My secrets to Ashley Graham's swinging ponytail
At the British Fashion Awards, I worked with the fabulous model Ashley Graham. We needed a hair look that suited Ashley’s classic All-American beauty, and that complemented her flowing Patrick McDowell dress which reminded me of something you’d see in a Slim Aaron's image from the 70s. So we opted for a retro S-shaped luminous ponytail. I created the volume by curling and backcombing Ashley’s hair until we ended up with a strong silhouette enhanced by her glorious smile.
Below are my tips on how to create a sleek ponytail for any occasion this holiday season.
Step 1: Dampen your roots and blow dry, brushing them back for a smooth ponytail
Step 2: Apply a little Self Control Gel to the hairline to smooth back flyaways for a super sleek finish
Step 3: Mist Modern Hairspray into your ponytail and wave with a curling tong.
Step 4: Define, defluff and defrizz your ponytail with Happy Endings
