The common theme at AIFW spring/summer 2018 was unique designs and neutral make-up. Surprisingly, many designers experimented with the silhouettes, colours and drapes but left beauty looks as natural as can be. Low-key make-up and nails took over the ramp and the natural hair trends were happily embraced, repeatedly. But which hairstyle did we spot the most? Slicked-back low ponytails and buns. Yes, that’s what designers dedicated the season to. But you’ll be surprised by the variety. We present to you, 5 of these designers. Have a look so you can try it too.
The multi-coloured outfits with flowy silhouettes and the headband from the 80s took the look but slicked-back hairstyle with fixed strands was a perfect compliment to the ensemble. You can keep those strands steady by using Toni&Guy Glamour: Moisturising Shine Spray 150ml (Rs 720)
The trick to get slicked-back ponytail right is by smoothening the strands using nylon and boar bristle brush like Elite Models ABC5008C Boar Bristles Cushion Hair Brush in White (Rs 999)
Use your fingertip to spread the NeoVeda Hair Growth Gel 500ml (Rs 600) on strands and start from half of an inch back from the roots. Explore your parting options while trying the look. You’ll be surprised to see the difference your center parting makes as compared to your right or left one.
In case you are donning the look for a party or a wedding, you can also add the shine by using BBLUNT MINI Spotlight Hair Polish, For Instant Shine 30ml (Rs 250) because all the light would be on you.
A slicked-back pony looks flawless when the area where bungee is visible is finely wrapped with a strand of your hair. And don’t skip finishing spray - BBLUNT MINI Blown Away, Volumizing Leave-In Spray (Rs 203)
