Marie Robinson tells how to keep that pony colored

Ever since I started this whole exerciste nonsense this summer, and the institution of a heinous dress code policy at work, I now wear my hair up in a ponytail every day. Literally. The only times you will see it down is during our “It’s Just Lipstick” Spreecasts or if I have an event to go to.

So, these tips from celebrity colorist & Clairol Color Director, Marie Robinson, on how to achieve a perfectly colored ponytail are great for me, and hopefully you, too:

  • If you have highlights… make sure they are always fresh around the hairline. If highlights are a part of your fall/winter look, make your ponytail glamorous with a slightly bolder style (think Audrey Hepburn’s haute high bun hair ’do a la Breakfast at Tiffany’s).
  • If you’re a blonde… like a bright buttery blonde, then this hairstyle will look great in a ponytail against black or charcoal coats and clothing. Add a pop of color with a bright pink or royal blue satin ribbon to show off that blonde!
  • If you have dark hair… your hair can easily look shiny and rich. So, if the ponytail is your style of the season, try warming up your current shade. I love how Natural Instincts in Cinnaberry can make it shimmer even more.
  • If you’re a deep red or auburn… your hair color tends to fade quickly and grays can show fast when pulling your hair back. A simple trick is to use Nice ‘n Easy Root Touch-Up in Dark Auburn to make sure your hair line stays flawless. (*Ed note: This is *exactly* what I do.)
  • If your hair is natural in color or a dull brown… feel free to be a little adventurous with your ponytail. Try a trendy look this holiday season with ombre color! Dip your ends into pale blonde color (this is best left to a professional) and the lighter tips will show off your pony without commitment to color or changing your overall look around your face.

Do you guys wear a pony in winter? Or are you a throw it up in the summer or when I’m working out kind of gal?
