Don’t have time to get to the salon and stuck for quick hair inspiration? Want easy to create, 5 minute hairstyles? With our professional session stylists, who work backstage at fashion week, we have created 5 key looks that you can recreate in 5 minutes or less. Get all our top tips and key products to make your Monday morning easier.
1. Bobble ponytail
Technique: Put hair into a mid-low ponytail with an elastic. Now place another elastic a third of the way down, creating a bobble effect.
2. The Pretty Plait
Key product: Mythic Oil.
Top tip: Slightly destroy the plait with your fingers for a slightly disheveled look.
Technique: Rub a few drops of Mythic Oil in your hands and run it through your hair. Pull your hair back loosely and braid into a long, central plait, tied at the end with an elastic.
3. The Messy Bun
Key product: Tecni.ART Super Dust.
Top tip: Prep and finish with Tecni.ART Super Dust for a matte-effect finish.
Technique: Pull hair into a mid-height ponytail, secure with an elastic and pull the pony around into a loose bun. Secure with pins and don’t forget to tease out strands of baby hair all over for that messy look.
4. Sleek back
Top tip: Place the product on the top and sides of the hair only to create a dual-texture effect.
Technique: Mix the products together in your hands. Then using your fingers first and then a comb, slick back hair, pushing sides behind your ears.
5. The ‘Un-Grunge’ Wave
Top tip: Spray Infinium Hairspray onto your hands and using your fingers, rake through the back of the hair away from the temples, to catch any flyaways.

Without damaging the hair, you can straighten or curl it with a styling iron. After it is washed, the piece always dries into its natural shape. Looks and feels natural, like real hair!

– Natural colour match: thanks to the mix of various tone-on-tone colour mix the Elegance collection always matches the natural own hair colour. To wear the hair in a knot or ponytail, it only has to match the natural, own basic colour.

The ponytail was one of the most re-created looks of spring summer 2015. L’Oréal Professionnel and our team of expert session stylists show you how to create three different, on-trend ponytail hairstyles using a few of our key products.
The Wrap-Around Ponytail
“I wanted to create a simple shape with clean hair” – Session stylist Halley brisker for J. JS Lee
Re-create the look:
Step One: Use Tecni.ART Liss Control to prep hair and polish it clean for a morning fresh look
Step Two: Create a low ponytail at the back and double over into a horseshoe shape
Step Three: Tie ponytail with a stray piece of fabric – we suggest re-using a piece from an old silk scarf
Step Four: Secure the style with a piece of elastic underneath
Step Five: Use Tecni.ART Pli directly onto a blusher brush and sweep over the hair from front to back to get rid of any fly-aways
Step Six: Finish off the look with Tecni.ART Infinium spray to set the style in place
The Poolside, Doubled-Up Ponytail
“Hair (by Adam Reed from Percy&Reed for Barbara Casasola) was swept back like our models had just emerged from a sun-dappled pool.” – Bella Blissett, Beauty Journalist
Re-create the look:
Step One: Prep hair with Tecni.ART Pli
Step Two: Blow-dry in and leave to set
Step Three: Using your fingers, use a spray or two of Tecni.ART Crystal Gloss to pull hair into a mid to low pony and give it extra shine
Step Four: Tie the ponytail into even sections (two to three dependent on length of hair)
Step Five: Tease hair out to give ponytail sections some volume
The Low Pony
“A really streamlined look with a very clean low ponytail”– Johanna Cree-Brown at Trevor Sorbie for Hakaan Yildirim
Re-create the look:
Step One: Prep the roots and mid lengths with Tecni.ART Full Volume mousse and blow-dry back
Step Two: Lightly backcomb the top of the hair for shape
Step Three: Brush hair back with a comb into a low ponytail and secure with elastic
Step Four: Tecni.ART Glue is used to brush the hairline back and should be blended into the hair
Step Five: Wrap a two inch section of hair around the ponytail and secure with pins
Step Six: Finish by roughing up the ponytail slightly and finishing with Tecni.ART Infinium spray
