Redken’s NYFW Fall/Winter 2015 Hugo Boss Recap












Fall/Winter 2015

Hair by Guido, Redken Global Creative Director



Aside from taking Edie Campbell back to black exclusively for Hugo Boss’s Fall/Winter 2015 show, Redken Global Creative Director Guido created a natural, sophisticated look for the runway this season. Guido used Redken’s Satinwear 02 prepping blow-dry lotion to achieve a smooth, luxurious blow out, and then pulled the hair back into a simple, modern low ponytail for an easy, effortless feeling.


“The Hugo Boss idea of a woman is very sophisticated and modern, so I created this very natural, simple, low ponytail for this season’s show. I used Redken’s Satinwear 02 to get that very luxurious, smooth blow out, and then created a clean center part and tucked the hair behind the ears and pulling back into a sleek, low ponytail at the base of the head. I left the ends of the hair a little bit natural so it doesn’t look so polished or like you’re trying to hard – it feels very easy. And then there’s Edie [Cambell], who I took back to black exclusively for the show. We just did it two days ago, and it’s suits her quite nicely. It’s quite a bold look, and it’s not for everyone, but it just fits her personality.”
Guido, Redken Global Creative Director

Redken’s NYFW FW 2014 Hugo Boss Recap






Hair by Guido, Redken Creative Consultant


Redken Creative Consultant Guido used satinwear 02 prepping blow-dry lotion to give the models a frizz-free finish with silky smoothness. Once the hair was pulled back into a tight low ponytail, Guido applied forceful 23 super strength finishing spray to his hands before smoothing out any remaining flyaways. The style is simple, elegant and wearable.

“I was inspired by the clean and sophisticated styles that Hugo Boss effortlessly produces season after season. The Fall/Winter 2014 collection remained true to the brand’s design aesthetic, so it was important for me to create a hairstyle that further amplified such qualities of richness and luxury. It is wonderful when the brand itself becomes the inspiration.”  -Guido, Redken Creative Consultant
