Vintage Punk Pony
Every client loves a distressed texture with just the right amount of polish. Are we right, or are we right? Here, Karen Cunningham, National Artist for KMS California, gives us a step-by-step guide for this vintage-inspired punk pony. Here’s how you can recreate it behind the chair in your salon.
Next, secure two ponytails, one at the crown and one at the nape.
Use padding made from Yaki Hair and a hair net (molded into a crescent shape), pin under each of the ponytails. Then, backcomb the ponytail sections to create volume and start smoothing with the tip of a styling brush.
Next, form the smoothed hair onto the padding and secure.
Tuck the ends of pony underneath the crown, then tuck the ends of second pony into the nape.
Finally, drape the veil section in front, around the back center and secure. Then mold the front pieces for a lived-in look.
To change the look and add texture to the above style, pull some of the hair in the back and massage the ends.
