Look of the day: Braided Ponytail

Every day a Chef de Cabine chooses her favourite look of the day and explains how you can achieve it at home in five easy steps. Today Bianca van Swieten chose the look: ‘Braided Ponytail’ she created for the 1/OFF® show.


Products: Perfect setting, Perfect me, Flexible Finish – All three products are from Wella Eimi

Tools: Hair dryer, elastic band, polishing brush, pin, small rubber bands.

Difficulty (1 is very easy and 5 is pretty complicated):  3 – you must be able to make a braid.

Occasion: Perfect for a party like going to a club or a festival.

5 steps away:

  1. First make sure you prep the hair with Perfect setting. Spray this through the whole hair. On top, apply a small amount of Perfect me just in the ends.
  2. Blow dry the hair 100% dry.
  3. Use the polish brush and brush all the hair together. When you are satisfied with the way it looks, bind everything together with your elastic band.
  4. Tie one small strand of hair from the ponytail around the elastic band to hide it, and secure it with a sliding pin. Spray some flexible finish.
  5. Last but not least, divide the tail into three equal parts and make three braids, secure with a small rubber band and finish with Flexible Finish.

Tip from Bianca: Make sure that the tail is at the height of the crown this optically lengthens the body and this makes the look chic for any woman.
