This week, 3Labs Studio in Los Angeles played host to surfers, spinners, swimmers and runners who all modeled the latest collection for Adidas designed by Stella McCartney that celebrates women who embrace variety to challenge their bodies and minds.

 

To coincide with the strong, sleek clothes, Aveda Artist Frank Rizzieri created two sporty-chic hairstyles that spoke to the vision of the collection. One of these looks is the “Prized Pony,” a soft, touchable ponytail.

 

“A sleek ponytail is the perfect low maintenance choice for any workout,”
Frank said. “We were able to add a little more polish to it by covertly wrapping a piece of hair around the elastic at the nape of the neck.”

The other style is the “Parallel Plaits,” two matching braids on each side of the head.


“We had to create a style that would stay put during a high impact workout,” Frank said. “With a little assistance from Control Force™ Firm Hold Hair Spray we were able to add lasting hold and humidity defense to set the style.”

HOW TO GET THE LOOK OF THE “PARALLEL PLAITS”:

 

Step 1

Apply new Damage Remedy™ Split End Repair to the ends of completely dry hair to instantly draw separated ends back together.

 

Step 2

With a wide tooth comb, create a middle part from the forehead to the nape of neck. Divide hair into right and left sections.

 

Step 3

Gather three small sections of hair from the forehead on the right side and begin to French braid hair slowly so that the braid gets thicker.

 

Step 4

Secure the end of French braid with a thin elastic and repeat on the other side.

 

STEP 5

Spray Control Force™ Firm Hold Hair Spray directly onto a fine tooth comb and finish the look by gently combing flyaways into place over the entire head.
