weekend hair: THE KNOT PONYTAIL

LOVING THIS PONYTAIL @ ANTONIO MARRAS' A/W 12 SHOW...
 The look, created by Eugene Souleiman, Global Creative Director, Care & Styling, Wella Professionals, was borne out of necessity as a light touch to counteract the beautiful rich collection. 

“Antonio always has a strong narrative to his collections, like a beautiful dream, and I wanted to extend this dream like quality to the hair look. I wanted the hair to feel romantic, light and almost as if it was styled by nature, with a textured quality to it” said Eugene. “There was also a slight Asian feeling to the collection with a classic Asian color palette of black, red and gold, which gave the hair a slightly ‘geisha’ feel” Eugene added. 

COPY-CAT THE LOOK:
• Start with freshly washed and conditioned hair using Wella Professionals Enrich Shampoo and Conditioner. 

• Roughly dry the hair with a blow dryer and spray Wella Professionals Ocean Spritz in to the roots and dry backwards away from the face – the Ocean Spritz takes away any remaining moisture in the hair and makes it light and fluffy with a ‘fly away’ feel. 


• Next, run straightening irons through the length of the hair to create an almost static feel to the hair. 

• Allow the hair to fall in to a natural centre parting, then brush back and tie in to a loose ponytail with elastic. 

• Once tied, let the ponytail drop a little to form a ‘baggy’ underneath section. 

• Twist the ponytail and wrap it around itself, tying it into a knot, pulling the remaining hair through the knot, and pinning the knot into place. 

• Massage the ends of the knot with fingers to add a little lightness the blow the hair forwards with the dryer from the back of the head towards the front – while at the same time spray in the direction of the air with Wella Professionals Stay Styled Hairspray. 

• For the show, Eugene finished off with a light spray of gold hair color spray around the front of the face to give a little luminescence under the show lights.

{Perfection for the weekend!}
