Last month Kookai launched its beautiful Autumn/Winter 2015 collection at the Royal Exhibition Buildings in Melbourne. The new collection ‘Viva Las Vegas’ showcased a tailored symphony of signature body-tight silhouettes anchored by on-trend graphic prints, pastels, grey and classic black. On the runway, models were sleek in their beauty look and the most talked about part of the Beauty look was the sleek braided ponytail that was created by L’oreal Professionnel Tecni.ART Ambassador, Joe Cotroneo using the Tecni.ART styling collection.

Katie Fergus Kookai AW 2015To create the look, Joe gave us these easy to steps so you can create the look at home.

Begin by blow drying or straightening the hair with the Steampod by L’Oréal Professionnel (rrp $300). For a long-lasting sleek finish that lasts up to 72 hours, pair withL’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Dual Stylers Sleek & Swing (rrp$33).

Once straight, comb hair into a side part. Spray L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Wild Stylers Crêpage de Chignon (rrp $33) directly to the roots for added texture and lift at the crown.

Secure hair with an elastic at mid-height. Apply L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Wild Stylers Scruff Me (rrp $33) to the length of the ponytail to tame fly-aways and achieve a sleek, wet-look finish without compromising on movement.

Braid around the base of the ponytail, stopping when you reach halfway down the length of the ponytail. Secure with elastic. Finish the look with L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Crystal Gloss (rrp $25) for a natural, high-shine finish and L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Air Fix (rrp $30) to hold the look in place.
