A Practical Ponytail

I'm all for the practical and when fashion meets function - or, in this case, when function meets fashion. Putting your hair up in a high ponytail or messy bun doesn't necessarily have to represent laziness. There are plenty of days when my hair is limp and a little on the oily side, or just isn't falling into the right places. My go-to alternative typically consists of a hat or a quickly-done bun. So, if I'm able to "do it up" and transform an otherwise bland look into a more embellished one, you can definitely count me in.

A couple of years ago, I was introduced to IVChic, a line of hair jewelry for the fashionably conscious. What I love most about the line is how so many of the hair pieces are dual-purpose, serving as arm candy as well. From edgy to classic to a little more boho, there are plenty of styles to fit yours - personally, I love the Austin wrap, because there are so many ways to wear it. It can be be used to secure a ponytail (see below!), weaved into a braid or just worn as a wrap around your arm.
