Hair Trend: Metallic Ponytails

Metal is taking the spotlight in fashion and beauty, we saw Topshop Unique apply gold leaf to the hair for their Spring 2012 show and Cynthia Rowley showcase metallic extensions during her Spring 2011 show.

Now Markus Lupfer has set a new Spring/Summer 2013 trend with metallic ponytails, showcased during his Spring 2013 runway show at London Fashion Week. Lupfer was channelling space age platinum-haired pale girls, sporting silver metallic ponytails.

The original idea came from hair director Alex Brownsell, whom styled the ponytails which were inspired by ethereal mermaids. Brownsell kept the top of the hair textured while the ponytails were straightened and doused in hairspray and glitter for a wet, glistening and glamourous look. The overall idea was to have the finish product looking similar to a fish fin.

Keep an eye out for this innovative trend, Chanel and Roberto Cavalli are sure to try it.
