The LOOK: Day Looks Into Night
Friday, August 12, 2011
We've all been rocking the pony this summer, as it's been the go-to do, but how to turn the daytime pull-back into a nighttime stunner? Here are three secrets for turning your daytime pony into an evening look for those last-minute dinner meetings or after-work drinks.
1. Start with a low braid
Make your pony for the day a low braid. When evening rolls around and you need a fresh look, just release! Brush through with your fingers and run a hand through the top layer. Then, tip over, spray the underside and voila: full, sexy waves.
2. Start with a rope braid
Set your hair in the morning in a rope braid: turn two pieces in the same direction, then band the end when done. Pin it into a low bun for the day. Ready for night? Release it, and with a wide-tooth comb, comb it through and polish with silk drops or your favorite anti-frizz cream or serum. Chic and glamorous!
3. Start with finger curls
Get your pony set, then separate five pieces into finger curls, securing each with a bobby pin. Pop on a hair net to keep them safe. Sun going down? Cocktails calling? Release the net and pins and you'll have beautiful curls. Set them with spray, wear a great clip to the side, and you're off to the parties!
Happy styling! x
