Party season ponytail

As party season fast approaches it's time to start thinking about how your hair is going to look. It's easy to neglect your locks at this time of year, as your mind is preoccupied with bagging new outfits and mastering festive make-up trends, and your tresses can end up as an afterthought.

Instead of falling back on your usual everyday hairstyle, why not master a chic ponytail which will add glamour to any occasion.

"I always look to reinvent the classic ponytail for party season - it's a great look that will hold all day and it's a style that can suit anyone," Charles Worthington Brand Ambassador Ken O'Rourke told Cover Media.

"The key to a great ponytail is to ensure hair has been well looked after and nourished. The end result will be super sleek and shiny."

Here are Ken's tips for getting a perfect pony:

1. Curl hair with a large barrelled wand. Ken adds to make sure you apply a heat spray before styling to protect hair.

2. Separate a section of hair from the front of head and keep to one side. Backcomb the hair at the crown to add height, then pull hair into a high pony and secure with an elastic

3. Sweep the separated front section back and wrap around the base of the ponytail to hide the elastic. Secure with pins.

4. Finish with Charles Worthington Strength & Repair Hair Spray RRP £6.99, which helps to keep hair in place while strengthening from the outside in with its perfect blend of Argan Oil and Keratin. Moroccanoil's Luminous Hairspray Strong and L'Oréal Elnett Precious Oil are fab alternatives.
