Ponytails are back in a big way right now, in various forms. One look that kept popping up during the Spring '14 Fashion Week season was sleek, straight and embellished with a cuff. The cuffs, too, came in all kinds of different shapes and sizes, making this one of the year's most interesting hair trends so far!

It's just possible that hair cuffs could have something of a 'moment', if not full-blown trend status, this summer, and maybe even beyond. So, we've come up with a few different ways to rock the look, whatever texture you have/want!


The most wearable look of the bunch is probably the first one in the slideshow above. Straight hair with a minimalist cuff creates an understated pony that can be worn with anything from overalls to a ball gown. To get the look, all you need to do is straighten your hair. To do this, blow-dry it with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream or flat iron with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray. Then, gather it back into a low pony, glide on your cuff and you're good to go!


Alternatively, you could go all-out with a fashion forward wet-look style... if you're feeling brave enough that is. For this, do the same as above, only finish with a minimal slight of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum on the top and sides of your head. This style works with every hair texture and also doubles as a great in-between washes style.

Make some waves

If you would prefer something with a little more texture, a cuff can work really well with wavy and curly hair, too! It's all about creating a contrast without overcomplicating your look. All you have to do is define your curls with Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse and a diffuser, or curl the lengths of your hair, before pulling it all back into a pony.


For a more laid back approach, you could also try a lightly tousled, wavy look. Think runway-style beachy waves and you can't go too far wrong. Spray your hair with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray and blow-dry in medium twisted sections. Finger-comb then tie back into a pony.
