Ponytails Get Professional
Sure, the runway may contain a lot of bizarre hairstyles that most people wouldn’t sport on a regular day. However, the runway is great when it comes to taking something plain and making it look intricate and beautiful (ie. ponytails!!)
As a professional, it is harder than it looks to create the perfect ponytail on someone. Don’t let it fool you! Products are essential for these runway looks. Whether you want a sleek finish or a messy, textured finish, there is a product for it all. If you/ your client has a lot of baby hair and you’re trying to create a slicked back ponytail; spray a small amount of hairspray around the hair line and comb all of the hair back tight, and then spraying again for security. If you’re creating a slicked back ponytail, using a rubber elastic will help to keep the hair in the ponytail tight and secure. (Sometimes a regular elastic will allow the hair to slip out and loosen). Try to avoid using rubber elastics if you’re going for a textured look because it can sometimes get caught in the hair, which is not pleasant! For finishing any ponytail style, spray/ apply a shine product! You will be surprised how much it can polish up your look! For a light shine, I would use Eufora’s Illuminate Shine Mist because it is very lightweight and it’s an excellent thermal defense product. For a dramatic, sleek, almost wet finish I would recommend Eufora’s Pure Polish Finishing Drops. It’s easy to glam up any ponytail with accessories, a couple of elastics or even leaving some hair tucked into the elastic almost creating a bun and letting the rest of the hair fan out around it. The possibilities are endless!
