Chic Braided High Pony by Sebastian Professional

To coincide with Christian Siriano’s spring 2014 collection featuring bright tropical colors, Anthony Cole, lead stylist for Sebastian Professional Stylist Design Team, gave each model a look that was big, bold and beachy. The voluminous, braided ponytails fit perfectly with Christian’s women of the island theme– it’s young, fresh, and romantic—a true celebration of women.

HOW-TO STEPS

  • close formula
    1

    On dry, unwashed hair, take 2-inch sections, starting from the occipital bone, and spritz Sebastian Professional Volupt Spray on the roots. Pull each 2-inch section up and over the forehead after it’s been saturated before moving to the next section.

    2

    Apply a golf ball sized amount of Sebastian Professional Mousse Forte from below the roots to the ends.

    3

    Using hands, rough dry the hair in a circular motion to create a cushion of interior texture for fullness. Keep the texture and height even throughout.

    4

    Bring all sections back into a ponytail just above the occipital bone to showcase the round of the head, and secure it with a bungee rubber band.

    5

    Create flat waves throughout the ponytail by making S-shaped sections with your fingers and clamping them with a straightening iron for a messy texture.

    6

    Emulsify Sebastian Professional Microweb Fiber in hands and finger tease the ponytail for added movement.

    Spritz Sebastian Professional Shaper to the top of the head while using fingers to push pieces of the hair back to add dry texture.

    8

    Take ¼-inch section of hair from the bottom of the ponytail and create a chain braid by tying it in loose knots. Wrap the braid around the ponytail to cover the bungee rubber band and secure for a soft, organic feel.
