Join the pony club

Good news, hair-fashion fans - this season's coiffure trends are simple and easy to follow. Not that we like to follow fashion, what with being trend setters and all. But anyway, the big news for hair this summer is the humble ponytail. Yep, all you need is an elastic and er, some hair...

If the whole 'hair up' thing leaves you confused and sad, well let Vogue be your guide. They tell us to, '...wear your pony low and loose if you're going for a mussed-up texture - as seen at Alexander Wang and Burberry. Avoid the My Little Pony Club-equestrian look by wearing a high ponytail in the centre of the head and no higher than the brow line, unless you're working it with an S&M twist like the girls at Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs. No exposed hairbands - wrap a piece of hair or a discreet strip of material around it to keep it covered. Play with textures and trimmings - see the Gucci models whose sleek 'tails were crimped and then adorned with feathers for a glam-boho Seventies feel.'

Got that? It's actually rocket science, you know...
