For hair, Redken Creative Consultant Guido Palau brought sophistication and sportiness to the Alexander Wang runway this season, complementing the designer’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Putting a twist on the classic low ponytail, Guido created a modernly futuristic feeling with a very sleek, sporty-inspired pony. Using hardwear 16 super-strong sculpting gel and Diamond Oil High Shine Airy Mist, Guido changed the effect of a simple hairstyle with contrasting wet and dry textures.

“I created this sleek, sporty look by combing hardwear 16 into the hair to achieve a super-glossy, almost silicone-like, head shape, and then left the ponytail dry and natural-looking. Using a black elastic, I secured the ponytail at the base of the head, and then added a second elastic to create a thicker band for a sportier feeling. Then, I left the ponytail natural to add a little bit of richness to the hair and to create contrasting wet and dry textures. I finished the look with Diamond Oil High Shine Airy Mist for a shiny, modern finish.”

Guido Palau, Redken Creative Consultant

Create the Look:

  1. Begin by sectioning dry hair into thirds.
  2. Starting with the bottom section, apply a quarter-sized amount of hardwear 16 super-strong sculpting gel at the scalp. Using a fine-tooth comb, comb through toward the base of the head, pressing firmly against the scalp for a super-smooth look.
  3. Repeat on the two remaining sections of hair, combing the top back into a sleek, low pony without combing any gel into the ponytail. Leave the tail natural to create contrasting textures.
  1. Secure ponytail with an elastic at the base of the head and add a second elastic to create a thicker band with a sportier feel.
  2. Thoroughly spray Diamond Oil High Shine Airy Mist all-over the hair for a very glossy, wet-looking finish.
