We sat down last night with TRESemmé stylist Jeanie Syfu (whom, if you recall, we also chatted with about The Fashion Show) to learn about the perky-and-pretty ponytails at Whitney Port‘s show, Whitney Eve.
The ponytail look (shown at left) from the Whitney Eve show was meant to match the girly aesthetic of of the clothes. To give the top of the hair a little height, Jeanie and her fellow TRESemmé stylists used a round brush and TRESemmé’s 24 Hour Body Root Boost volumizing spray. The stylists then worked on the ponytail itself, using an inch curling iron and roughing up the texture a little with their hands to get the loose, undone curls that kept the look more casual. Anti-frizz cream finished off the super-sweet look.
As always, Jeanie was full of useful tips for us on all manner of hairstyles and products!
What looks are going to be big for this spring?
I like the idea of something casual and undone, because I always feel like when things are too neat, they just look too hard. [Whitney's] collection is really feminine, so we kept in that soft element.
So if the look from Whitney Eve is for a girly-girl, what do you think a rocker chick would be styling for spring?
Again, we’re seeing a lot of really casual looks. We don’t anything to look too styled. Even if the girl had a crazy undercut, all of her hair gone on one side—it’s all about how you’re finishing the look. Not so overworked, piece-y, bed head—that kind of texture is really in. So if it’s not going to be up in a bun and undone, it’s going to be down and loose and undone.
What product can you not live without?
Probably the TRESemmé Heat Tamer Spray. It’s really great for restyling your hair, and it’ll also protect from any kind of thermal styling. I like to use it for anything—it adds a lot of texture, especially if you layer it with other products. Even on second day hair, I’ll kind of re-wet my hair with the spray and blow dry on top of that. It doesn’t have any hold to it, but it’s a good foundation.
