Margot Robbie’s striking ponytail look at the highly anticipated Barbie World Premiere was nothing short of a masterpiece. Created by Celebrity Hairstylist Bryce Scarlett, her look was made possible by the extraordinary Redken Acidic Bonding Concentrate line.
The Acidic Bonding Concentrate line, celebrated for its revolutionary hair care science, was key in preparing Robbie's hair for its big moment. Known for its power to significantly improve hair's strength, smoothness, shine and overall health, Redken’s Acidic Bonding Concentrate was the perfect tool for Scarlett to bring the iconic Barbie hair to life.
Scarlett was able to beautifully tame and enhance Robbie's strands by prepping hair with Redken styling products, including Quick and Big Blowout to maximize volume. Locked in for the night with Redken Max Hold Hairspray, this effortlessly chic ponytail style perfectly encapsulates the spirit of Barbie for the World Premiere. See a breakdown of the look and discover the thought behind Scarlett’s iconic look for Margot below.
“I was inspired to do this doll-like ponytail from the 1960s to coordinate with [Robbie’s] stunning, 60s-inspired custom Schiaparelli gown,”Bryce Scarlett said.
- First, prep dry hair by detangling with Tangle Teezer’s The Wide Tooth Comb, which has a dual-sided design for quick, gentle detangling with reduced breakage. Follow by shampooing with Redken Acidic Bonding Concentrate Shampoo, then misting hair with Redken Acidic Bonding Concentrate Lightweight Liquid Conditioner. Before rinsing, brush Redken product through hair using Tangle Teezer’s The Ultimate Detangler for even distribution.
- On freshly washed and detangled hair, apply Redken Quick Blowout from roots to ends to decrease blow dry time and add heat protection layer on top of that with Redken Big Blowout for maximum volume.
- Dry hair in large sections and set in Velcro rollers. Once cooled, section out a ponytail leaving out the two inches of hairline around the entire head using the Tangle Teezer’s The Ultimate Styler, which gives hair a smooth and shiny finish. Smooth back and secure the inner ponytail with hair ties. Set the entire ponytail into 2-inch curls as well as the hairline sections we left out of the ponytail. Once cooled, use Tangle Teezer’s The Ultimate Styler to gently brush out curls and start to shape the bang area and the ponytail into a polished yet full finish. Set the entire look with Redken Max Hold Hairspray for a flexible hold that shines.
