Sleek & Low

Who doesn’t love a good ponytail?! Jenny Balding, Cutler/Redken Stylist shares one of her favorite ponytail, featuring a sleek and low vibe with tons of texture. “This look is easy to do yourself and doesn’t take long with a little ‘know how.’ It immediately gives you the glam effect with minimal effort,” says Balding. “The texture in the ponytail is key to this look as it creates a point of difference from just an ordinary low ponytail.” Here’s the how-to… 

  • Start with day-old hair, as it will be easier to manage and look better.
  • Create a low side-part on whichever side suits your face shape best. Mist hair with a light spray all over to smooth and eliminate any flyaways.
  • Gather your hair at the nape and secure it with a covered elastic into a low ponytail, making sure to keep the top area really smooth and sleek.  I love Cutler Flyaway Stick to use over the part and crown to create a sleek, beautiful sheen to the hair.
  • Take a small piece of hair from the under section of the ponytail and wrap it around the base to cover the elastic; pin in place.
  • Using a mini crimper, take small sections of the ponytail and crimp each section.  Mist a light hairspray on each section to give a little hold.
  • Brush hair through with boar bristle flat brush to create the perfect juxtaposition of the two textures—the sleek top and the textured, crimped tail.
