Redken’s NYFW FW 2014 Marc Jacobs Recap




Hair by Guido, Redken Creative Consultant


This season, Redken Creative Consultant Guido created a very modern shaped bob, which seems new in a way for Marc Jacobs. In the past, Guido has done choppy, punk inspired styles for this show. The cut is quite blunt, but the style and finish stems from a high-end conception of hair that requires an immaculate finish. The use of wigs only added another level of perfection to this chic hairstyle.

“The idea of tonality played heavily into the whole design aesthetic for Marc Jacobs. When Marc and I met to discuss the hairstyle, he presented a very clear conception of the color swatches and makeup shades that he had in mind. As a result, the tonality of the haircolor, the makeup and the clothing were all paired together to give a monochromatic hue from head to toe.” -Guido, Redken Creative Consultant
