Get the Look! Vintage Punk Pony Hairstyle by Karen Cunningham

Thursday, 08 September 2016 20:11

For this look, Karen Cunningham’s, National Artist for KMS California, was inspired to create significantly round shapes along the back of the hair, leaving a tiered effect. This look gives off a polished, yet distressed dual texture in the front.

Learn how to create the look:

  • 1. First, set the hair with hot rollers using KMS California FREESHAPE 2-in-1 styling + finishing spray to create a softer curl.
    2. Next, secure two ponytails, one at the crown and one at the nape.
    3. Use padding made from yaki hair and a hair net (molded into a crescent shape), pin under each of the ponytails. Then, backcomb the ponytail sections to create volume and start smoothing with the tip of a styling brush. 
    4. Next, form the smoothed hair onto the padding and secure.
    5. Tuck ends of pony in crown underneath then, tuck ends of second pony into nape. 
    6. Apply KMS California HAIRPLAY gel wax onto the front veil section for a different polished texture.
    7. Drape the veil section in front, around the back center and secure. Then mold the front pieces for a lived-in look.
  • 8. To add texture, pull some of the hair in the back and massage the ends.
