This season begs for a certain kind of ease and for a subdued take on elegance, both in the fashion and in the hair department, and luckily getting there is not all that complicated. By borrowing some inspiration from Celine’s fall / winter 2014 presentation, the simple and minimal are immediately being translated to modern sophistication, with the classic low ponytail updated to an ultra-cool twisted interpretation.

Using the steps provided by Redken Global Styling Director Guido Palau, you will be able to add this sleek style to your repertoire of 2014 hairstyles to rock all throughout the year, dressed up or down. Find all the guiding steps, right after the break.

How to: the minimal twisted ponytail at Celine

Begin working on this style with your hair damp. To protect the hair and help prevent breakage, apply a heat protective product all over the hair and proceed combing it straight back. At Celine, Guido Palau used the Redken Pillow Proof Blowdry Express Primer.
Next, proceed to blow dry your hair using a natural bristle brush, right after applying a volumizing foam to add lift at the roots. Backstage at Celine, Guido Palau used the Redken Guts 10 Root-Targeted Volume Spray Foam.
To assure the texture and grip defining this sleek hairstyle, proceed to also apply a smooth-down texturizing cream at the roots. Guido Palau recommends the Redken Flex Mess Around 10 Disrupting Cream-Paste for best results.

Using your fingers, gather the hair into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck; twist the ponytail up until it twists over itself and secure the resulting style with an elastic matching the colour of your hair, making sure to leave the ends of the ponytail out.
As a final step, apply both a super strength hairspray on the ponytail, and an aerosol hair spray to enhance the style with a high-gloss finish. Guido Palau used the Redken Forceful 23 Super Strength Hairspray and the Redken Shine Flash 02 Glistening Mist on the models’ hair.
