NYFW Hair: Looped Ponytails at SUNO F/W 2015

Filled with Caribbean colors against a muted backdrop, the SUNO Fall/Winter 2015 collection featured graphic primaries including red, yellow, blue and green, grounded in solid black and white. SUNO designers Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty incorporated elements of madness – inspired by Bertha Mason, the insane first wife of Edward Rochester in Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre – throughout the collection with seams pulling apart, unlikely combinations of print and trims, and structured silhouettes that then give way.

Lead hairstylist Odile Gilbert created a structured, looped ponytail hair look to complement the collection.

Get the Look:
1. Prep: Hair was brushed and Kenra Platinum Dry Shampoo was applied to refresh the hair. For finer hair that has a bit more oil and impurities at the roots, the Kenra Platinum Texture Powder 4 (newly launched this month) was used to alleviate it. Afterwards, the Kenra Platinum Style Prep was sprayed all over the hair to provide an even canvas for styling (launching in May 2015).

2. Style: To achieve a sleek, slicked back look, Kenra Hot Spray 20 was sprayed on the hair before it was flat-ironed, section by section. For models with curly hair, the Kenra Platinum Blow Dry Spray – which also provides thermal protection – was applied to the hair and blown out with a hair dryer before being flat-ironed.

3. The hair was then slicked from the front to the back with a comb and the Kenra Volume Mousse 12. The hair was continually combed back and the Kenra Platinum Texturizing Taffy 13 was applied. Throughout the styling process, Kenra Platinum Working Spray 14 was used to maintain the hold and keep the hair in place.

4. Once the hair was pulled back, the hair was blow‐dried to be set, and then gathered at the back into a low ponytail. It was then looped upwards and clipped into a beret, allowing for movement of hair in the ends.

5. Once the looped pony was in place in the beret, the Kenra Volume Spray 25 was sprayed all over to set the style, with heavier application at the top of the head to provide maximum hold.
