A Great Ponytail Never Goes Out of Style

Hi there my Friends at HairDesignerTV and Fellow Stylists,

A ponytail is a “go to” for many Fashion Designers, as it shows off the neckline of an outfit with hair away from the face.  So it never goes out of style.  But the challenge for us is to offer a special ponytail that requires the magic touch of a hairdresser.  The secret to a great relaxed ponytail is in the set.

All of these looks had a strong iron set.
(Check out last weeks blog on the ‘Curl Chart’ to evaluate your set.) 

The curl chart:   I love my chart which is part of the Editorial course on HDTV.

Consultation Considerations
1. Where does the clients natural texture live from 1 to 10? 
(level 1 being poker straight and level 10 being a kinky tight curl.) 
2. How far from natural do I want to go?
3. Is the weather and environment going to impact the texture?

The other important aspect of these 3 ponytail styles is that they all have a back combed base and only then when the ponytail was secured it was pulled apart gently without losing the shape. This is an art unto itself!
