Did you love Olivia Palermo’s laidback wedding day ponytail? We asked Patrick Wilson, Principle Stylist at Electric Hairdressing, how to recreate this chic but casual bridal ‘do!
Prep the hair by applying Electric Volume Liquid Mist to the roots and blast until dry – this will give a great foundation for the look.
Section the hair and apply Beauty Works Deluxe Remy Clip-ins to add volume to the natural hair.
Begin by curling sections of the hair using a Cloud 9 waving wand. Loosely pull the hair into a ponytail securing with an elastic or bungie hook near the nape of the neck. Ensure the elastic or bungie hook match your hair shade.
Wrap a small section of hair around the base of your ponytail and secure with a grip to disguise the elastic.
For a dishevelled finish, apply a small amount of Loreal Techni Art Fresh Dust to the ponytail and lightly tease the ends with your finger
Patrick says: “This look is always better on day old hair, rather than freshly washed!”
Low-key bridal hair looks set to be very popular for 2015, with volumised but simple styles appearing on celebrities, real life brides and the catwalk alike.
“We believe Olivia took catwalk inspiration from Jenny Packham’s 2015 bridal show, where models wore low, feminine ponytails with lots of volume,” says Amy of Beauty Works. “Session stylist Jeanie Syfu used Deluxe Remy Clip-in hair extensions to add extra texture and volume. We love to see brides with their hair pulled back, as you can focus on their natural beauty!”
