One thing we love about NYFW is its ability to take styles we are familiar with and elevate them to a level of high fashion. At Cushnie‘s F/W 19 show, we saw TRESemmé Global Stylist, Justine Marjan, take a simple low ponytail and turn it into an elegant tied pony. The hair tie for the ponytail? A piece of string.
This look was all about minimal product and making the hair as smooth and shiny as possible. Not only did this style look amazing on the runway, but it’s easily achievable at home! We’ve got the full tutorial on how to create this beautiful look, so read on:
Here’s How to Recreate the Elegant Tied Pony from Cushnie
Stylist Pro Tip: “For an extra sleek and smooth look, apply your hair spray to a toothbrush and brush down any pesky flyaways!” —Justine Marjan, TRESemmé Global Stylist
Step 1: Prep Hair by spritzing TRESemmé Thermal Creations Blow Dry Accelerator Spray throughout to protect tresses from heat styling.
Step 2: Blow dry hair straight with your choice of straightener and a boar bristle round brush.
Real Girl Tip: This style is all about making sure your hair is completely smooth and frizz free, so take your time when blow drying! Go slowly down each section of hair and turn your heat down to low.
Step 3: Flat iron thin, horizontal sections of hair from roots to ends.
Step 4: Use a small toothbrush or detailing brush to direct the hairline around the face. Use a brush to loosely gather hair at the nape of the next and tuck hair behind ears.
Step 5: Pull Hair into a low ponytail and use a piece of string to tie a knot and secure your elegant tied ponytail. The two pieces of string should lay on top of the hair, and be the length of the ponytail.
Step 7: Finish by misting TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hold Level 4: Extend Hair Spray all over for style without stiffness.
