Beautifully presented redhead ponytails reign supreme at Stella McCartney’s Pre-Fall 2015 Presentation in New York City.

Stella McCartney, a proud redhead herself, chose pristine, clean, fresh-looking hair for the Stella McCartney’s pre-fall 2015 presentation held at James Burden mansion in New York City last week. McCartney’s pieces are luxurious yet wearable and the hairstyles of the models had to complement old-world styles in modern silhouettes and fabrics. Aveda Global Creative Director, Antoinette Beenders prepped the hair to look gorgeous and healthy and then styled it into an easy, low laying ponytail.

“Stella wanted beautiful, squeaky clean hair to complement her collection,” said Beenders. “To create this look, we prepped hair with [Aveda] Pure Abundance Style Prep and dried it using a fine-toothed comb. This created a shiny and healthy style…” 

Get the look in 6 easy steps:

Step 1: After prepping hair with a shampoo and conditioner, mist towel-dried hair with Aveda Pure Abundance Style Prep in small sections.

Step 2: With a fine-tooth comb, blow dry hair back and away from the face.

Step 3: Taking top sections of the hair, clip hair to the sides to focus attention to the under layers of hair. With a 1″ curling iron, loosely curl the under layers of hair, half way to the head. Pull and twist curls to create natural looking waves and set with a light mist of Air Control Hair Spray.

Step 4: Gather hair in a loose ponytail at the nape and secure tight with an elastic that matches the hair. SHOP: REDHEAD HAIR TIES.

Step 5: With five drops of a hair oil of your choice, gently mess up the ends of the ponytail and top of the hair for a naturally messy appearance that shows the dimension of the hair’s shine.
