Level Up That Ponytail With This Metrowear Hairstyle
A stunning beauty look is never complete without consideration to the hair; and perhaps the best example of which is Mark Bumgarner’s pearl embellished ponytail for his Metrowear fashion show. Although the models’ rosy, berry-toned smoky eyes were a statement on their own, the elegant finish to the hair just adds an extra level of glamour—like dew drops on petals, to go with Mark’s floral tailored collection.
Nelson Cruz of Styleluxe Salon, key hair stylist to Mark’s show, wanted to create a carefree but chic style to go with the modern, classic gowns. “I wanted to show how style can be light and easy for a modern woman.,” he says. Taking the standard ponytail that’s typical of gym days or weekends, Nelson just added more slick and texture before inserting pearl pins.
The approach is so simple that any woman can replicate it for their own use. After a good wash, explains Nelson, apply any root boosting spray or mousse as close to the scalp as possible. Blast dry, and with your own fingers, pull back to a low ponytail—the messier the better! Then, top off with as much pearls, or pins as you like.
Last but not least, of course, is to keep your head high, and your spirits lifted. “Ultimately, having the right outlook is everything.”, says Nelson. “You just have to be always confident of how you look, which is what being beautiful means.”
