Fashion week continues in Sydney at MBFWA and once again Showpony Hair Extensions were a huge success! Showpony Professional were involved in 5 different shows! See backstage and runway shots as well as How to’s below.

Show #1: Gail Sorronda

The amazing hair director Jon Pulitano created mermaid like luscious waves using Showpony Hair Extensions for the Gail Sorronda show to compliment the dark romantic collections that were showcased. See how he created the little mermaid inspired look:



1. Prep the hair with Redken pillow proof express primer then saturate the hair with Redken rootful and blow dry inwards to the back of the head keeping the sides sleek to the head.
Once hair is dry take a section from the top about five inches wide back comb form the crown to the from leaving the front hairline out, then spray pillow proof 2 day extender into the back combed area once brushed out to give longevity and helps maintain height.

2. Then using fashion work 12 spray the sides liberally and use a hair dryer to set the sides flat and going in a backward direction. Once set secure with a clip. To create water inspired wave at the back of the hair, take fine random sections and plait the hair leaving the ends out.

3. Spray the braids with iron silk and the iron to set. Take the braids out and apply Redken smooth lock heat glide throughout the entire back area this will give a separated texture. Finish the look with Redken forceful 23 hairspray.

Show # 2:  Ginger & Smart

The amazing Richard Kavanagh created a low-slung ponytail – that showed off the polished and effortless signature look for Ginger & Smart. Watch the how to:



1. Start by blow-drying the hair with diamond oil and new pillow proof primer to give hair lustre and softness. Rootful around the parting and hairline before blow-drying helps control the shape.

2. A centre part with little height at the crown is created by distributing the hair back from the high point of the head and a narrow profile at the nape makes it feel new, cool and easy.

3. Cover the elastic with a strap of hair from the pony and secure it with forceful hairspray.

Show # 3: We are Handsome

We Are Handsome’s edgy yet summery swimwear collection were styled with two variations of a structured faux hawk. Created by Hair Director Garreth Lenagh.



1. Start by prepping the hair with KMS hair Play Sea Salt Spray and KMS Add Volume Styling foam. Blow dry side sections away from the face. Blow dry top crown section with a medium round brush, straight up from the head.

2. Take a side parting from above the temples, where the head starts to curve, around to the crown, repeat on the other side. Clip away this section. Make a verticle parting from the middle of the crown down to the nape creating two equal sections. Apply 1 pump of Tame Frizz smoothing lotion to mid lengths and ends. French braid your first section, one inch from the part and secure at nape with clear elastics, repeat on the other side.

3. Clip in extensions between the braids, measure wefts to sit in between 2 french braids. Apply small amount of glue to the top of the weft place in between braids and set with cool air. Continue up the head leaving 1cm sections between wefts.

4. Release top section, lightly tease hair at the roots starting at the crown section and working forward. Lightly brush the top section to conceal teasing. Secure shape using KMS free shape 2 in 1. Mist the hair with dry touch up to create polish.
