PONY TALES

NOTH­ING SAYS EASY CHIC QUITE LIKE A LOW-SLUNG PONY­TAIL.

CLEO (Malaysia) - - MANE ISSUE -

Sim­ple yet so­phis­ti­cated, the pony­tail is an ubiq­ui­tous part of any run­way sea­son. This sea­son, off­set­ting the ex­trav­a­gance of the ap­parel on dis­play, the pony­tail has three things in com­mon – shine, sim­plic­ity and sleek­ness. Most im­por­tantly, this sea­son’s pony ny rides low, hang­ing off the napes of mod­els’ necks.

PONY STYLE

At Michael Kors and Jil Sander, min­i­mal­ist­ni­mal­ist pony­tails were given a mir­ror-like shine. So easy to recre­ate, Red­ken cre­ative con­sul­tant Guido Palau achieved this at Jil Sander with the use of a ther­mal spray on the tail, flat-iron­ing, and fin­ish­ing off with a glis­ten­ing mist. At Lan­vin, punk met with Parisian chic as low pony­tails were given some tex­ture while main­tain­ing bril­liance. “It’s a mod­ern style, as if the girls had done it them­selves,” says Palau. Good news for us with­out an ex­pert hair­styl­ist on speed dial! To up the class fac­tor, wrap a small sec­tion of hair around the elas­tic.

PONY FEMME

If you want some­thing less sporty and more girly, look to DSquared2. “From the front, the hair looked mas­cu­line, but as the model turned around, a very fem­i­nine pony tail was re­vealed,” says Samm McMcKnight, Pan­tene Pro-V Global Stylist Am­bas­sador. For a wavy, glossy pony­tail,ny­tail, ap­ply mousse then blow-dry your hair be­fore us­ing a tong to cre­ate loos­ese waves. “This will make it eas­ier to fix into a pony­tail, and will leave it with a glam­orous­lam­orous wave, while the heat from the tongs will give your hair plenty of shine.e. If you find tongs hard to use, try us­ing heated ed curlers,” adds McKnight. To achieve the look, there’s plenty of tug­ging andd blow-dry­ing in­volved. But the end re­sult should be an haute mane, not hot hair. Give hair spe­cial care tto pre­vent it from be­com­ing lack­lus­tre and brit­tle. We love Percy & Reed’s Heat Pro­tect Styling Mist that coat­sats locks with a con­di­tion­ing gloss to keep hair cool. A ther­mal brush like the one from Ecofrens has a vented ce­ramic bar­rel for more ef­fi­cient heat styling, mean­ing less heat ex­po­sure.
