F/W 2010 NY Fashion Week Beauty Report - DKNY

Beauty.com Now here's a ponytail that's not run of the mill!

At the Fall 2010 DKNY collection the featured look was a refined side-swept ponytail which reflected a sexy, luxurious equestrian vibe.

I loved how the ponytail’s length fell over the shoulder on the side where hair is parted, while just a few face framing layers were left to brush along on the opposite side of the face.

The inspiration behind the look was reflected in the idea of NY art and architecture for the collection itself.
A neutral palette of blacks, charcoal, umber, vicuna and oxblood were accentedw with bluebird, sapphire, peach, and oyster was seen throuought the collection.

For these hair looks, Wella Professionals lead colorist Eva Scrivo directed a team of Wella colorists to handpaint extensions within the natural color palette of the models’ hair –ranging from medium brown to a beautiful spectrum of blonde shades.

Using Wella Professionals’ new Blondor collection to achieve the palest of blondes, along with the gorgeous palette of naturals in both the Koleston Perfect permanent and Color Touch demi-permanent collections, the range reflects beautiful dimension in a variety of hues.
Extensions were naturally woven in to soften the look by placing the paler pieces in the front where sun would naturally lighten hair.

The hair was styled by Eugene Souleiman, Global Creative Director for Wella Professionals.
Here's how you can get this sleek, glamourous ponytail yourself! - RLB

1. Prepare damp hair with System Professional Volumagic and blow dry with a large round brush, creating a soft wave and giving direction for the side part.
2. Rake hands through hair to loosen the waves, pulling to the side of the part and fasten the low side ponytail.
3. Leave hair on the opposite side of the ponytail loose around the face to balance the asymmetry of the look.
4. Lightly smooth System Professional Hypercurl on the length of the ponytail for separation and added texture.

Here are the System Professional products to try:
• System Professional Volumagic: Natural hold styling foam for long-lasting volume (SRP: $16)
• System Professional Hypercurl: Provides texture and definition to curl patterns (SRP: $18)
