Redken for Diesel SS15
Redken Global Styling Director, Guido Palau, shows us how to recreate the polished, modern ponytail (perfect for chich, low-maintenance office style) from Diesel’s SS15 New York Fashion Week show. The key to this look is the super-deep side parting, for a futuristic, ultra-modern feel.
“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 slick, exact look. I used Redken Satinwear 02 to blow dry 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 Redken Control Addict 28 on the top of the hair, making it feel a bit more minimal and modern.”
Get the look…
Step 1: Prep hair by working a small amount of Redken Satinwear 02 prepping blow-dry lotion to damp locks and comb through.
Step 2: Create a deep side parting using a fine-tooth comb.
Step 3: Blow dry hair straight with a bristle brush.
Step 4: Brush hair back into a low ponytail and smooth out any bumps using a bristle brush before securing the ponytail at the base of the head using a small black elastic.
Step 5: Use heat stylers to smooth the length of the ponytail until it is poker straight.
Step 6: Finish with a generous mist of Redken Control Addict 28 super strength hairspray all over the top of the head to create a shiny, sleek look
