I just saw a video with Patrick McIvor and Fashion Director Nathan Rosenkranz at Patrick McIvor Color Studio on how to show your clients how to style a perfect ponytail that will properly accentuate their highlights!
“Most women with long hair pull it into a ponytail during the summer months and that can lead to awkward color lightening from sun exposure constantly hitting the top layers down the center of the head. The result is similar to a Mohawk effect, lighter down the middle and darker on the sides,” explains Rosenkranz who created the Mohawk Ponytail as a way to control where the sun lightens hair.
Mohawk Ponytail Step-by-Step
