High Pony Look

HOW TO STYLE THE HIGH PONY FROM NYFW

Fashion designer LaQuan Smith brought sexy back to his New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2022 runway. LaQuan—known for his creative approach to structuring feminine and form-fitting ensembles—asked Unilever Global Stylist and celebrity hairstylist Lacy Redway to create select hairstyles that played up each runway model’s unique hair texture.

One of our favourite hairstyles by Lacy was this High Pony that is runway ready yet practical enough for every day. Inspired by LaQuan’s innovative vision and sleek aesthetic, Lacy led a team of hairstylists to create this glossy, slicked back High Pony with sculpted baby hairs laid around the crown. The best part? You can style this pony to play up your natural hair type and make this chic hairstyle totally ownable.

To create this look at home, here are the TRESemmé products you’ll need:

·       Extra Hold Mousse

·       One Step Smoothing Cream

·       Extra Hold Hair Spray

·       Keratin Smooth Shine Serum

For all required products, please follow the directions and instructions as listed on the back-of-pack.

“I wanted to merge a traditional, wavy hairstyle with a modern twist of baby hairs for the LaQuan Smith show. The sleekness in his clothing aesthetic, along with the variety of fabrics and textures he uses inspired me to create this look. It's a mixture of components of some classics we have seen in the past but modernizing it for the LaQuan Smith woman who sits on top of the world in her mind, as we do on one of the highest buildings in Manhattan.”

  • 01
    Refresh hair with TRESemmé Between Washes Dry Shampoo at the roots, then massage and brush into hair.

    STEP 1:

    Start by applying Extra Hold Mousse followed by the One Step Smoothing Cream throughout dry hair to help define the natural texture of the hair.

  • 02
    Create a centre part and split hair down the middle.

    STEP 2:

    Once product is applied throughout the hair, rough dry hair while adding a two-strand twist throughout to further enhance texture.

  • 03
    Add elastics to make two pigtails.

    STEP 3:

    Once completely dry, spray Extra Hold Hair Spray on a flat brush and scoop the hair into a ponytail, securing with an elastic.

  • 04
    Add another elastic a couple inches down from the first elastic, then split the hair between the elastics and loop the hair through.

    STEP 4:

    Take a small strand from underneath the ponytail, spray it with Extra Hold Hair Spray and wrap it around the elastic to conceal the elastic with the strand.

  • 05
    Use your fingers to loosen and pull apart the hair, then repeat through the remaining length of the ponytails.

    STEP 5:

    For added shine, apply Keratin Smooth Shine Serum on the ponytail.
