Is there anything more gratifying than Gigi Hadid’s hair? It’s full, strong and long. We love it, and obviously so does Christian Siriano, who tapped hair legend Odile Gilbert to create a playful braided ponytail a la the Beverly Hills princess. To copy the look, make sure the braid is positioned just right on the head – not too high – and prep the hair with a texturizing mousse for added volume.

“We love Gigi,” says Odile. “When she has the hair long, she’s beautiful, for sure, but when she has the hair back she’s even more beautiful,” she adds. “It’s very tight hair in a ponytail and finished as a braid.” And ultimately, “it’s simple, yet elegant.”

To achieve the Hadid lady’s style, Odile makes sure hair is cleansed and conditioned before spritzing with the TREsumme Keratin Smooth Heat Protect Spray. She preps using the TRESemme TRES Two Extra Hold Mousse at the roots of the hair and dries hair with the Dyson Supersonic Professional edition, using a round brush to create even further volume. When hair is 80% dry, she applies the Dyson Supersonic gentle drying nozzle for more fullness. Using a round brush, Odile gathers hair back and fastens a ponytail three quarters of the way up the head, securing with an elastic. She uses the Dyson Supersonic professional edition – with the diffuser – to set the ponytail firmly in place. Finally, she twists the ponytail into a loose braid (making sure not to pull too tightly, in order to preserve the texture and body) and pins in place, misting with TRESemme Compressed Micro Hair Mist Spray Level 1: Texture.
