When date night comes around, many of us automatically assume that to make a lasting impression, we have to go all out. As such, we often try sporting the most intricate hairstyles we can find. But in fact, keeping it simple can have more of an impact than trying to achieve complex ‘dos – especially when you’re dealing with curly hair.

Instead, why not opt for a high ponytail? Playful, fun and flirty, a high pony is a great way to show off your curls, while keeping them out of your face!

Editor’s tip: For high-impact curls, try the Toni&Guy Prep Curl Defining Oil (£6.99*) to help smooth and condition your curly locks, as well as fight frizz, for improved definition and control. Credit: @hairbyjade_nz

If you’re heading out to meet your date straight from the office, then you’ll need a quick and easy hairstyle that looks far more put-together than it actually is. And we have just the thing: A side pony! Chic and stylish, with just the right amount of playful charm, the curly side pony is the perfectly simple, yet polished look that’ll take you straight from restaurant to bar.
