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...
Spritz ghd root lift spray through the front and crown sections of the hair.
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.
Smooth through the hair on either side of the parting with the ghd oval dressing brush.
Gather the hair together at the nape of the neck.
Use a snag-free elastic to secure the ponytail in place.
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.
Rub individual strands between your thumb and finger to create a wispy texture. Loosen some longer strands so they fall and frame the face.
