Actress Lily Rabe recently attended the premiere of The Big Short in NYC looking stunning in a color-blocked dress, bright red lips, and sleek ponytail to match. Celebrity stylist Nate Rosenkranz for Alterna Haircare created the ultra-smooth style which works equally well dressed up for holiday parties, or laid back for a cozy day at home. Help your client achieve the look with Rosenkranz's how-to, below!

Get the Look:

  1. Starting with wet hair, apply Alterna Haircare Bamboo Beach Sun-Kissed Smooth Illuminating Cream for a little hold and shine. Establish a right side part and blow-dry the hair from the root directionally towards the back of the head with a flat boar bristle brush.
  2. After all of the hair is dry, gather into a low, smooth ponytail just above the hairline in the back of the head.
  3. Take a small section of hair from the underside of the ponytail. Spray this section with Alterna Haircare Caviar Anti-Aging Working Hair Spray then flat iron. Wrap the section around the base of the ponytail to cover the elastic band, secure with a bobby pin, and spray again with the Caviar Working Hair Spray. Hit the section with the blow dryer to dry up the spray extra fast.
  4. Apply a small amount of Alterna Haircare Caviar CC Cream over the top layer of hair and ponytail for extra smoothness and shine.
  5. Use a flat iron to put a slight bend in the “bang section."
  6. Finally, very gently “rough up” the hair for a casual “lived-in” feel without losing the overall refined look. Finish with the Caviar Working Hair Spray.
