Wedding season is among us, and whether you’re the bride-to-be, a bridesmaid or a guest, your look isn’t complete without the perfect hairstyle! From elegant updos to windswept styles, Redken Global Creative Director Guido shares his looks straight from the runways of Fall/Winter 2015 Fashion Week that you can recreate for the big day.
The Elegant Updo
“This Oscar de la Renta style is very elegant and classic – very uptown chic, but there’s a sense of ease to it. I prepped the hair first with Redken’s Stay High 18 high-hold gel to mousse. The key here is to secure the French twist at the back of the neck, making sure it’s flat and tight against the head, which creates a super beautiful profile.”
A Charming Chignon
“I achieved this feminine, beautiful hairstyle at Dolce & Gabbana using Redken’s Wind Blown 05 dry finishing spray, which gave me that soft, airy texture. But, the real star of the look is the jewelry in the hair. Placing various broaches, pearls and diamonds throughout the hair instantly add charm.”
“I created this very natural, rich look at Ralph Lauren by washing the hair with Redken’s Frizz Dismiss Sulfate-Free Shampoo and Conditioner and letting it air dry so it has that richness. Then, I used the curling iron to put a little bit of bend in the hair and sprayed Wind Blown 05 dry finishing spray all over add texture. It has ease, richness and shine with just enough body to get that feeling of luxury.”
“This look from Valentino is classic, feminine and romantic – perfect for weddings. I took two small pieces of hair from underneath the head on each side of the face and pulled them back into two little braids using Redken’s Braid Aid 03 braid defining lotion to add grip and texture, and then pulled out one strand over the face to add something a little more interesting to the eye.”
