HOW-TO: THE HIGH GLOSS PONYTAIL

Two Ways To Rock The Look For A Night Out

Think wet-look hair is only for the runway? Today we show you a wearable version of the trend through two perfect ponytails; one sporty and high and one sophisticated and low.

Nothing beats a low, high shine ponytail when you want to look sophisticated for a night out. Keep the ends of the ponytail a little bit matte and tease them slightly for volume in order to create a dramatic, dual texture look.

If a middle part feels too severe, create a two-inch part and then brush the rest of hair back in order to soften the look and create volume in the crown.

THE PRODUCTS

As with the high ponytail, use the finishing spray to create texture and then finish with a shine-enhancing product. Use illuminating moisturizer on hair and skin, for a gorgeous all-over glow.

By keeping the crown of your ponytail shiny and slick and the length of it brushed out and  full, a high ponytail looks purposeful and polished enough for cocktails (and nothing like the one you rock in yoga class).

Instead of securing all of your hair in one ponytail, make two ponytails right on top of each other. This creates length, adds height and keeps hair secure all night long. To conceal the two elastics, wrap a section of hair around the outside and pin to secure.

THE PRODUCTS

Create structure and grip with hairspray while styling the ponytail. Finish by smoothing an anti-frizz serum or hair oil generously over the crown and lightly over the length of the ponytail.
