Step-by-Step: Tomboy Ponytail

What better place for fashion week than the fashion capital of the world? Last week, models headed to Italy for the second stop on the fashion week tour: Milan. Prada's SS18 show capitalized on combining baggy, masculine clothing with feminine detail and accents. To complement the looks, Redken Global Creative Director Guido Palau (@guidopalau) created disheveled tomboy ponytails.

Get the Look:

  1. Starting with natural, dry hair, create a low side part with fingers.
  2. Use Redken Wax Blast 10 for added texture, softly spraying it on top of the head and through the lengths and ends.
  3. Use fingers to create a piecy fringe, swooping bangs across the forehead to the right side. Pull sideburn pieces forward to emphasize around the ear.
  4. Gather lengths into a ponytail and secure with a black elastic.
  5. Use Redken Forceful 23 to tame flyaways and finish the look. Spray Redken Wax Blast 10 into ponytail lengths for additional texture.
