Redken Creative Consultant Guido, always looking to put a new spin on the ponytail, created a futuristic, modern interpretation of one at the on runway with from Alexander Wang. The style was sleek and even robotic in front, but the back was all natural, disheveled texture with a bit of a wave.
"I'm always challenging myself to update classics, and the look at Alexander Wang today is a ponytail with a different point of view. Alex wanted a small head this season, so this started as a low pony kept close to the head. But I then added a strip of tape down the center part which makes the style really become more than a simply pony. The severity of the tape almost makes you look twice – which makes sense with the collection."
