Models sported sleek ponytails at
Ralph Lauren, created by Redken creative consultant Guido Palau. First, he blow dried hair straight, then used his hands to bring strands together into a ponytail. To add a sophisticated touch, he covered the elastic by wrapping a small section of hair around it and topped everything off with hairspray.

Since the hair was blow-dried with a diffuser, Malige used dry shampoo to give it a wave. To add volume, hair was back-combed at the crown and set with hairspray.

He flatironed models's locks, secured it in a mid-height ponytail, wrapped a leather piece around the elastic, and then added bands to create tiers. He completed the look with faux bangs.
