How to style the high pony from laquan smith’s nyfw ss22 runway show
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 favorite 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.

“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.”
