When it comes to a high-impact ponytail, part choice is key. A sleek center part coupled with a low-slung style skews contemporary, while a brushed-back updo can go sporty or chic. But a sweeping side-part? That's cooly dramatic. The point was proven yesterday by Zendaya, who readied for the launch of Lanc?me's Id?le fragrance in New York City by raking her brunette lengths into a nape-of-the-neck ponytail defined by its deep side-part.
Styled just loose enough to feel romantic, with escapist tendrils at the ears and piece-y strands veering across the forehead, the actress's updo was equal parts sophisticated and playful, ideal for an evening out. A luminous complexion adorned in tawny neutrals, lips glossed in pinkish nude, a swirl of bronzer on the cheeks, eyes lined in onyx, a touch of metallic at the inner corners offering further brightness. Looking to take your tie-back to the next level? A side-part may be the quickest route.
