Reese’s Perfect Pony

Spotted! A new hair trend on the red carpet at the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards this past weekend: the low ponytail. A few celebs were scene rocking this chic and easy style, including Reese Witherspoon. Here, celebrity hairstylist Adir Abergel shares the step-by-step for how he created the glam low pony, and how you can, too…

    • Create a severe side part on towel-dried hair and and apply a frizz-fighter (Abergel used John Frieda Frizz Ease Beyond Smooth Frizz-Immunity Primer), followed by a volumizing mousse.
    • Blow-dry hair with a round brush, then use a 1 ¼” curling iron to curl hair into bouncy, soft curls.
    • With the help of John Frieda Frizz Ease Clearly Defined Holding Gel, pull hair back into a sleek, low side ponytail, securing with an elastic band. To hide the band, wrap a lock of hair from the ponytail around it and secure with a few hairpins.
    • To finish the look, use a paddle brush to smooth out the ponytail and spritz with flexible hold hairspray.

KIMBERLY IS MARRIED! A NEW POST FROM SOPHISTICATE’S STAR BEAUTY BLOGGER

Coming soon in Sophisticate’s Hairstyle Guide, you can get the whole scoop on my New Year’s Eve Great Gatsby inspired wedding hair for my big day!

But first, let’s cover my Farrah Fawcett rehearsal dinner do! If you have been a bride, then you understand the chaos in the few days leading up to it all. I was my own wedding planner because, I’ll be honest, I like things the way I like things. Also, because I am just a creative person and what better way than your own wedding to really dive in and expand your mind!

Lucky for me, Klorane donated travel-size dry shampoos to put in all of the guest gift bags so I gave it a try. Wow!!! What a relief! The grease was gone and my hair was fuller than ever. I sprayed the mist on my roots and after a bit of teasing, I flipped my hair and spritzed for volume. I split my hair right down the middle with my comb and bumped up the crown of my head for drama. I took my Andis flat iron and flipped my ends up and away from my face. I popped on a fringe sequin blush short dress, some nude strappy heels, and a smokey eye with a pale lip and I was set.

My soon-to-be-hubby needed a quick freshen up after helping me slave away all day so he leaned on his Andis beard trimmer for that perfectly rugged Marlboro man edge. What a hunk. When we walked out to greet my loved ones to kick off our wedding weekend extravaganza, everyone was in awe of that ten minute mane I just polished up! Then the fun began! We danced all night and I definitely added a few hair flips in there because why the heck not!?! Thank you Klorane and Andis for helping me primp for my big weekend! What a blast!
