Designer: Cushnie et Ochs

Lead Hair Stylist: Antonio Corral Calero, Moroccanoil Global Creative Director

The Scoop: The Cushnie et Ochs Spring/Summer 2015 Collection is inspired by Cleopatra in the desert sunset and the hair, a simple, sleek ponytail – with a twist – was similarly designed to invoke Ancient Egyptian Mythology and the sexiness of Cleopatra.

How To DIY Sleek Ponytail (With A Twist!)

  1. Apply Moroccanoil Treatment to damp hair to condition and hydrate strands for easier styling
  2. Next, spritz Moroccanoil Heat Styling Protection and Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine throughout entire head to help achieve maximum hold and control
  3. Blow dry hair smooth using Moroccanoil Boar Bristle Brush and finish with spray of Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray
  4. Pull hair into tight ponytail at the crown using Moroccanoil Boar Bristle Paddle Brush and secure with bungee elastic
  5. Next, take 1” section of ponytail and spray with Moroccanoil Heat Styling Protection for long-lasting hold.  Wrap hair around the elastic and secure
  6. Using a ceramic hair styling iron straighten the ponytail in 1” sections for a super-straight, sleek style
  7. With second elastic, secure hair 1½” from base.  Gently loosen section between elastics to create voluminous, “puffed” element of sophistication at the top of the ponytail.  Pin elastic to hair underneath.    
  8. Finish with spritz of Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine for a luminous, gilded finish and Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray for long-lasting hold
