Using just a few key products, you can recreate this futuristic ponytail, and totally rock it to the office to impress your work mates!

“My job as a hairdresser is to update the ponytail to make it more relevant for today’s woman,” says Guido. We think he’s succeeded, and here’s a step-by-step guide to achieve this elegant look yourself: 

  1. Apply a penny-sized amount of Redken Satinwear 02, $36, prepping blow-dry lotion to damp hair and comb through.
  2. Using a fine-tooth comb, create a deep side part.
  3. Blowdry hair straight using a boar bristle brush.
  4. Brush hair back into a low ponytail, using a boar bristle brush to smooth out any bumps.
  5. Secure ponytail at the base of the head using a small black elastic.
  6. Flatiron the length of the ponytail until it is straight and smooth.
  7. Finish with a generous mist of Redken Forceful 23, $36, super strength hairspray all over the top of the head to create a shiny, sleek look.
