It’s not very often you see a hairstyle make its way down the NYFW runway that can actually be worn on an everyday basis. At the Oscar de la Renta FW20 show, the chic statement pony—a sleek low pony style—made its appearance and we could not be more excited about it! This style is so versatile because it works on literally any hair type, is easy to do, and can be worn for fancy and casual occasions.
“We created this look to be chic and elegant, but also powerful since the hair is pulled back and you cannot hide,” explained Odile Gilbert, TRESemmé NYFW Stylist. Keep scrolling to find out how you can achieve this runway-worthy chic statement pony, and no, you will not look like a found father.
The Chic Statement Pony is Your New Go-to Updo
Blow-Dry Hair for a Smooth, Chic Statement Pony
Start by blow-drying your hair straight and towards the back to achieve a chic statement pony. Make sure to prep your hair with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Boost Heat Protectant Spray. This spray will help prevent damage, smooth, and soften your hair while blow-drying it. Gilbert explained how this is the most important step when achieving this hairstyle every day because it’s so important to start with a smooth base.
Flat Iron Hair for Chic Statement Pony
Next, start straightening your hair in 3-inch sections. For a precise look, start flat ironing at the nap of your neck then move up working layer by layer.
After you have flat ironed a layer, set it in place with TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Level 4: Extend Hair Spray. This hair spray is a favorite among many NYFW stylists, and it’s also one of our go-to sprays too! We love this hair spray because it gives you a strong hold without making your hair feel stiff or crunchy.
Complete Your Chic Statement Pony
Once your hair is completely straight, pull it back into a chic statement pony and secure with a hair tie. Brush the ponytail to smooth it, and then apply TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum to add an extra sleek finish. Lastly, finish off the look with TRESemmé TRES TWO Extra Hold Hair Spray for additional hold.
