Giuliana’s Hot Ponytail How-To


E! Entertainment host Giuliana Rancic looked gorgeous on the red carpet with her extravagant long ponytail, which was created by Matrix Artistic Director and Celebrity Stylist Nick Stenson, using Matrix Style Link and Biolage R.A.W. “We wanted to do something that showed off the lines of her dress and didn’t compete with it,” shares Stenson. “The shape of the pony complimented the back of her dress perfectly.”

Here’s the step-by-step…

♦♦ On damp hair, apply Matrix Style Link Blowout Skinny Queen Smoothing Blowout Cream and blow-dry using a boar bristle round brush. Spray scalp area with Style Link Play Back Dry Shampoo to build volume and texture.

♦♦ Create a section at the top/front of the head and backcomb for volume. Gently gather hair at the crown and secure with pins to reinforce height. Spray with Style Link Style Fixer Finishing Hairspray to hold in place.

♦♦ Gather remaining hair into a ponytail and secure with a clear elastic. Take a strand from the ponytail, loop it around the elastic, and secure with pins. Knot the top half of the ponytail and secure with a clear elastic.

♦♦ Loosen strands from the knots to create a deconstructed, loose effect.

♦♦ Finish the look by spraying hair with Style Link Style Fixer Finishing Hairspray.
