The Fashion Week Ponytail You’ll Be Dying to Wear

Love your Hairdo. Wrap Around Pony? At the Marchesa Spring 2012 Fashion Week show they took this look to another level. Read on for more info!

Here’s how:

“Create a deep side part at the top of the head; separate the front-side section for now. Pull the rest of the hair into a low ponytail and secure it with a hair elastic. Here’s where you’ll need the separate section of hair, as you’ll pull it back to conceal the hair elastic by wrapping it around. (Use a bobby pin to secure the hair if needed.)

Here’s the more complicated part. Divide the ponytail into two sections of equal size. Three inches below the knot, create a tight fishtail. (Learn from BellaSugar’s fishtail braid tutorial.) Secure the woven part of the hair with bobby pins, and keep every hair in place with hairspray — don’t worry about overspraying, since this hairstyle is meant to look sleek and shiny.

No, it’s not a five-minute endeavor, but with a little practice (and perhaps a friend to help), this can be one head-turning style.”
