The First Lady Michelle Obama is holding her title for being a fashion icon. For this whole month of August, she’s been photo’d relaxed and wearing one of the top Fall 2009-2010 hair trends, the chignon ponytail.
The ponytail is such a common hairstyle, one that many people wear on any given occasion, it’s almost hard to say that it’s being worn because it’s a current trend. So, for those who do wear them on a regular basis, it’s safe to say that you can now wear them without feeling guilty for not styling your hair.
The world watches hard, both critically and in admiration, on what Michelle wears and how she styles her hair. I’m surprised that there’s not a great debate going on about whether or not her ponytail is appropriate. If you haven’t noticed, her daughter Sasha is wearing one also.
1) Pull the hair back into a low base ponytail, 2) twist the hair of the ponytail, 3) wrap the twisted hair around the ponytail holder and secure with pins. For a younger look, let ends stick out.
The braided updo is another classic Fall 2009 ponytail trend – see which celebrities are wearing them, and how you can achieve one by starting here.
