Get The Halloween “Ethereal Veil” Hairstyle: Tips from Pantene Global Stylist Ambassador, Sam McKnight

Forget the costumes: Halloween is the perfect excuse to dress up your hair! The way to stand out from the competition or party is taking a cue from the runway. Pantene Global Stylist Ambassador, Sam McKnight, created this mystically ethereal hair style for Vivienne Westwood’s S/S ’12 Gold Label show in Paris. Now you can be the trend-setter at this year’s Halloween festivities!

Get the “Ethereal Veil” look with step by step tips from Sam McKnight, Global Stylist Ambassador for Pantene Pro-V:

1. Start with freshly washed and conditioned hair, using Pantene Pro-V Medium-Thick Hair Solutions Breakage to Strength Shampoo and Conditioner to create the perfect base.

2. Next give your hair a boost by applying the Pantene Pro-V Fine Hair Style Triple Action Volume Moussethroughout. Then blow-dry smooth using a flat bristle brush, concentrating on smoothing the length of the hair with the brush for a soft result.

3. Once completely dry, create a full circle parting round the circumference of the hair line (just a couple of inches in) and let the loose hair fall down and create a ‘veil’ around the hair line.

4. Create 2-3 diagonal partings at random, and secure each section of hair in to a ponytail and secure with a snag-free elastic.

5. Next braid each pony tail and secure at the end. Loosen the braid a little by pulling it slightly apart with your fingers.

6. Loop each braid back on itself and secure against the original ponytail – use hair clips to hold in place if needed.

7. Apply Pantene Pro-V Restore Beautiful Lengths Smoothing Balm to the ends to smooth away any frizz.

8. Finish the style with a generous spray of Pantene Classic Care Hairspray to keep the look in place.
