How to: the lustrous waterfall ponytail at Camilla and Marc.

For flawless results, you should start building this look on clean, dry hair. Proceed to simply part your locks down the middle and apply a volumizing product starting at the roots, and working your way towards the ends. Backstage at Camilla and Marc, Carl used the Rootfull 06 Root Lifting Spray by Redken.

Next, blow dry your hair using a natural bristle brush until you achieve a firm, smooth texture.

Once done, create a horseshoe-shaped section, tie the bottom of the section into a low ponytail and secure the top with a hair clip. Next, slide a kilt pin (or safety pin) through the bottom section ponytail, making sure to release and smooth the top section of hair into the pin before closing.

Seeing how high-shine is mandatory when seeking the same sophisticated feel we’ve seen prevailing on the runway, use a lightweight aerosol spray all over the hair to create enviable high-shine lustre. Carl Reeves recommends Redken’s Shine Flash 02 Glistening Mist.

Before finishing off the look with a few spritzes of a super-strong hairspray, gently pull some wisps from the hairline to gift the look with that perfectly-undone aura. At Camilla and Marc spring 2015, Carl used the Redken Forceful 23 Super Strength Hairspray.
