Whether you’re walking the streets of Manhattan, or down the runway, during New York Fashion Week, you’re bound to find beauty looks that inspire you. And backstage at Chromat, was no exception.

We know it’s only September, and that we’re a long way from festival season, but we’ve already decided on a hairstyle for the music and fun-filled fetes next spring.

Hairstylist elevated one of our favorite festival looks for the Chromat SS2020 NYFW show, by gathering hair into bubble ponytails. But you may better know them as afro puffs.

“The look is for a sporty, fun, and confident woman who isn’t afraid to play with her style and express her creative flair,” says Justine Marjan, TRESemme NYFW Stylist. Luckily, that describes Black women everywhere perfectly.

To up the ante on the popular hairstyle, and to get the details for recreating this reimagined look, keep reading.

Step 1: Start by gathering a triangular section of hair at the front hairline and spray  TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hair Spray Hold Level 4: Extend at roots to create a strong foundation.

Step 2: Brush the section into a ponytail using a toothbrush

Step 3: Tease the roots of the mini ponytail and spray TRESemméBetween Washes Volumizing Dry Shampoo and massage throughout for added volume and brush over it to create a bubble-like shape.

Step 4: Clip the section away and create another triangular pony beneath the first and secure with an elastic.

Step 5: On the last loop of the elastic while securing, add the above bubble pony and secure with another elastic.

Step 6: Repeat throughout the length of the hair and duplicate on the other side for a double bubble pony look, or just keep centered for one larger bubble pony.

Step 7: Use French pins and bobby pins to shape the bubbles throughout.

Step 8: Spray TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hair Spray Hold Level 4: Extend onto a toothbrush to smooth flyaways on the sides of the head for hair outside of the bubbles.
