Ponytails High And Mighty With One Little Extra Wrap
It's not a look everyone can pull off, but if you're used to wearing a high, stick-straight ponytail, then keep it going through Fall and Winter 2012. That's the HOT trend that Jason Wu was showing off at his stunning collection.
But there's one more step to this high and mighty do---a little extra wrap for your elastic.
Stylist Odile Gilbert was busy backstage amping up the swinging ponytail. It gives more power to the classic, cheerleader do with a bit of a bad-girl edge. Her ponytails were mounted high on the models' heads with strips of latex that looked like black masking tape.
In fact, Odile tells InStyle magazine(Sept. issue) that you can use this:
"Electric tape from the hardware store works too," she says. It gives structure and sex appeal."
We prefer some 3MM leather cord ($3 per yard), instead. We found this at mjtrim.com.
"She is very strong, and she’s ready to fight," Odile Gilbert said of the Wu woman next fall.
We are all for that.
