Inspired by the modern day woman, Redken Global Styling Director Guido created a polished, modern ponytail for Diesel’s Spring/Summer 2015 show. Guido achieved this classic ready-to-wear style using Redken’s satinwear 02 prepping blow-dry lotion to blow the hair out straight, and then comb it back into a smooth low ponytail with a deep side part. To add a futuristic feeling, he finished the look with a liberal misting of Forceful 23 super strength hairspray to create a lacquer-like effect.
"My job as a hairdresser is to update the ponytail to make it more relevant for today’s woman. This ponytail that I created for Diesel is very groomed and classic, but slightly futuristic. The two distinct textures – shiny and matte – and the deep side part make it a very depersonalized, exact look. I used satinwear 02 to blowdry the hair super straight, and then created a deep side part before brushing the hair back into a low ponytail. To create the lacquered effect, I liberally sprayed forecful 23 on the top of the hair, making it feel a bit more minimal and modern."
