Hey girls, Kimberly here and I'm currently trying to source some beauty inspiration for the upcoming Spring 2014 season that will be upon us before we know it! And upon doing so, I couldn't help but to take notice of a couple of trends that seemed to dominate the runways (whether bedazzled or woven): Plaits and Ponies.

No matter the length of your mane anyone can pull off a braided or pulled up 'do. But the essentials for doing so successfully, remain the same. You'll need a few hair pins, a couple of hair ties, a serum of your choice, brush and combs that'll pull the entire look together, and a unique accessory to add a little flair to the otherwise traditional 'do. Some of my favorite hair'cessories are pictured below. One thing I love about this plait and pony trend is it's effortless ability to transition from Fall to Spring! It's all in the way you execute it! For fall, I'll be rocking this trend with bold brows and bold lips whereas for Spring I'll be playing up neutral lips, maintaining dewy skin, and making sure to flaunt bronzed cheek bones!

Are you feeling the trend? And are you a Pony or Plait kinda girl?
