High On Christina

Christina Aguilera wore a glamorous, sleek high-crown ponytail for the The Voice finale last week–a perfect look for the warm summer days coming up. Giannandrea, International Creative Director for Macadamia Professional, created the star’s high pony. “This look is all about modern sleekness, shine and an edgy effect, while also being playful and strong.” The mane pro tells us how to recreate the look on our own…

1. Start with wet hair and apply a blow-dry lotion (Christina’s hair was treated to Macadamia Professional Blow Dry Lotion) throughout the whole length to smooth and protect hair from the heat.

2. Blow-dry large sections very straight with a large round brush.

3. Brush all the hair upward to the top center of the crown. All the sides and back of the hair must be directed very tightly to the top center, and the front should be slightly softer and not as tight as the rest.

4. Pull hair into a ponytail and secure with a strong hair elastic.

5. Take a small section from the back bottom of the ponytail and mist hairspray (Macadamia Professional Flex Hold Shaping Hairspray was used for Christina) on the section to help the hair stay in place while wrapping around the base of the ponytail to cover the elastic band. Use straight pins all around while wrapping and smoothing it in place.

6. Lightly spray the top of the head with hairspray and gently run hands over the hair to smooth flyaways. Brush the ponytail and use spray to achieve the ultimate finish and shine for a glamourous look.
