Time to give your regular pony a serious shake up.

Words by

REDKEN and Swarovski make a pretty glitzy pairing.

Swarovski’s recent MBFWA runway featured slick, glitter-covered ponytails created by REDKEN. The 'do channelled the Milky Way in all its glistening glory, appropriate given the galactic motifs in Swarovski’s Fall/Winter collection.

Here’s the how-to on these sparkly ponies:

1. Apply Pillow Proof Express Blow Dry Primer to clean, dry hair and directionally blow-dry the hair toward the crown.

2. At the crown, pull out a tennis ball-size section and apply RFM Stand Tough Extreme Gel to the root area. With a tail comb, direct all the hair to the crown. Tie off with an elastic to form a small ponytail. This will serve as an anchor point for the remainder of the hair as you continue applying gel and slicking tightly.

3. Tie off the final ponytail then take a small ribbon of hair and wind it around the elastic at the base. Apply Forceful 23 Super Strength Hairspray and blow dry to secure for lasting hold.

4. Flat iron the ponytail and spray with Forceful 23 Super Strength Hairspray. Apply glitter and heat set with a diffuser. Continue applying glitter and heat setting until the desired effect is achieved.
