Paying homage to the tenth anniversary of the iconic Galaxy dress and celebrating the brand’s new collection of unique, beautiful dresses were the creative inspirations for the classic, yet personalized, hair look at Roland Mouret’s SS16 Paris Fashion Week Show. “Each model has their own individual look and we wanted to reflect that in the hair.

Redken Global Creative Director Guido achieved an intricate, eclectic hairstyle to complement Valentino’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection, which drew inspiration from many different cultures. "The look at Valentino this season is very cross-cultural. The clothes have some tribal inspiration, so the hair has that feeling as well, but in a way that’s still very Valentino with the softness around the face and ears," said Guido.

Redken Global Creative Director Guido created a natural hairstyle adorned with black headbands to complement the modern, minimalistic collection at Akris’s Spring/Summer 2016 show. "Albert and I talked about the Akris woman and what he likes to see on the runway, which is often quite clean and minimal, and this season, it’s a very easy, light look," said Guido.

Redken's Guido explains: "It’s a bit boyish and inspired by Sade, who was an English singer in the 80s, but it’s got some height in the font and it’s kind of squared off, meaning it’s not a pulled back, round ponytail. I started by blow drying the hair very smooth using Redken’s guts 10 and shape factor 22, which I applied at the forehead and just raked through with my fingers because it’s got that great hold and adds a little bit of lift.

To create a truly couture hairstyle for the runway at Alexander McQueen’s Spring/Summer 2016 show, Redken Global Creative Director Guido used a needle and thread to sew the models’ hair into beautiful, romantic updos. "This season, Sarah [Burton] wanted a look that was very touchable and real, but I couldn’t leave the hair too real because we needed to find a way to still make it very McQueen," said Guido. "I thought about putting fabric into a sewing machine and then pulling it out again.

Music and the collection’s mashup of pop art color and rock ‘n’ roll edge was the creative inspiration for the high impact, multi-textured style hair look at ACNE’s SS16 Paris Fashion Week Show. “We’ve taken lots of different musical influences including one of my rock ‘n’ roll idols, Lemmy from Motorhead. The look blends the raw power of rock a sci-fi inspired techno fringe – it’s a real tour de force,” said Wella Professionals Global Creative Director Eugene Souleiman. “Our message is very strong and pure.

For the 8th Annual Supima Design Competition during Paris Fashion Week, the cotton brand showed winning looks from students of top design schools. Inspired by the unique pairing of cotton-made evening wear, Aveda Guest Artist Jon Reyman created a youthful and wearable style. “This flower petal-shaped knot is fanned out for an edgy, but refined look,” Reyman says. “Showing in the heart of Paris, I wanted the hair to be high-fashion and fun.”

To embrace the individuality of the girls at Loewe’s Spring/Summer 2016 show, Redken Global Creative Director Guido used Redken’s satinwear 02 prepping blow-dry lotion to enhance each girl’s hair texture before creating a custom, natural style. "The hair at Loewe is very individual – it’s all about the girls’ personalities," said Guido. "Some have their hair back, some have it down and natural. I prepped the hair with Redken’s satinwear 02 and water and then rough blow dried the hair to keep the natural texture, which gives that luxurious, rich finish.”

Editorial and runway stylist Jorge Luis, Creative Director of the Prive Salon, created beautiful, soft and feminine styles with a futuristic touch at the Son Jung Wan Spring 2016 Collection. Long ponytails were tied high and artfully swept forward, shaped and pulled to the side to create faux-bangs. Jorge Luis finished the looks with a subtle silver ribbon band (tied at the nape) to accent the jewel and metallic tones in the collection.  Get the Look:

Balancing boyish masculinity with feminine charm, Redken Global Creative Director Guido sculpted an easy-feeling French twist for the runway at Lanvin’s Spring/Summer 2016 show. "The look at Lanvin is always about funky character and ease," said Guido. "The messy twist this season is very boyish and masculine, but the bow in the back adds an off-ness and ease that’s very Lanvin. It almost feels a little Leslie Caron.
