John Legend may have won the Golden Globe last night for Best Original Song but it’s Chrissy Teigen who stole the Red Carpet spotlight with her blush pink sheath gown and super chic, tousled pony.
Celebrity Hairstylist and International Creative Director for Macadamia Professional, Giannandrea (pictured below with the happy couple), was inspired to create an effortless style that pulled her hair up and away from the face and neck, allowing the detailed dress to really shine. It was a modern, elegant take on the playful pony, which perfectly accented the rest of her look.
See the step-by-step “how to” with product recommendations below:
- Step 1: Apply Macadamia Professional Foaming Volumizer on wet hair before blow drying the whole head with a large round brush, to create ample volume at the roots and length
- Step 2: Use a 1-inch curling iron and curl the whole head in waves
- Step 3: Once the hair was set in waves, use a generous dollop of Macadamia Professional Whipped Detailing Cream and run hands throughout the hair, using fingers to create supple separation and texture all the way through the ends
- Step 4: Gather hair into a high pony tail, slightly below the crown. Tie the pony into an elastic band and take a small section of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the elastic band covering it. Keep the pony playful by using your fingers to open it up and make it wide, textured and volumized
- Step 5: Make sure it’s not too tight around the face by creating volume at the front with separation. Leave some fly aways on the sides for an effortless look
- Step 6: Spray in place with Macadamia Control Working Spray to protect against humidity and set for a night out.
