Simplistic ponytails let Nabil Nayla’s Elizabethan-inspired collection (and eccentric choice of make-up) do all the talking at this LFW spring/summer 2019 show. A sleek, simple ponytail looked effortless and non-descript, yet the addition of lightly backcombed roots – a bid to create a modern day version of Queen Elizabeth I’s bouffant – added a hint of regal drama.
Get the look: Spray Revlon Professional Style Masters Hairspray No.3 lightly into the hair to build body and hold throughout,
before lightly backcombing the top section. Pull back into a tight pony, and then smooth through the ends with a light serum. Create a contrasting texture through the roots by lightly rubbing against the direction of the hair, to create that tell-tale halo of fuzz. Permanent marker scribbles on face, optional!
Insider tip: Ponytails are an incredibly powerful style, with the ability to steal the show and take a backseat, all at the same time.
These particular ponytails did exactly that. The key is to create a chic, simple pony, and then inject a little edge with an unexpected feature, such as the backcombed roots and soft-focus halo effect created here.
Revlon Professional UniqOne is one of those multi-functioning, do-anything products that just couldn’t get any better.
With a heap of uses – from repairing dry locks and adding fullness to fine locks to making tangled hair more manageable – the endless benefits of this lust-have product hero have earned this spray a place in the kit bag of every celeb hairstylist worth their salt. It also has a refreshing, clean, crisp fragrance of Green Tea too – the perfect pick me up for those on the go.
INSIDER TIP: This look is a millennial nod to the roaring Twenties – not a direct copy of a 1920s trend – so keep the look modern by using your fingers to create a wave before blow-drying. The dry texture and imperfect wave will bring this style straight into Autumn/Winter ‘18.
