Here's How To Master The Runway-Worthy Ponytail

Sometimes, we really wish we could take you guys with us backstage at Fashion Week. Amidst the hustle and bustle, there's a thrill you get from being backstage watching the beauty masters craft their hair and makeup creations, and explain not only their inspiration, but also their best secrets for getting the look.
