London Fashion Week: See Swan Lake-inspired Looks for AADNEVIK  by Moroccanoil's Antonio Corral...

The designer was inspired by Swan Lake, so this look needed to make the traditional ballet knot modern and relevant for today’s woman. It is relaxed yet wearable as it is meant to reflect a dancer after spending 12 hours in the theatre.


1. Prep the hair by applying two pumps of Moroccanoil Treatment from root to ends to set the perfect foundation for styling (Moroccanoil Treatment Light for models with blonde or fine hair).

2. Apply Dry Texture Spray all over the hair in a zigzag motion to amplify the dimension of the hair (for coarse hair use Smoothing Lotion to make hair controllable).

3. To create a base for the ponytail, gather hair upwards using the Ceramic Paddle Brush into a vertical point between the crown and hairline, creating a perfect symmetry between the eyes

4. Secure the ponytail with an elasticated hairband.


5. Apply one pump of Smoothing Lotion into palms and caress the product evenly through the lengths of the ponytail to ensure even hydration

6. Loop the ponytail around the elastic, twisting as you wrap to create the knot, and secure the tip with a bobby pin ensuring that it is not visible.

7. Once the structure is complete, deconstruct the appearance by warming Molding Cream in the palm of the hands and with fingertips gently loosening the baby hairs at the nape of the neck and those framing the face.

8. Finish the look with a generous spritz of Luminous Hairspray Medium.
