This sleek, graphic one from the Osklen Spring/Summer 2014 show is a perfect example of a sophisticated look for your wedding day – or a big evening out. Aveda Global Creative Director Antoinette Beenders created this "high performance ponytail" to play off the luxurious yet urban collection designed by Oskar Metsavaht. “The collection also features a lot of v-shapes in the necklines, which we recreated in the shape of the hair in the back," said Beenders. "It’s a very luxurious collection, so we wanted the hair to be luxurious as well.” Here’s how to get the look at home. Seriously – it’s totally possible. (Or, just do as I do and print a photo and shove it under your hairdresser’s nose. You decide.)
