For years Croydon has had the unfortunate honour of being the birthplace of the much derided Croydon Facelift, a greasy slicked back pony tail associated with chavs and similar undesirables. Now it seems Croydon has made a comeback. The look was sported on the catwalk recently by the original Croydon girl, Kate Moss during a show for Louis Vuitton. Other celebs have followed suit including sexy socialite Kim Kardashian, supermodel and David Walliam’s more attractive half Lara Stone and Victoria’s Secret’s favourite Karolina Kurkova.
If you want to channel the new chic ponytail invest in some must have tools and products. Hair experts recommend hair is straightened first to eliminate frizz.

Finally brush your hair with a boar bristle brush and secure the ponytail tightly with a hairband for that tidy and sleek look.
