Get the Look: Kendall Jenner’s Met Ball High Ponytail
She was once primarily known for her famous family, but since becoming the face of Estee Lauder and walking on the catwalks of Chanel and Givenchy, Kendall Jenner has established herself as a fashion icon in her own right. And at this week’s Met Gala, she turned up in the full head-turning glamour we’ve come to expect from the 20-year-old.
Dressed in a stunning cut-out Versace gown apparently chosen for her by Donatella herself, Kendall wisely chose to keep the rest of her look understated. Neutral makeup ensured that all eyes were on the beautiful detailing of the dress, while a sleek, high ponytail showed off the model’s famous bone structure. Want to create this hair look yourself? Follow these 7 simple steps to get a high pony to rival Kendall’s.
Step 1: After washing and conditioning, work a product such as EIMI’s Smooth Perfect Me through damp hair to create a smooth, flyaway-free finish.
Step 2: Blowdry hair straight and then separate into two sections, pinning the top half of the hair out of the way.
Step 3: Brush the bottom section of hair away from the neck, and gently mist it with a light hairspray such as Sassoon Professional Motion Hold. Brush this through to prevent flyaways, and secure this section out of the way with a clip.
Step 4: Let the top section of hair down and spray your brush with the hairspray. Brush hair back from the face and pull into a tight ponytail on top of the head.
Step 5: Release the bottom section of hair from the clip, and mist the brush with Motion Hold again. Use the brush to swoop the bottom layer of hair up to meet the top ponytail. Secure.
Step 6: For a flawless finish, take a 2-3 inch section of hair from the back and wrap it around the base of the pony to hide the hair tie.
Step 7: Ensure the final look is sleek with a final spritz of a maximum hold hairspray such as KMS California Hair Stay Maximum Hold Spray. The added shine of this product will keep your ponytail looking glossy rather than stiff.
