Haute ponytail

How To Elevate A Coif Classic



Make the streets your personal runway by taking a go-to look to new levels of haute-ness. A perfect example: the classic ponytail. In the hands of seasoned hair pro Piet Pantano, a long mane is slicked down at the base and fashioned into a high-standing ponytail placed at center crown. The choice of a stunning hair accessory, positioned at the ponytail’s base, gives the silhouette an architectural vibe. Free-flowing lengths are flat-ironed smooth to silky perfection.
