PONYTAILS ON PARADE

I’M LOVING ALL THE BACKSTAGE INFO I’M BEEN SENT FROM FASHION WEEK

here’s the latest instalment {featuring one of my fave hairstyles, the messy ponytail}…


The Show: Mary Katrantzou, Spring/Summer 2012
The Designer Inspiration: Nature vs. Nurture
The Hair Look: Urban Flowerchild

The backstage scene at Mary Katrantzou, with girls wafting about like exotic creatures in Mary’s vividly coloured floral and underwater photographic prints provided the perfect inspiration for the hair look this season.

The show theme: Nature vs. Nurture, which prompted Pantene Pro-V Global Ambassador Sam McKnight to create a naïve, childlike, floaty style that tapped into the colourful, floral, watery mood. “When we saw Mary’s collection we knew that with such rich detail, it was important to keep the hair simple,” says Sam who devised a low ponytail tail (a key trend this season) with hair all around the hairline left loose so that it floated as the girls walked. “The lighting on the catwalk is daylight,” says Sam, “So we wanted to create this light, halo-like effect with the hair.”

Get the Look: Key to the look is freshly washed and conditioned hair to bring out the shine and brilliance of each girl’s coloured hair. Sam’s team used Pantene Pro-V Colour Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner to achieve a perfectly clean, healthy looking base before blow drying. Next, Sam misted over Pantene Pro-V Stay Smooth Hairspray to provide ‘bite’ to prevent the hair from being too slippery, then gathered the volume into a ponytail, held low on the nape of the neck, ensuring that a fine veil of hair around the hairline was left loose. “I used my hands rather than a brush for this look to keep the texture of the finish natural,” says Sam. A light mist of Pantene Pro-V Stay Smooth Hairspray held the style in place without weighing it down.
