Letting Go of a Lifelong Hairstyle
After wearing a ponytail for years, this natural beauty finally gets the sophisticated hairstyle she wanted
Meet Sameena, 31. She was the queen of the ponytail, but she really wanted a new style -- one that she could easily pull together on her own every day. Over the years, Sameena's hair routine hadn't changed beyond getting regular trims and the occasional blow out.
"Since my son was born, I haven't had much time to make myself over or do anything special," said Sameena. "As a stay-at-home mom, I've had haircuts, but they've just been quick trims and maybe a blow out. This was my chance to get a new style."
Beyond changing her same old ponytail routine, Sameena wanted a new look for an upcoming trip to visit friends and family in India.
"I'm visiting my home country in a few weeks and I'll be attending a lot of parties, events, and weddings," said Sameena. "It'll be great to have a new look when I see friends and family."
The team at Cristophe Salon in Beverly Hills listened to Sameena's ideas about a new style and worked up a program that would transform her look from permanent mom ponytail to party in a few simple steps. Click to see Sameena's hairstyle makeover.
