Trendsetters/Runway Report Her o Pr oduct Aveda Brilliant Spray-On Shine sp otlights the sleekness of this style. Aveda doubles up on the partings and throws in some odd angles for a new twist on the classic ponytail. H ow do you reinvent the ponytail? At Richard Chai Love, Lead Hairstylist Kevin Ryan is focusing on unusual partings. “The look is super-streamlined; there’s a hint of the futuristic,” he says. “What makes this style interesting is unexpected partings and strange angles. We’re just messing a little with what you’d expect.” Adds Ryan’s cohort in styling, Frank Rizzieri, “We’re calling this ‘futuristic,’ but don’t hang your hat on that. It’s really just sleek and clean.” First, Rizzieri blow-dries in Aveda Pure Abundance Style Prep ( for increased manageability. Then, he sections hair into two—top and bottom—and secures the bottom section into a low-slung ponytail. He then flat-irons and gels the top section, and draws a deep side part that is a “defined angle dictated by each model’s individual hairline,” Rizzieri explains. Some models then receive a second angled parting, which speaks to the “futuristic” feel of this graphic style. After these partings are demarcated and perfected, Rizzieri carefully pulls the top sections back and combines them with the low ponytail. All flyaways scuttle with a few spritzes of Aveda Air Control Hair Spray, some gentle passes of a soft brush and a final coating of Aveda Brilliant Spray-On Shine. And that is how you reinvent the ponytail.
