THE SLEEK PONYTAIL

If you only think to tie your hair up when at the gym then this chic and simply look is sure to make you think again. Fit for any evening excursion this truly elegant look adorned the heads of models on the Emilia Wickstead catwalk thanks to Lead Stylist, Benjamin Muller. This look is all about the blunt cut that adds impact and body to the pony, call in and talk to one of our stylists about recreating this look and don’t forget to finish with a bow on top.

STEP BY STEP

1. Start with clean hair, washing with Smooth Infusion Shampoo and Smooth Infusion Conditioner and rough drying the hair quickly to remove most of the moisture.

2. Apply Thickening Tonic from the hair line to the mid-lengths of the hair and using a Paddle Brush blow-dry the hairline back taking large sections to smooth and straighten.

3. Using a brush, pull the hair back into a high ponytail securing with a hair tie, concealing with a piece of hair and pin.

4. Using a hair straightener, smooth hair into a clean straight ponytail.

5. Add one further hair tie in the mid length of the ponytail and add in large bows, pinning securely into place

6. Finish by spraying Air Control Hairspray along the hair line, running fingers over to create a wisp-free, smoother finish.

THE SILKY WAVE

Romantic wavy hair always looks the part and was the style of choice for most runways this season, including at Mother of Pearl. This look from Declan Shiels was inspired by the flawlessly coiffed ladies of Rodeo Drive. Creating the perfect tousled hair is not just down to expert brush work. To get this glamourous gleam then opt for an Instant Shine Treatment as an add-on to your blow dry service and this silky look will be all yours.

STEP BY STEP

1. For curly hair begin prepping with Light Elements Smoothing Fluid and Smooth Infusion Style Prep. For straight hair prep with Thickening Tonic. Blow Dry with a large round brush in bulky sections.

2. Create a low side parting to the right hand side of the head, setting sections of the hair with medium curling tongs. Working away from the parting horizontally, finish with Air Control Hairspray and pin if required.

3. Wait till the set has cooled, gently brush out, and tousle with the fingers to create a front wave, setting in place with Air Control Hairspray.

THE EMBELLISHED UP-DO

Clips, slides and barrettes are the trend of the moment that is set to stay. But coming up with inventive ways to add in your favourite hair accessories can be tricky. That’s where the expert stylists at the Beauty Lounge come in. Look to the Shrimps catwalk and the boho braids style reimagined with a modern twist by Syd Hayes. The hair colour de jour for blondes sits somewhere between blonde and brunette. If you are not fortunate enough to have this colour naturally it can be easily achieved through lightening or darkening, talk to one of our colour specialists on how you can recreate.

STEP BY STEP

1. Begin by prepping the hair with Volumising Tonic through the roots and ends, making sure to add Texture Tonic to the ends especially to add grip

2. Blow dry the hair till completely dry.

3. Taking a low side parting, split two to three sections of the hair around the sides into three equal parts, plaiting ideally upside down, securing with pins around the crown area of the head in a circular figure

4. Finish with Air Control Hairspray to tidy any flyaways and attach a decorative accessory where possible.
