Ponytails have two extreme styles. A high ponytail that is right on the crown of your head or a low ponytail that is close to the nape of your neck. For spring 2013, low ponytails are one of the big hairstyle trends. There have been a lot of variations of hairstyles that sit at the nape of the neck, and one example is this low plait hairstyle from Karla Spetic spring 2013.
The inspiration behind Karla Spetic’s collection are traditional Croation costumes with lots of embroidery, lace, intricate beading and embellishments and to directly complement the clothes is the hairstyle created by ghd’s Sophie Roberts. She mentioned that the hairstyle pays tribute to the Croatian roots of Karla Spetic. The hairstyle is a loose, low slung plait with a centre part. “The look exudes a youthful, feminine and romantic essence” according to Roberts.
It is the kind of 2013 hairstyle that you can wear throughout the year and not just during the spring because it is simple and easy to recreate. The steps to doing this hairstyle yourself is right after the break.
