Sophisticate’s Blog:         Pretty Pony


image004image006

Ponytails are always a favorite way to wear our hair, so when we see a particularly cute version, we just have to share…

This pony was created by Global Creative Director for Wella Professionals, Eugene Souleiman, along with his talented team, for the Ports 1961 AW’13 runway show. “I wanted to create something very considered but effortless and elegant,” shared the hairdresser.

The finished hair look was the sum of two parts, with a low side parting swept across the forehead to give a puritanical feeling to the look, yet at the back of the head was a flash of elegance in the form of a mini reverse French pleat. “This is more hair design than hair styling,” added Souleiman.

1. Spray hair with a smoothing balm and blow-dry with a flat brush, keeping the hair flat and smooth.

2. Make a low side parting and sweep the hair across the forehead and over the ear; secure half the hair in a low pony tail at the nape of the neck, using a covered elastic to secure. Use a soft bristle brush and Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray as you style to keep the hair smooth.

4. Take the remaining hair and fold into a reverse French pleat, rolling down towards the ponytail, securing the bottom of the pleat into the ponytail and securing with a covered elastic.

5. Spray the hair with Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing spray to keep the style in place. Secure the pleat with hair pins if needed.
