This week Paris was buzzing for Paris Haute Couture 2017.  It’s always inspiring to see what each design house will think of next, and what direction hair and make up will take.  This season, The Ponytail Dominates Paris Haute Couture 2017 in a big way.  We’re seeing many variations that are sure to inspire.  In this journal, we are highlighting some of our favorites from backstage with Vogue.com at Paris Haute Couture.  Are you a ponytail lover?  If so, then this is definitely for YOU!

Rodarte

To start things off, we definitely wanted to highlight the hair at Rodarte.  We love how they played with the ponytail, by securing it back with ribbons, flowers, and bows, rather than completely securing it with an elastic.  It gives an angelic and loose feel.  How can you make this your own and street wearable?  Think less is more, follow the same inspiration, but just use one ribbon, or flower. Have a peek at some more from backstage at Rodarte:

Chanel

One of our favorites was the Ponytail that was created for the Chanel show.  This long ponytail with a twist is a quick and easy way to switch things up a bit.   To recreate this ponytail, all that you will need is a couple of elastics, bobby pins, a dressing brush, and some Iles Formula Finishing Serum.  If your hair is not already long, you can use and extension piece to add length.

To recreate, start by polishing the hair with Iles Formula Finishing Serum.  This will provide the hair with a satin shine, suppleness and control.  Then, simply brush the hair back into a low ponytail and secure.  Next, wrap the hair extension around the ponytail and secure with a pin.  To hide the weft, take a small section of hair and wrap it around the base of the ponytail and secure underneath with another pin.  Twist the hair and then wrap it around to create a loop.  Secure the ends at the base with another elastic.  This is such a simple way to change things up a bit.

Proenza Schouler

The next show we wanted to highlight was the hair at Proenza Schouler.  We love how the hair was made to look like a ponytail.  Using a different method, the hair is directed completely away from the the face, into the back behind the ear.  Not a single elastic was used to hold this, yet it still looks secured.

Schiaparelli

Sometimes for shows, less is definitely more.  Schiaparelli decided to go with a simple more classic vibe for hair, and we think it’s perfect.  Clean styles, with soft whispy bits made this one of our faves.  We love the shine that you see in the hair, and this can easily be created in your hair by applying our Iles Formula Finishing Serum.  What do you think?

Christian Dior

Textured Ponytails was the theme for hair at Christian Dior this season, and we had to include it in our Paris Haute Couture highlights.  These textured, yet soft looks came to life on the runway, as they flowed ever so slightly with the wind as the models walked the runway.

Occasional hats were placed to compliment the garments, while adding a different touch to the hair.  This is so wearable off the runway that we just had to share.

Giambattista Valli

Last but definitely not least was the hair at Giambattista Valli. We love the juxtaposition of smooth and sleek around the face, and textured and loose on the ends.  Such a perfect way to change up a simple ponytail.  The easiest way to create this to be sure that the hair around the face stays super smooth, is to apply product and brush the hair smooth and away from the face.  Then secure with an elastic.  Use some hair to wrap the base and hide the elastic, securing it with a pin underneath.  Once you have place and secured the hair, you can use a 1 inch iron to add texture to the ends.  How easy is this, and very wearable too.
