Inspired by the wet-hair look that has been gracing the European runways, L’Oreal Professionnel Hair Director Catarina Di Biase created a Mohawk ponytail for Runway 2 presented by InStyle.

“We created a beautiful extended ponytail with a touch of a mohawk feel. The centre part panel has been risen slightly so it has more height, shape and elegance”, said Di Biase. “With elegence, it’s the length of the ponytail that matters. It’s long and has a beautiful finish and polish with shine and gloss.”


The look can be recreated at home with three simple products: Dry Shampoo, Super Dust and Shine Spray.

“The Dry Shampoo will fix yesterdays hair and give you a dry look while the Super Dust is used in the roots to give you that miracle lift.”

Adding shine spray completed the wet-hair look and gave it a run for the runway.

TIP: You can recreate this look with clip in extensions and lots of backcombing and teasing. Extensions by ShowPony were used to add extra hair.
