Ken Paves is a renowned celebrity hairstylist who has worked with Jessica Simpson, Eva Longoria, Victoria Beckham and many more celebrities. He’s spilling on a hot hair trend — though it’s one that will never go out of style — below!
Ken told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY:
“Ponytails are one of my go to’s for many of my clients. I prefer an effortless looking ponytail worn with some volume through the crown and soft, slightly disheveled waves throughout. I usually ask my clients to air dry their hair so we can incorporate their natural texture into the look. This keeps it one of a kind!”
“Another way to approach ponytails is to keep a sleek, sophisticated look to them. For this look, you would create a deep side part. Apply a small amount of Ken Paves You Are Beautiful Repair & Nourish Shine Serum to your hair. Then use a Boar Bristle Brush or similar and sweep the hairline into place. Secure with a hooked elastic. Then you can take some ribbon in a similar color to your own and wrap it from the base of your ponytail down about 2 inches. This will add a very cool modern effect to it.”

When asked about different ponytails for different face shapes, Ken told me: “Ponytails look the best when the person wearing them is comfortable. For example, if you are typically uncomfortable with your hair away from your face, I recommend doing a loose side ponytail with some soft bits out along the hairline. I truly believe the most beautiful a woman can be is confident in herself!”
