Knowing full well Thompson was giving fashion with a capital F, Redway sought to complement the dramatic silhouette of her gown. “We like mixing hard and soft elements for balance and with the dress color and tulle, I wanted to make the hair feel sleek and romantic, but with a bit of edge with the intricate finishings,” says Redway of the updo, a winding and knotted low ponytail design with a wet-shine finish courtesy of TRESemme’s Ultra Defining gel and a setting veil of Nexxus Comb Thru Finishing Mist.
The style defied gravity, spellbinding at every angle for Thompson’s pretty in pink moment. “We love drama!” says Thompson of collaborating with Redway, who has given her everything from a 12-foot latex whip braid to a braided cowboy hat and horseshoe updo for the annual event. “We always like to push boundaries—and what’s possible in a ponytail!”
