Will Taylor Swift perky ponytail win One Direction star Harry Styles's heart?

Picture the scene: you’ve got a hot date with Harry Styles. Congratulations.

The next thing you need to work out is how to have your hair.

Taylor Swift may have six Grammys to her name and be a red carpet pro, but for her Central Park date with One Direction‘s Harry, she chose to keep her look strictly girl-next-door.

Which is just as well because the dishevelled dip-dye look isn’t Harry‘s favourite anymore. Sorry Caroline.

Taylor left her glam team at home and sported a perky ponytail, teamed with a cosy jumper and winter layers to keep out the New York chill.

Meanwhile, Harry rocked his signature beanie hat.

Get Taylor‘s bouncy barnet with a Nicky Clarke NHS005 Compact Roller Set £16, allowing your hair to cool down, then whipping it up into a too-cool-to-care ponytail.
