Hair by Guido, Redken Global Creative Director

 

To complete the darkly romantic woman at Alexander McQueen’s Fall/Winter 2015 runway show, Redken Global Creative Director Guido created a soft, but strategically shaped hairstyle for each girl. Guido created the fantasy-like, fluffy texture by blow drying the hair with Redken’s new Stay High 18 high-hold gel to mousse, and then setting tight pin curls with Redken’s Iron Shape 11 finishing thermal spray. He then brushed out the pin curls and created a structured style suited for each girl’s face shape using Redken’s Forceful 23 super strength hairspray.

 

“The McQueen woman this season is much more romantic and soft than the more futuristic, robotic looks we’ve seen in past seasons. This romantic, melancholy idea was partly inspired by the artworks of the Austrian painter Gustav Klimt.  I created this very fluffy texture, and then sculpted the hair into different shapes based on what looks best with each girl’s face shape. I used Redken’s Stay High 18 to set very tight pin curls, and then brushed them out and sprayed Redken’s Forceful 23 hairspray to hold the different shapes. The finished look really draws attention to the face and enhances each girl’s natural, individual beauty.”
Guido, Redken Global Creative Director
