2018 has arrived, and the "New Year, New Hair" hype is upon us. While many people have chopped off their locks or have gotten a color switch (check out Selena Gomez's platinum new 'do!), these are definitely not the only ways to switch up your look. For the ladies out there who aren't up for a salon appointment soon, why not welcome in a few tweaks to your usual hairstyle instead? For inspiration, Nadine Lustre recently toughened up her checkered separates with an upgraded ponytail.
With the help of hairstylist Renz Pangilinan, the actress' long dark waves were pulled up into an ultra-sleek, high ponytail, and instead of leaving it as it is, Pangilinan further braided the ponytail in sleek perfection, resulting to a hairstyle that's strong, feminine, and seductive.
If you currently have short hair, fret not — rely on hair extensions to add that dramatic length à la MEGA's December 2017 cover girl, Maja Salvador, who fiercely rocked a Rapunzel-esque braided ponytail. With every swish of this power updo, you're bound to catch anyone’s attention this year.
