Fall Trend Alert: Polished Ponytails

The ponytail is a timeless hairstyle that can be worn in so many different ways: High or low, messy or neat, plain and simple or dressed up with accessories. According to trend experts, the chicest way to do this ‘do this season is pretty and polished. You can get the look by making sure your strands are extra smooth and shiny, so of course having the right products and tools is essential—which is why we included FEKKAI’s Shea Butter Intense Oil in our fall box.

What makes this style so conducive to the season? According to Frédéric Fekkai, celebrity hairstylist and brand founder, it makes the perfect counterpoint to summer’s beachy, undone hairstyles. “After the summer when hair has been freestyle and exposed to sun, sea, and salt water, ponytails are welcome to bring glossy, sleek, and polished styles to adapt with fall clothing and fashion,” he says. “It’s a perfect look from day to evening.”

Looking to create a polished ponytail of your own this fall? Fekkai offered us some sage advice, including how to give it boost with his bestseller from our latest curation. “Flip your hair upside down, spray a texturing/defining spray such as the Full Blown Volume Dry Texturizing Spray on your brush, and brush from roots to end,” he explains. “Then secure a tight high ponytail with a hair elastic band and use a small bundle of hair to wrap around the tail. Finish with the Shea Butter Intense Oil on ends and any place that needs some smoothing or to tame any frizz.”

Try this gorgeously scented, shine enhancing oil by grabbing one of our fall boxes before they sell out. In doing so, you’ll also unlock access to The Shoppe, where we feature hundreds of fashion, beauty, and more products for up to 60% off—including additional favorites from FEKKAI plus styling tools to help you perfect all your hairstyles this season and beyond.
