Duct tape: one of man’s greatest inventions and latest hair accessory? It was Alexander Wang who started it all, turning a simple ponytail into a very futuristic hairstyle by adding a strip of duct tape in the center part. Ingenious? Yes, as genius as those who invented the duct tape. Judging by the effect the duct tape hairstyle had on the runway, it’s not surprising to see another version of it and this time the wonder tape was seen on a minimalist triple ponytail at the Independent Runway show during the Melbourne Fashion Festival.
LMFF Hair Directors and L’Oréal Professionnel Ambassadors Caterina Di Biase and Brad Ngata designed the hairstyle for the show, envisaging a use of black duct tape in a way that’s more wearable and accessible as a 2013 hairstyle than the one at Alexander Wang. The look was described as “new minimalism” and combines the two different textures or wet and dry. As streamlined as this look is, it’s not very hard to do and we’ve got the steps right after the break.
