Sometimes the simplest updos can be the chicest, and that's exactly what the ultra-romantic, low ponytails at Jenny Packham were — chic in its most minimalist form. See for yourself:

To emphasize the elegance of Packham's mid-17th century-inspired collection, TRESemmé stylist Jeanie Syfu created a soft, loose ponytail with polished ends — and finished each pretty pony off with a satin ribbon that matched the models' gowns.

To get the look at home follow these super-DIY'able steps:

Step 1: Start by applying TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Blow Dry Lotion ($5.39 at throughout the roots and middle portion of damp locks, then spritz TRESemmé Platinum Strength Strengthening Heat Protect Spray ($4.39 at to the ends.

Step 2: Blow dry with a Mason Pearson brush (or any natural bristle brush) for a straight finish

Step 3: Create a part down the center and then section hair in two parts, separating across the back of the head from ear to ear

Step 4: Gently tease the underneath section and along the horizontal line from ear to ear

Step 5: Loosely pull hair into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck, letting hair fall out around the face — this is what will give it that soft, ultra-romantic sensibility. (IE - Wispy, fall-out pieces are a good thing!)

Step 6: Secure with an elastic and finish with a ribbon
