We asked Pavel Vahan, creative director of the Le Colon Beauty Institute, about how beautifully long hair is gathered.
Classic low beam
Start doing your hair by dividing your hair into two parts: the front and the back of the head. In this case, the parting runs along the “equator of the head” from ear to ear. Comb the hair of the occipital zone in layers, starting from the crown (while leaving the ponytails without combing). It is important to treat each layer with dry shampoo before combing – this will create the effect of volume even if you have thin hair. Then tie your combed hair into a low ponytail and twist into a bun in a clockwise direction. Hide the tip of the tail in the resulting ring of hair. Fix the beam with invisibility at the base of the beam. Divide the hair remaining on the face into a straight or asymmetrical parting, smooth it with a brush (preferably with natural bristles) and apply styling cream. Carefully cover and “wrap” the previously made bundle, fix with invisible ones.
How long will it take: 10-15 minutes.
A regular low ponytail on long hair looks sloppy – the hair becomes electrified and sticks to the back. A scythe tail is another matter. To do this, apply styling gel from roots to nape and pull your hair into a low ponytail. Hide the elastic with a strand of hair curled around it. Emphasis on smoothness and wetness at the roots. Braid the tail itself into a classic tight braid, leaving 5-10 centimeters free at the ends. Rub some gel in your palms and run them along the entire length of the braid so that it shines and does not frizz.

The secret to a beautiful tall tail is that it has two tails. If you collect all the hair in one, the tail will go down under the weight, stretching at the forehead and concealing the volume. We will go the other way. Start styling by dividing your hair into two sections – from ear to ear. Having smoothed the hair with a brush, gather it high on the crown of the head, moving it away from the face and temporal zones, fix with an elastic band. On the back of the head, make a small pile, spray the hair with a dry shampoo and also, using a brush, attach this part of the hair to the formed ponytail. Fix the hairstyle with two bobbins threaded through the hair tie: place the first bobby pin at the base of the ponytail, then twist the elastic tightly around the two-piece ponytail and add a second bobby pin. Hide the gum itself with a strand twisted at the base of the tail.
How long will it take: 15 minutes.
If you walked around with curls yesterday, and today your hairstyle has lost its volume, but retained the curls, make a new one out of it. This is Malvina, familiar to many from childhood. All that is required is to remove the hair from the face and collect it in a ponytail at the crown of the head, leaving the ends loose. Velvet or satin ribbons and even a silk scarf can be added as accessories. If the roots look greasy, pre-treat them with dry shampoo, but not too much, so that you do not have to comb and spoil the curls, for which everything was started.
How long will it take: 5 minutes.
Bundle with a braid
Divide your hair into two sections. Bring the front part temporarily at the bangs in a ponytail. Lower your head down and begin to weave a “spikelet” braid, moving from bottom to top – from the neckline to the crown of the head, grabbing all the hair into this spikelet. On the crown of the head, fix the base of the spikelet and its tip with a hair elastic. Twist the remaining hair into a bun and secure it with invisibility. Release your hair at the crown, comb and wrap it around the bun. A pigtail on the back of the head will get rid of the “cockerels” that often appear when creating a high bun on long hair.
How long will it take: 15 minutes.
