backstage with ghd and david Koma LFW AW13

Fashionista favourite – the ponytail – was the look for David Koma's A/W13 show at London Fashion Week thanks to ghd creative director Kenna and his backstage ghd styling team

A low, middle-parted pony at the nape of the neck worked seamlessly with the strong lines and futuristic feel of David Koma's A/W13 collection. Want some tips on the perfect pony? Trot on...

1 prep

Spritz ghd style root lift spray through the front and crown sections of the hair.

2 part

Create a middle parting with the ghd tail comb.

3 set with heat

Using the ghd air hairdryer, dry off the hair either side of the parting to set it in place.

4 smooth

Smooth through the hair on either side of the parting with the ghd oval dressing brush.

5 gather

Gather the hair together at the nape of the neck.

6 secure

Use a snag-free elastic to secure the ponytail in place.

7 tighten

Divide the ponytail in two and pull apart the sections to tighten the band at the nape.

8 loosen off

Holding the ponytail at the nape, loosen off the sides of the ponytail so they hang loosly over the ear.

9 finish

Rub individual strands between your thumb and finger to create a wispy texture. Loosen some longer strands so they fall and frame the face.
