Redken Creative Consultant Guido created a sexy, glossy low ponytail for the Fall 2013 Victoria Beckham show at the New York Public Library this morning. The look complemented the designer’s very luxurious, designed collection, adding another dimension and “breathing a little fresh air” into the otherwise very tailored look as a whole.

“This style is meant to look very easy, almost accidental, but note the emphasis is on the texture- I wanted it to look really drenched in shine, not quite totally wet, but almost. I in fact put as much thought into creating a simple look like this as I do with more complicated ones; it’s all about the nuances, like the texture. This is the kind of glossy texture many designers want to see right now when they want shine, it’s not the super shiny blown-out red carpet look, it’s more subtle and casual. Not to say a more traditional shiny hair look isn’t also a good look, it’s just important for women to have options, and this shiny texture is another great idea to add to a low pony.”

Get the Hair Look by Guido for Redken

Create the Look:

1. Start by blow-drying hair with your fingers, not a brush, dragging fingers through as you dry so that the end result is straight but not perfect and retains a natural texture.

2. When dry, apply Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine  from lengths to ends, adding a few drops into your palm (number of drops depending on hair length & thickness) and then emulsifying in your hands and applying all over.

3. For an extra glossy finish, next apply shine flash 02 glistening mist all over.

4. Finally, gather hair into a loose low pony with a messy, undefined side part. Pull out some pieces around the face and leave one ear exposed.

**Note, Guido used Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine on the models today to create extra gloss on the runway. There are two versions: Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine is for medium hair textures, and the other Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine Intense is for thicker textures – both launch in May 2013  (Note from CC: BOO! HISS! I want it now…)

    The hard reality of franchise financing is actually
    very simple – that is that if you have a reasonable personal investment into the
    business ( we’ll discuss’ reasonable’ later ) , and a decent work and credit history that are some great options
    for franchise financing in Canada. If you’re thinking of making an offer
    on a property without an actual rent roll or financials – see if you can get
    the “average” rent per unit and number of units.
    In this case they will hold the item and return it to you once you’ve finished making your
    payments. This concept takes a crowd of people lending you
    small amounts equaling the amount you need.
