Modern straight hair

Redken Creative Consultant Guido created a natural, modern-chic hairstyle at the Akris Fall 2012 show. He emphasized the juxtaposition of the rich, colorful collection that was inspired by expressionist painter Franz Kline, with a super simple hairstyle. How to get the look:
  • On damp hair, create a clean center part.
  • Apply Redken Body Full Volume Amplifier to the roots and blow dry hair straight just at the roots; let the rest of the hair air-dry naturally.
  • Tuck both sides behind ears.
  • Apply Redken powder refresh 01 from mid-lengths to ends and then apply a bit of Redken powder grip 03 at the ends to create some texture.


Simple and sexy hair

Redken Creative Consultant Guido created a sexy yet simple look at the Fall 2012 Roberto Cavalli in Milan. The matte, textured hairstyle complemented the very dark makeup, exotic prints, and leathers of the collection itself.
"For Cavalli, the girls all have very long hair, and it’s a little bit hippie-inspired, and of course, very sexy," is how Guido described the Cavelli show. "The hair is very simple and very real. The clothing is very dark in color. Add in the leather gloves and Pat’s eye (makeup), and the look is almost Gothic. Also, the length makes it dramatic, but what I tried to do was not pump any kind of real wave into the hair, keeping it very cool, very glamorous. I didn’t want to over-style the hair."
How to get the look:
  • Create a center part.
  • Apply Nature’s Rescue Radiant Sea Spray from mid-lengths to ends.
  • Let hair air dry naturally.


A glamorous chignon

Guido's glamorous chignon for Yves St. LaurantRedken Creative Consultant Guido created hair styles with drop-dead glamour for the Yves Saint Laurent Spring/Summer 2012. “YSL has such a heritage that it’s always its own reference,” Guido said, talking about his inspiration for the show. “This is a very glamorous, very womanly woman. It’s a wet look hairstyle, with all of the hair kept away from the face, like an actress. Raking the fingers through the hair adds a richness to it.”

·        Apply satinwear 02 ultimate blow-dry lotion to damp hair and rough dry.
·        Apply full frame 07 all-over volumizing mousse, rake hair back with fingers away from the face, and tie with an elastic band.
