Saoirse Ronan’s Twisted & Embellished Ponytail

close formula

Celeb stylist and Virtue Creative Director Adir Abergel (@hairbyadir) is known for adding unique, statement-making embellishments to his celebrity clients’ upstyles—and the result? Some of Hollywood’s most memorable beauty moments. So it was no surprise that Adir wove metallic thread (literally with a sewing needle!) from a Parisian vintage shop into actress Saoirse Ronan’s ponytail for the 2018 SAG Awards. Get the steps below to recreate the look!


Manufacturer: Virtue, @virtuelabs

Products Used



Prep the hair with Virtue Full Shampoo and Conditioner to volumize the hair.


Then, apply Virtue Uplifted Volumizing Whip to the roots to add volume at the crown, and Virtue Perfect Ending Split End Serum to the ends.


Create a middle part and rough-dry the crown section to create volume and texture, then blow-dry the front sections with a round brush.


After the hair is completley dry, use a 1.25-inch curling iron to bend the front sections creating an effortless texture. Then, backcomb the crown area to create height for a 1960s-inspired silhouette.


Pull the hair back into a low, twisted ponytail. Tuck one side of the hair behind the ear to create a relaxed glamour look. Apply Virtue Finale Shaping Spray to set the style.
