Ponytails are back! David Antunes, celebrity stylist and Youthful8 – The Milania Collection Brand Ambassador praised the rebirth of the ponytail for Spring/Summer 2014. “This season ponytails are back with a vengeance” said Antunes. Seen all over the runways in New York, Milan and Paris, designers such as Valentino, Helmut Lang and Missoni have revamped the "girl-next-door" look, and brought back this sleek fashion statement. Antunes refers to this new look as a "MOD Ponytail," which is no longer just for schoolgirls or bad hair days. Here, Antunes provides his tips for recreating the look:
“Whether you want to create an effortless or intricate look, make sure to use a vitamin treatment to prepare the hair. I use Youthful8 – The Milania Collection, Total Vitamin Leave-In Treatment”, says Antunes. “Even if you are going for a sultry, low loose, or soft romantic ponytail, you MUST nourish and prep the hair before you style it.”
Youthful8 Total Vitamin Leave-in Treatment is a professional daily multi-vitamin that primes and conditions hair for styling, leaving strands healthy and hydrated while reducing frizz and imparting incomparable shine.
For a look inspired by Taylor Swift's 2014 Grammy Awards ponytail, Antunes recommends these steps:
1) First apply Youthful8 – The Milania Collection, Total Vitamin Leave-in Treatment and heat protector before giving a smooth silky blow out.
2) On dry hair apply Youthful8 – The Milania Collection Argan Oil and curl hair in loose ringlets in small sections.
3) Pull hair back loosely, keeping a small 1⁄4 inch section of hair at the nape of your neck out to wrap around band.
4) In order to conceal the ponytail holder, wrap the remaining 1⁄4 inch section around the band and secure with bobby pins. For added drama, you can include a beautiful clip.
