The ponytail is a favorite hairstyle all over the world and for this year, one of the key variations is the low ponytail. The low ponytail was spotted in many shows and we saw different versions of this 2013 hair trend: from simple to textured, we can’t help but love the effortless mood they convey.

For the Parkchoonmoo show at New York Fashion Week, Tigi Stylist Nick Irwin created a simple and sleek ponytail that went well with a collection of modern, yet still very feminine silhouettes. With the help of our hair consultant and Melbourne hairstylist, Annika Bowen, we give you the how to for this look. Check out the steps after the break.

How to: simple, sleek ponytail at Parkchoonmoo

To get this look Catwalk by Tigi Sleek Mystique was used.

Start off by prepping hair with Tigi Fast Fixx Style Prep.
Starting in the center create a middle part going all the way down to the nape of the neck. You should now have two main sections.
Starting at the nape take horizontal partings from each two sections. Use flat irons to straighten these sections and then spray each section with Tigi’s Look Lock hairspray to keep your hair straight. Continue doing this in all sections of your hair.

Once all the hair has been straightened, take a soft bristle brush and brush all hair down towards center nape. Keep brushing until you have achieved your desired sleek look.
Fasten ponytail with an elastic and brush it down. To maintain the sleek look, spray on some more hairspray.
