How-To: Loose Ponytail

Mansur Gavriel hair by Bb.Global Artistic Director Laurent Philippon

Designer Direction/Hair Inspiration: “I love today’s look, it’s very sharp yet soft at the same time. We’re drawing a very straight center part and doing two types of looks: loose, lustrous hair and low ponytails. We’re doing extensions on a lot of the girls to be a little more dramatic, almost like creating a curtain of hair.” – Bb.Global Artistic Director Laurent Philippon
Styling Methods: Blow dry hair with Thickening Hairspray for root direction and to add volume. Create a graphic center part and brush hair as you flat iron to create maximum shine. Some models received low ponytails, where the elastic was covered with a grosgrain ribbon and secured with double sided tapes (no bows or knots). Finish with Dry Oil Finishing Spray to enhance shine and eliminate any flyaways.
