Frederic Fekkai paired with celebrity stylist Renato Campora to create these modern twists on the classic ponytail to be shared here with you.  Which one will you be sporting in the new year?

Top tip: Apply Fekkai Full Blown Volume™ Styling Whip throughout the hair until the entire head is damp. 2 Blow dry the hair using a large round brush. 3 Once the hair is mostly dry, straighten hair with a flat iron, separating into sections, while applying Frédéric Fekkai Essential Shea Tame and Style Pot de Crème to add shine. 4 Create a deep, exaggerated part to the right side of the head.  

Top tip: Depending on hair length and fullness, add the appropriate hair extensions. Pull the hair back into a low ponytail. Secure hair with a band, and spray with Fekkai Coiff™ Sheer Hold Hairspray for added hold. 2 Take a small section of hair from the underside of the ponytail and wrap it around to conceal the band. 3 Secure the look by blow drying the ponytail to lock in the straightness of the hair.
