Get Adidas By Stella McCartney’s SS14 Sports Luxe Hair

The adidas by Stella McCartney Spring/Summer 2014 collection was all about high performance, and the hair was no exception. Aveda's Global Creative Director Antoinette Beenders created a “perfectly prepped to perform” ponytail and bun with braided detail for the aerial yoga artists, dancers, spinners, runners and synchronized swimmers that debuted the collection.

  1. 1

    Step 1 prep and prepare the hair
    Aveda Damage Remedy™ Daily Hair Repair and Smooth Infusion™ Style Prep

    Prep the hair according to texture. Use Damage Remedy™ Daily Hair Repair to protect the hair from the heat of hairdryers and flat irons. Use Smooth Infusion™ Style Prep on top to smooth hair and help tackle humidity.

  2. 2

    Step 2 section hair and blowdry straight
    T3 hair dryer and Aveda paddle brush

    Section hair, starting from the back and blow dry straight with a large round brush, brushing the hair in the same direction at the nape of the neck.

  3. 3

    Step 3 use a flat iron to smooth hair
    Aveda Air Control™ Hair Spray

    Use a flat iron to smooth the hair and spritz Air Control™ on each section of the hair for a strong but barely-there hold.

  4. 4

    Step 4 guide hair in to a ponytail
    T3 hair straighteners

    Guide the hair back into a ponytail and secure tightly with millinery elastic. Comb through the length of the ponytail and smooth through again with a flat iron for a perfectly groomed finish.

  5. 5

    Step 5 create a braid and wrap around the hair tie
    Aveda Control Force™ Hair Spray

    For the ponytail look, take a small section from the length of the ponytail and braid. Then wrap it around the base of the ponytail and secure with grips. Finish with a mist of Aveda Control Force™ Hair Spray (for the bun look, skip this step and go straight to Step 6).

  6. 6

    Step 6 braid the ponytail and wrap into a bun
    Aveda Control Force™ Hair Spray

    For the bun look, braid the length of the ponytail and begin to wrap around base of elastic. Pin in place. Finish with a mist of Aveda Control Force™ Hair Spray for hold and glossy texture.

Final Result

Whether you opt for the low bun or subtle braided ponytail, the high-shine sports-luxe finish will look great and will withstand a high-performance workout.
