There are some runway look that are difficult to imagine wearing on a day-to-day basis while others seem easily accessible. The textured ponytail that celebrity stylist Justine Marjan created for Tanya Taylor’s SS18 New York Fashion Week show definitely falls into the wearable category. Learn how to create this textured ponytail using a few simple hairstyling hacks and rock this look seamlessly from day to night.
“The inspiration is an artsy Dutch girl so we’re just kind of pretending this is a girl that maybe hasn’t washed her hair in a couple of days, is maybe in the studio working, and just threw it back herself,” Marjan says. “We’re going for a very lived-in fuzzy texture to the hair. It’s an uneven messy middle part and then we’re using their natural hair texture and then just going in with a flat iron to add a kink to the hair on the top layer.”
Learn How to Create this Textured Ponytail
Step 1: Start by washing your hair with the TRESemmé Repair & Protect 7 Shampoo and the TRESemmé Repair & Protect 7 Conditioner. Spritz your damp hair the TRESemmé Repair & Protect 7 Pre-Styling Spray to protect your hair against breakage.
Step 2: Once your hair has dried, prep it with the TRESemmé TRES Two Hair Spray and comb through your hair.
Step 3: Create a messy center part.
Step 4: Use your hair straightener to create small bends through the top layer and roots of the hair for an overall messy texture.
Step 5: Spray your roots with the TRESemmé Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo.
Step 6: Use a toothbrush to back buck brush through the top layer of hair for a fuzzy texture.
Step 7: Use your fingers to pull your hair back into a loose low ponytail and secure it with an elastic.
Step 8: Wrap the base of the ponytail with a strand of hair and secure it with a small bobby pin. Spray the finished look with the TRESemmé TRES Two Hair Spray.
