James Brown, a top designer for the hair-product company GHD (which stands for good hair day), showcased this single mini ponytail on the fashion runways. In its minimalist simplicity, the look is the paradigm of unfussy-hip. The inventive ponytail was fashioned by sectioning off a small portion of hair, starting at the crown, and secured just at the midpoint of the ear with a clear, flat plastic band. The hair was gently straightened using GHD's flat iron. GHD products are available at 877-GHD-ANGEL or GHDHair.com.
