What do you think of the Pony Tail? There are many different incarnations of them, from being sleek to having natural texture. The Options are endless. One way I like to do the pony tail is a play on texture.
As seen in this picture Lets talk about the Products and Tool you can use to achieve this look.
Hair prepping - using Phyto Hair Care Wet Gel. First slightly mist your roots with water and apply sizable amount of Wet Gel to the palms of your hands. Carefully apply the Wet Gel to the roots of your hair and make sure you don’t apply to the mid-shafts or ends as we want it to be dry.
Second Step - take a boar hair bristle ( a Mason Pearson if you have) Brush and brush your hair in a high pony tail. Secure it with an elastic band.
Third Step - adding the Texture to the pony. I recommend the T3 Body Waver. It is a 1.75” barrel that will give you just the right amount of wave to make your hair Stand Out. Wrap half inch sections around the T3 body waver and hold for no more the 30 sec. When you complete the task of adding the waves to the pony. Lightly break up those wave lines to create and soft wave feel.
A few steps to changing your boring pony tail, to a fashion forward hair style.
As an editorial stylist sometimes we get perks, One of them is when I received the Amika’s 5P styler. Now Lets get some of the basic’s out of the way.
• 100% titanium barrels
• negative ions reduce frizz
• 150-430˚F digital adjustable temperature
• 16mm root lifter, 19, 25, 25-18 & 32mm barrels
• press and hold on/off switch
• includes a heat resistant glove
• dual voltage for world travel
• easy grip heat resistant surface
• 9 foot 360˚ swivel cord
Their is no real down fall of this styler. It’s a great way for any stylist to cut down on their kits, and not bring 5 different curling irons on set. So lets brake down the different sizes.
19mm = 3/4inch barrel
25mm = 1inch barrel
32mm = 1 1/4 inch barrel
25 to 18 mm is a unique size. It is larger at the base and becomes narrower towards the ends. This barrel will give your curl or waves a natural look, from keeping the curl off the base of the head not so tight.
16mm root lift - I don’t use this as a root lift but root control. This is perfect for taking care of tight curls from the nape of the neck to the front hair line.
A few different ways I like to use this curling iron is for Textured beach waves.
Or just for setting the hair to make it big
I also had this Styler with me back stage for NYFW at the Project Finale
So when making a choice for a new styler try the 5P it’s the work horse of curling irons.
