As the high pony comes in I hear reports that heavy contour is heading out. Which makes absolute sense the more Gigi Hadid comes into the spotlight & sets the trends. Yes, when I think of the high pony, I think of Gigi. She didn’t invent it, just owns it right now, plain and simple.
I remember once in the late 90s or early 2000’s reading about where to place your ponytail to make your cheekbones pop and I’ve carried it with me forever. Although low ponies can be pretty they can also drag you down. If you want those cheek bones to pop you gotta hike that pony up a little further.
It’s like an instant lift.
I’m not sure heavy contour is literally going to ever go “out”, but I do think new trends are making this global Kardashian look appear a bit outdated.
The high pony is cute & low maintenance, it can be serious or fun and pulls everything up where it belongs.
So, why wouldn’t you give it a try?
One last thought..
Although “The higher the hair, the closer to God” may be true. There is such a thing as too high of a pony. The last thing you want to do is look like a purebred in show.
I’m sorry, but I did not feel Beyoncé’s 2015 MET pony. I couldn’t decide if she looked like a fortune telling fairy princess or the president of the Madonna fan club.
A good high pony should be angled according to your cheekbones more than on the top of your head. After all, unicorns are in right now and we still aren’t calling it “the unicorn”.
