Best Bet: A Sleeker Ponytail


Once relegated to bumming around one's apartment, the ponytail has emerged as a high-fashion do this season: from fall runway shows to magazine covers. But it takes some work to make the style look put-together rather than rolled-out-of-bed lazy. HerCut's new Ponytail Styling Lotion smoothes flyaways without making hair feel stiff or greasy — the common curse of hairspray and gel. A dab of the lightweight balm leaves locks soft, shiny, and sleek, so your ponytail looks more Fashion Week–ready than gym-ready.
