Sleek high ponytails have been seen at Donna Karan, Nicol Farhi, and Monique Lhuillier Spring/Summer 2012 fashion shows. To achieve the look hair must be perfectly sleek while the tail can be teased to look more voluminous. The ponytails at Donna Karan featured super sleeked almost wet look hair that was fixed in a high loose ponytail.
Ponytails can be worn both on a daily basis and for the night out. Tease or decorate the ponytail to glam it up for a special occasion, we opted for a black leather style wrap when shooting our Autumn / Winter 2011 trends. To achieve this gorgeous wearable look, follow these steps.
- Dampen your hair and spray your whole head liberally with any good gel hair product. You may prefer to use a styling spray or gel. You can also create this ponytail with wet hair, letting it air dry after your hair is in the ponytail. We Suggest: Trying L’Oreal X-TENSO MOISTURIST for an extra sleek look and a very strong hold.
- Use a smooth wide-toothed comb or smooth pick to smooth and untangle the hair.
- Secure your hair in a firm, but not overly tight, ponytail in a “hair friendly” elastic band such as a Blax, Bungee or similar.
Note: It is best not to pull the hair too tightly into the ponytail. If the ponytail is too tight you may experience a slight headache. Long term wearing of tight ponytails can actually encourage hair loss in some circumstances.
- Spray with a strong hair spray. If you have bangs, you can slick them back, to the side or spiked up.
