San Francisco's sleek ponytails

As many of you know, we just adore our in-house lead educator Corinna Hernandez. This morning she taught the Edo staff high-fashion, backstage ponytails inspired by Bottega Veneta's at 2014 Fashion Week, Milan edition.

We first got started on her beautiful model Vicky. Vicky has perfect hair for this, not too thick and little to no waves. Corinna's first step was prepping her hair with Bumble and bumble's Prep Spray then saturating it with Thickening Spray, blow-drying hair from roots to end making sure to keep the hair close to the head and free of any kinks. After half a can of Does it All and many brush strokes, she secured the ponytail with a hair bungee, not a rubber band. Finishing off with Invisible Oil...the hair is now sleek but not wet looking.

Here are some photos of the clean and luminous ponytail from today's advanced styling class:









Elegant, polished and sophisticated. The sleek pony doesn't have to only grace the runway.

Quote from hair hero Guido Paulo,


“The hair for Bottega Veneta is clean and sharp, which is a bit of a departure from previous seasons,” said Guido. “In the past, the hairstyles were easier, softer and more natural. A sort of 90′s minimalism inspired me, so the hair is simple with blunt lines. Hair extensions were used to create a very long fake ponytail that resembles the same thickness and consistency of a horse’s tail. There is certainly an intended element of artificiality to the hair,” he explained.
