Ready to run.

For an activewear runway, it only makes sense the hairstyling is sleek.

This sports luxe look was created by REDKEN 5TH AVENUE NYC hair directors, Dmitri Papas and Justin Pace, for the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia Active Collection showcase. It's the perfect balance between simple and styled. 

To recreate this look, follow these simple steps:

1. Prep dry hair with REDKEN Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Treatment Primer Cream to nourish the hair and provide essential heat protection.

2. Part the hair into three tiered horizontal sections. Blow-dry each section directionally to create an ultra-smooth finish.

3. Starting from the bottom section and moving up, apply a small amount of REDKEN Diamond Oil Glow Dry Style Enhancing Oil to each section and slick back into a tight, centred ponytail.

4. Join all ponytails together and secure at the nape of the neck. Finish by spraying the hair all over with REDKEN Triple Take 32  Extreme High-Hold Hairspray for lasting hold with a sleek finish.
