How to Create the Perfect Party Ponytail

The classic ponytail is our go-to hairstyle for all hair types. Be it for a daytime or night time event, our humble pony will guarantee to get all eyes on you. 

Be fun, keep cool and add some glam.  

Here we have created a step by step method to have you styling your  hair like a pro. 

 

 Step 1:

Start with clean dry hair.   Shampoo and condition with your fave products. We have used Keune Care Line Keratin Smoothing shampoo and conditioner to strengthen & nourish the hair to make it smooth & frizz-free with a beautiful shine. Ideal for resistant & damaged hair, it features Keratin & Provitamin B5 to nourish & restore the hair’s moisture balance for added strength, shine & bounce, as well as Quat Complex to protect against breakage & flat iron styling.

Step 2: 

 Curl your hair using your hair straightener or your curling tong. Whichever is easier for you to create a soft curl. Section your hair into large sections starting at your nape and working to the top. 

Remeber to use a heat styling product to protect your hair against the heat from your styling tools. We have used  Keune Care Line Thermal Protection Spray with Wheat Protein, Quats and Provitamin B5: controls the moisture balance and improves the combability during thermal styling. Leaves the hair conditioned with shine, elasticity and has a flexible hold.

Step 3: 

Section your hair into 2 parts- top and bottom. These sections will create 2 ponytails. Your bottom pony creates the illusion of extra length and your top pony is the glam, creating movement and fullness. 

Take a piece of hair to wrap the top pony. Then starting with the bottom pony, backcomb or tease from the roots to around 5cm out at 45* angle. This technique will hold the volume in your party pony. 

Use some volume powder for texture and hold. We used Keune Volume Powder, this matte texturizing powder immediately gives you volume and strong root touch-ups with a spectacular backcomb effect.

Step 4 : 

Place your top pony over the bottom one. Using your fingers and maybe a little more dust to fluff up  both ponies together to create your extra long, voluminous party pony.

Hairpieces, Padding and Hair Extensions

Do you have fine hair or feel like you might need extra volume for the hair style you want to wear on your wedding day?

Bridal hair styling can be quite confusing for you as a client - you know what you would like but is your hair long enough or thick enough? Working with an experienced hair stylist, all these questions will be answered at your trial. There are a few different options which will enhance your style. The options that I choose to use are for special occasion and can create your desired look without damage to your hair. 

Clip-in extensions have been used for this style.

CLIP-IN HUMAN HAIR EXTENSIONS These hair extensions are designed to be removed after your special occasion with no damage to your natural hair. Designed to provide extra volume and maybe some added length. For the best results make sure that your extensions are human hair so that they may be colour matched and heat styled. Look for key words such as, double or triple remy - meaning silky or smooth in texture. Clip in extensions can be purchased in 18", 20" or 22" lengths. 

PADDING is used to create the illusion of having lots of hair when you may have finer hair- never fear padding is here! Placement of your padding will depend on where you would like to create your fullness in your upstyle. This is easy to use and very affordable and will make all the difference with your desired look. You may have or have used a padding called a 'donut'. These paddings have become extremely popular for clients to create the timeless ballerina bun. Your hairstylist will have variations of this style of padding to create a more enhanced version of your chosen upstyle. So whether it be a classic chignon, a ballerina inspired bun or to build volume in your romantic updo, padding is an excellent styling secret.

Padding has been used here to build the volume out in this style.

HAIRPIECE similar to the clip-in extensions, a hairpiece is a human hair piece that is added as one into your upstyle. If your dream style requires extra hair your stylist will colour match a piece to 'fill out' your own hair to create your desired look. It is still very important to use a quality piece so as not to see the difference between the piece and your natural hair.

At your trial you will be able to discuss this with your stylist to find out which of the three options will work better for you.
