The classic ponytail with a modern twist debuts on the Paris Runways

The ponytail -  Its a style that none of us are strangers to.  Its the go-to style when you're having a not so great hair day, and also the same style for when you are trying to channel your sophisticated side as well. Last week during the second day of shows in Paris, Redken Creative Consultant , Guido gave us Ponytail-Envy with two variations of the universally common hair staple.

Pedro Lourenco

At Pedro Lourenco, the look was a low ponytail at the nape of the neck. “Pedro Lourenco is a young Brazilian designer and we collaborated on a very simple, style for this show to allow the clothes to really make the statement on the runway.”Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Redken Products: Nature’s Rescue Radiant Sea Spray

Create the look:

- On dry hair, spray Nature’s Rescue Radiant Sea Spray all over hair to create light texture

- Create a center part with your finger and pull hair back into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck and secure with an elastic

- Be sure to have a few pieces covering the ears

- Wrap a piece of hair around the elastic and secure with a pin

** Why not try to recreate the make up look as well with a nude barely there lip , minimal eyeshadow in Khaki or Gold - depending on your skin tone , dark brown mascara ( to keep the minimalist look going), and a very pale blush in a pink/coral tone.**

The ponytail was in the form of a single braid at Lanvin - ( every season Guido does some sort of variation of the braid.. Love it!!) . “We wanted to create a very natural look for the collection this season. Sometimes keeping the hair simple and natural makes more of a statement on the runway.” –Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Redken Product: wool shake 08 gel-slush texturizer

Create the look:

- Apply wool shake 08 gel-slush texturizer to dry hair for texture

- Create a center part with your fingers

- Pull hair back and create a braid beginning at the nape of the neck and secure with a clear elastic

- Pull a few pieces out around the face so the braid looks natural and not too polished
** Complete the look with Bold Brows with the help of a brow pencil, Bold Cat-Eye with a Black Eyeliner, Fuschia tinted lip, lengthening , volumizing black mascara. **
