The Modern Ponytail at Victoria Beckham AW16

You are here

Yesterday at the Victoria Beckham show in New York, iconic hairstyling brand, ghd, partnered with fashion designer Victoria Beckham and international session stylist Guido Palau to create the hair look for the autumn/winter 2016 show.

“Over the last few seasons, Victoria has really developed and defined her vision of the Victoria Beckham woman and, to fit with this aesthetic, we have created this minimal but polished dual-textured ponytail.” - Guido Palau

Using the ghd air® hairdryer (£99) and his fingertips, Guido blow-dried hair back from the models faces to create a clean, frizz-free hairline, securing it in a low pony at the nape of the neck with elastic.

To achieve some minimal loose movement in the ponytail, Guido loosely ‘bent’ sections of hair around the ghd curve® soft curl tong (£120). A generous application of hairspray to the hairline completed the style, not just by creating hold, but also by giving a glossy, almost wet-look finish at the front.

“This look is an elevated, modern version of a simple style that women really want to wear. It’s polished but there’s also a genuine sense of ease to it too.” – Guido
