Delivering a clean, minimal ponytail for Runway 1, L’Oréal Professional kept it simple with long extensions and a low side part. Hair Director Brad Ngata wanted the hair to stay true to the collection “It’s all true to Miss Vogue, young and youthful. The clothes are quiet interesting so it’s all about making the hair disappear. It’s very polished and a staple runway look.”

Recreating this look has never been so easy. Brad Ngata exclusively tells Couturing how to achieve this staple runway look in four simple steps.


1. Isolate the back from ear to ear and place elastic to hold it all together

2. Create a sharp side part and begin brushing hair towards the back

3. Tie the two strands of hair together with the original elastic

4. Conceal the elastic with a few strands of hair wrapped around it and straighten pony again

TIP: Wet a makeup sponge with mousse and pat down on any flyaway to keep hair looking smooth and professional.

L’Oréal Paris Make-Up Director, Elsa Morgan did not disappoint in assigning the makeup look. Opting for a beautiful soft halo of colour around the eyes with warm colours intensifies the look and keeps it perfect for autumn/winter.

“We added warm colours around the eyes with a gorgeous shimmer coming through. Adding L’Oréal Paris False Lash Butterfly Wings Mascara in black for beautiful eyelashes and finishing off with soft luminous skin.”
