You can always count on Chanel to up the ante on a classic. Just take its spring/summer 2021 show at Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday, where the humble ponytail was given a thoroughly French ¨C and chic ¨C twist.
The look, which saw models¡¯ hair pulled back into low-slung ponytails; their deep side-partings secured with subtle slides and strands of hair pulled haphazardly over ears, was a cool-girl take on an everyday classic.

The devil is in the detail, of course, and since it wouldn¡¯t be very French to appear too considered, hair was given a soft, mussed-up texture through the back and sides ¨C flyaways included. Meanwhile, ends were treated to a gentle wave with curling tongs, for just a touch of polish.
In fact, this is perfect working-from-home hair: it will look as good on a (rare) evening out as it does on a trip to the shops. It¡¯s loose, carefree, and you can do it yourself with little more than a hair tie and a kirby grip ¨C or up the ante with a Chanel accessory.
