In runway shows, we simply can’t understate the importance of the hairstyle that the collection is presented with. It’s the task of expert hairstylists to create looks that will not only go well with the clothes but also be one with the designer’s vision. Redken’s Guido Palau was the one tasked with creating a spring 2014 hairstyle for the Jil Sander show.

Taking inspiration from the designer herself, Guido went for a look that’s modern and minimalist. It features a low ponytail with a few strands loosened around the models face giving it a polished look with some soft texture. This sophisticated look is exactly what a Jil Sander woman would wear and you can do this all by yourself – check out the tutorial after the break.

How to: Jil Sander’s minimalist low ponytail

Prep your hair by applying blow-dry lotion like Redken satinwear 02 from the roots to the lengths of your hair.
Next, blow dry it smooth and straight with the help or a round brush.
Once this is done, create a deep side part (tip: for the Jil Sander show the arch of the eyebrow was used as a guide – align your side part with it).
To tame frizz and to add some shine, apply a bit of hair oil starting in the mid-lengths up to the ends. Redken’s All Soft Argan-6 oil was used at the show.

Gather your hair and tie it into a loose, low ponytail. Use an elastic to secure it at the nape.

Finish your hairstyle by securing it with some wax or hairspray. For the Jil Sander show, Redken’s Wax Blast 10 high impact finishing spray-wax was used.
