We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, ponytails are perennially chic.

On Monday at New York Fashion Week, super sleek ponytails were re-imagined at Carolina Herrera A/W 15 by master hair guru Orlando Pita, who bound them with silver leather using simple steps and TRESemmé styling products you can use yourself at home.

“Our collection this season was based on the light patterns of the sun on water that lead to these beautiful wave shapes and blurred prints,” says Carolina Herrera. Adding, “Orlando’s wrapped ponytail pulls the outfit together, creating a striking contrast to the soft layers but in a way that still feels quite feminine and wearable.”

In keeping with the watery theme, models looked as if they just walked (ever so elegantly) out of the shower – with supermodel Karlie Kloss both opening and closing the show.

“I’ve enjoyed working the simple pony a few times this season and our wrapped version at Carolina Herrera is an easy update to bring a little more drama to an evening look,” says Pita. “The tight shape highlights the nape of your neck in a way that is subtly sexy.”

Step 1

Start by washing your hair using TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner and towel dry.


Step 2

Work in the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Shine Protection Spray from root to tip and dry hair straight back (with no part), using a soft bristle brush.


Step 3

Layer in TRESemmé Liquid Gold Anti Frizz Perfector from the roots to mid lengths


Step 4

Comb the hair back into a low pony at the nape of the neck and secure with a thin elastic. Starting from about two inches away from the elastic tightly weave ribbon, or a thin strip of leather, around the pony, securing with a small knot behind the elastic.

Step 5

Finish the look by spraying TRESemmé Styling Hairspray for extra hold. For extra shine, layer more TRESemmé Liquid Gold Anti Frizz Perfector onto the lengths of the pony.
