Bring Back The Pony For Summer
The pastel colours of last summer’s hair have filtered down to the SS14 fashion cupboard, making this season’s minimal hair a framer for a wardrobe that does all the talking.
By: Regis Salons
Regis Salons’ creative team, The Edge, comments: “Ponys of all kinds were seen at the SS14 previews. From low and loose to extreme highs, there is an updo to suit every taste and outfit this season.
“Make sure your hair is in great condition first by using a hydrating shampoo and conditioner we recommend Wella SP Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner (£14-£17, Regis Salons) - to give it shine.
“The most striking look was the sleek pony at Victoria Beckham and Karen K, who favoured a sleek low ponytail allowing the clothes and accessories to take centre stage. But that isn’t to say hair must be plain, but rather classic and elegant.
“To recreate this look it is essential you straighten hair first, without forgetting to use a heat protecting spray Wella SP Resolute Lift (£17.10, Regis Salons). Rub some Wella SP Luxe Oil (£26.50, Regis Salons) between your palms and smooth the hair into a ponytail at the nape.
“This simple effortless look is the perfect accompaniment to the sports luxe trend of the season, but if you want to add an extra bit of interest, accessories such as an oversized bow, metal ring, or even a hairpiece that differs from your natural colour will make this bang on trend.
“If you want something a little edgier, then be sure to try the ‘double pony’. This can be done easily by straightening hair and running oil through as before, then part a triangle section at the crown and pull into a high, tight ponytail and tie with a hair elastic.
“Then take the rest of the hair, including the top ponytail, and pull into another ponytail in the middle of the head. Secure with SP Perfect Hold Hairspray (£14.20, Regis Salons).
“Certain outfits might call for a softer ponytail, in which case a ponytail with lots of volume is the way to go.
“Curl or wave hair if possible first, then start by backcombing the roots of your hair at the crown of your head, sectioning off inch sections with a tailcomb. Be careful not to backcomb the top layer as you will need it to smooth over the volume at the end.
“To create the ponytail, pull the hair to the nape of your neck, leaving an inch-piece at the bottom to disguise the hairband. Hide the backcombing with the top layer of hair, twist the remaining piece of hair around the tie, pinning into place, and finish off with a quality firm-hold hair spray, Wella SP Perfect Hold (£14.20 Regis Salons).
