Redken’s MFW FW 2014 Prada Recap




Hair by Guido, Redken Creative Consultant


The hair for Prada is actually identical to the look Redken Creative Consultant Guido created for the eight women that were featured in the men’s show. The Fall/Winter 2014 women’s wear show was meant to be a continuation or a second act to the men’s show, so the continuity of the hairstyles helped bridge the two collections together. Guido coated the hair from root to ends with flex move ability 05 and then used his hands, rather than a comb, to gather the hair into a low, tight bun.

“The Prada look features a very basic idea of hair. The ballerina-esque bun is minimal, imperfect and really shows off the model’s unique features. I was inspired by Visconti films and ballerina dancers, who are often incredibly elegant but severe in many ways. Dancers always work with severity, which is why there is tightness to the hairstyle. Each of these girls is their own character, and I think the performance hair and makeup, paired with the Prada collection, makes it seem as if the dancers have changed their clothing, but left their hair and makeup untouched. There is something very elegant and sophisticated about this narrative.” -Guido, Redken Creative Consultant
