How-To: The High Gloss Ponytail
Think wet-look hair is only for the runway? Today Joey Maalouf shows a wearable version of the trend on Team Zoe staffer Kendall Cohan through two perfect ponytails; one sporty and high and one sophisticated and low. Get Joey’s tips for pulling off both high gloss hairstyles with ease, below.
High Glossy Ponytail
By keeping the crown of your ponytail shiny and slick and the length of it brushed out and full, a high ponytail looks purposeful and polished enough for cocktails (and nothing like the one you rock in yoga class).
Instead of securing all of your hair in one ponytail, make two ponytails right on top of each other. This creates length, adds height and keeps hair secure all night long. To conceal the two elastics, wrap a section of hair around the outside and pin to secure.
Style It With
Low Glossy Ponytail
Nothing beats a low, high shine ponytail when you want to look sophisticated for a night out. Keep the ends of the ponytail a little bit matte and tease them slightly for volume in order to create a dramatic, dual texture look.
If a middle part feels too severe, create a two-inch part and then brush the rest of hair back in order to soften the look and create volumne in the crown.
As with the high ponytail, use the finishing spray to create texture and then finish with a shine-enhancing product. Joey used Lea Journo's illuminating moisturizer on hair and skin, for a gorgeous all-over glow. Lea Journo Voila Finishing Spray, $28; Lea Journo Lumiere Illuminating Moisturizer for Hair & Body, $14.
