Step-by-Step: Redken on the Runway with Dior

(Redken Global Director Guido Palau)

Debuting a collection of chic day and night wear, including trench coats, evening gowns and blazers, Dior Couture hit the runway at Paris Fashion Week to pay homage to the legend himself, Mr. Christian Dior. Complimenting the ethereal intricacy of the fall collection, Redken Global Director Guido Palau styled the models hair to match the show's subtle theme: travel. 

In this step-by-step, Palau walks us through a simple, windswept ponytail perfect for your fashion-forward clients. The hair is a very simple ponytail that’s a little bit windswept. There’s a romance to this girl—she’s traveled, so it’s a bit disheveled. The look is easy and cinematic," Palau says.

Get the look: 

  • Prep hair with Redken All Soft Shampoo and Conditioner. Allow to air dry.
  • Spray Redken Wind Blown 05 throughout the roots to the ends to add additional texture and grip.
  • Using your fingers, comb hair to a low, clean side part for a bit of a masculine edge.
  • Using two different curling irons, curl throughout your lengths for added, irregular texture.
  • Secure the hair into a low, soft ponytail with a black elastic.
  • Taking one small section of hair, wrap your hair around the black elastic and secure with a bobby pin to hold.
