HOW TO: Sleek Ponytail By Guido For Bottega Veneta

Maggie Mulhern | February 24, 2014 | 8:45 AM

The Fashion Week ponytail strikes again, but Guido, Redken Creative Consultant, created a sleek, powerful pony that enhanced the overall look.

Guido placed extensions in the hair before pulling back into a mid level ponytail which he then flat ironed and cut blunt. "A bit of a departure from previous seasons," says Guido. "In the past the hairstyles were easier, softer and more natural. A sort of 90's minimalism inspired me, so the hair is simple with blunt lines. Hair extensions were used to create a very long fake ponytail that resembles the same thickness and consistency of a horse's tail. There is certainly an intended element of artificiality to the hair."
