Backstage at Manning Cartell, chief face painter Natasha Severino told us she was creating a "fresh and youthful look" that had an air of "mysterious sultriness" running throughout. The result? A beautifully iridescent face that featured gorgeous Middle Eastern hues. The hair was equally as exotic, with lead hairstylist Alan White describing the Manning Cartell S/S '11 woman as "a beautiful girl who spends time wondering through the exotic markets of Marrakesh and Tunis." He created a centre-parted, knotted ponytail to perfectly reflect this.

STEP 1: Prep the hair with ghd Maximise Mousse, then apply ghd Sea Spray over the mid-lengths through to the ends to create a dryer texture.
STEP 2: Blow dry hair but try not to stretch it. The texture and volume of the hair is important for the finished look.
STEP 3: Centre part the hair and, using your fingers and a brush pull hair into a low pony at the nape of the neck.
STEP 4: Apply ghd Shining Serum from the top of the ponytail to its mid-lengh. Don't apply it too far along the length of the pony so that the ends are left with a dry texture.
STEP 5: Divide the pony into three sections; two smaller sections on top and the thicker section towards the nape. Tie the two top sections into a knot and pin in place.
STEP 6: Using fingers, texturise the remaining hair. Lightly blow-dry the forehead to release flyaways around the face and finish with a light coating of ghd Ultimate Hairspray.
