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. Well, at Alice + Olivia's spring '13 show, we got to do just that — sort of.
We took our film crew backstage for a one-on-one with L'Oréal Professionnel session artist Benjamin Mohapi as he created the flirty '50s ponytail for the show. In this cool video tutorial, you'll get to go backstage pre-show and watch as Benjamin creates this chic look, complete with step-by-step instructions and some really cool insider tricks. Like we said, it's kinda like you're there with us.
