We've seen pony hair on footwear in small doses already, but come Fall, there's way more pony hair shoe flair in store. This time, look for pony and calf hair taking over on flats, loafers, and boots, a la Phillip Lim's new Fall footwear. Don't fear a little pony fringe, it's just another way to texturize. We love how it furthers interest in a leopard print and adds another dimension to lace-up boots or clogs. It's sophisticated with just a little free-spirited fashion fun.
Welcome to the second installment of my makeup brush hair types series. Today's topic is pony hair. It's the most common type of hair in fluffy cheek, contour and powder brushes where dense color deposits are needed.
Like goat hair, pony hair does not come to a point — another great reason to use it on cheeks, because the bristles lend themselves well to blending.
Pony hair is a little bit less coarse than goat hair, though. It comes from the mane of young horses and is very fine and soft. In the finest quality of brushes, the hair comes from the belly of the pony.
As you can see in this Make Up Forever Blush Brush ($38) the brush is a cylindrical shape. Stay tuned for more makeup brush hair types all week long!
