maintenance and a throw-together-on-your-way-out style that still scores major style points. With that foundation, there are many ways to wear it.

On the fall runways, designers stuck to three main ponytail styles: the messy, the slick and the voluminous. Whether you opt for the bouncy 50s ponytail, the futuristic elongated tail or the undone, bed-head 'do, the simple low ponytail is shaping up to be the style of choice for the season. If you're lacking hair inspiration, browse through these haute tails to make a true testament to timeless style.
