Backstage for Hair at Arnsdorf SS 2010-11 at RAFW 2010

RAFW 2010: Ruched-Up Ponytails at Arnsdorf

Arnsdorf designer Jade gave Hair Director Todd a few different briefs to start with, but eventually they narrowed it down to a beautiful, soft low pony. The main brief was a "'70s feel without going 'there' too much." It was to be "soft and fresh," which is exactly what the gorgeous style that graced the runway was. Todd was quick to point out though, as with anything that looks easy, there's often a lot of hard work that goes into it! He blow-dried Redken's Touch Control into the hair to add body and grip, then parted the hair in the centre. Next up, he pulled it back and secured it in a low pony, being sure to cover the ears (very important for the '70s feel) and then set upon the most vital part: ruching up the pony. Todd sprayed Workforce on the hair, which helps create that messy texture, and then grabbed random sections and, starting at the tip of the hair, gently pushed upwards to create that slept-in, bed-head feel. If you're looking to re-create the style at home, remember to ditch the brushes. You'll get better results just using your fingers.
