Red Carpet Trend: Sleek, High Ponys at the 2016 Grammys

February 16, 2016 admin

The super sleek center-part and low pony has been seen all over the red carpet and runway, but at the Grammy’s, the high version of the super sleek style made its mark. Seen on stars like Chrissy Teigen, Kacey Musgraves and of course, Ariana Grande, GLAMSQUAD’s Giovanni Vaccaro shares his tips to get the super slick, tight, polished high pony.

—This look works best with a straight, day-old blowout. So, if you have naturally frizzy curls, starting with a full, finished blowout is key.
—Start by flat ironing your ‘day old blowout’ with a wide toothed comb to make it super sleek and straight.
—Then, using a flat brush (like the Mason Person) and a blowdryer, brush your hair back flush against your head. Continue by flipping your head over so you’re brushing hair back in the direction of the pony. (Flipping your head over helps to avoid bumps)
—Once blown back sleek and straight for a couple minutes, gather your hair and brush it back into a smooth pony, securing with an elastic (or hair bungie if you have thick hair)
—Finish by smoothing the entire look with hairspray and a shine spray for extra gloss and hold.
