Beauty Trend: Sleek, Straight And Shiny Hair

Straight, sleek and shiny hair has been showing up all over the Spring 2012 runway shows .  The look is perfect for going from day to night because it is conservative but chic.  Slicking hair back into a low ponytail is one way to try it as long as it is tightly pulled back, straight and shiny.

Renato Campora for Frédéric Fekkai created a simple and sleek look to contrast with Marchesa's Spring 2012 collection.  Campora used a flat iron first then made a side part, pulled half back into a low ponytail and wrapped the other half around the ponytail or into a fishtail braid.  Fekkai Coiff Nonchalant Piecing And Forming Wax was used to make the hair shine and Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray finished off the look
Neil Moodie for Bumble & Bumble created this flat and shiny look at the Ruffian show by flat-ironing the hair, pulling it back into a tight braid and putting on Bumble & Bumble Shine On Finishing Spray 
At Carolina Herrera, hairstylist Orlando Pita prepped hair with Moroccanoil Light, applied Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream to keep it sleek, blow-dried hair straight, put it into a low and simple ponytail and finished with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray
At Donna Karan, hairstylist Eugene Souleiman said about the look he was channeling, "There is no softness here at all.  It's about extreme straight, high gloss and shine.  It looks almost synthetic- I wanted it to look hyper-real."
A shiny and tightly pulled back ponytail was the look at Derek Lam's Spring 2012 show.  Hairstylist, Orlando Pita used the designer's inspiration, Richard Neutra, an architect who uses clean and simple lines and then went on to create a simple and clean look.  Pita is a fan of the ponytail because, "It's universal and works from day, with jeans, to night, with a ball gown."  I agree!
