The bad girl that everybody loves to hate on Gossip Girl manages to get the glam on again. And we have to say, as much as we love to hate her, we almost can’t, because her style is just so darn pretty. Here she is going uber cas in a mustard yellow cardigan and grey scarf with a sleeked back ponytail and uber glam shades. Here Michelle is not exactly her former sexy vamp sinking her claws into the Upper East side of the city, but she is not exactly sending off the Christian Polyanna vibes any longer. What Michelle is doing with this ponytail is a great thing, as it shows that yes, even a second day hair day ponytail can look both sleek AND chic, whether you are taking it day or night.
This look is easy to accomplish, particularly since you are going to skip your shampoo and do this with second day hair. For your front section, take a fine tooth comb dipped in water, and create a razor sharp part about 2-3 inches long. Then, comb the remaining section on the back of your crown, and tease it lightly to give you a bit of height and volume at the back of your head.
Use your fine tooth comb to sleekly comb your sides to the back, gathering your back crown section together with your two sides. Secure at the nape of your neck with a clear elastic, and give the back section a spritz of extra hold hairspray. Sweep your bangs to the side in either direction of your part, however you feel most comfortable, and secure with a pin behind your ear.
Finish the look with a little spritzing of hair gloss, and you have yourself a super easy hairstyle that will look and stay great no matter WHERE you take it all day or all night. If you are still trying to figure out a way to make this look really work, add an eye popping accessory like Michelle has here with her scarf. Stunning.
