The new Ines Di Santo Couture Collection, recently debuted at the New York International Bridal Market, takes flight into a dreamy, sensual, otherworldly realm with a heavy emphasis on the feminine. Known for her signature mermaid styles, it seems only fitting that Ines Di Santo's collection would be partially influenced by the legendary city of Atlantis, which inspired the airy silhouettes that give the appearance of floating along with sublime lightness.
Hair by Guido, Redken Creative Consultant Redken Creative Consultant Guido kept the hair tucked away under 20s inspired metal headpieces that gave the models a futuristic and tribal look on the runway. It has become somewhat of a tradition for Guido to exclude hair altogether, opting for head treatments over hairstyles for McQueen.
Hair by Guido, Redken Creative Consultant Redken Creative Consultant Guido styled the hair, not as an extension of the headdress, but rather in opposition to it. The messy hair poking out of the headpieces suggest that the girls are not authentically fanciful, but simply playing dress up in a spectacular production.

Hair by Guido, Redken Creative Consultant Redken Creative Consultant Guido created an easy, carefree look for Lanvin by exposing the models' natural textures and cuts on the runway.

Hair by Guido, Redken Creative Consultant Redken Creative Consultant Guido created a look that was both messy and modern, while still maintaining a beautiful quality to the hair. He used a bit of satinwear 02 prepping blow-dry lotion to soften and smooth the natural texture of the hair. Once the hair was twisted and pinned, Guido finished with quick dry 18 instant finishing spray. This particular hairspray provided for a clean style, without creating a firm or hard feeling to the hair.

Recently, Badgley Mischka Bride debuted a new collection for 2014 inspired by the classic femme fatales of Hollywood, Bette, Joan, Rita, Ava, Grace, and infused with the nonchalance and ease of the 1930's-era French Riviera.
For its Spring/Summer 2014 presentation, Octavio Carlin enlisted the pros at VoCe Haircare to create voluminous, 70's-inspired hair. Lead stylist Whitney Olson used an array of VoCe Haircare's high quality products to create the look, including VoCe Haircare Touch Me for added hold, Volume Mist for body and texture, and Refresh Me Dry Shampoo for a matte finish. The look was described as "matte hair inspired by the 70's," a complement to the many prints found in Octavio's Spring/Summer 2014 collection.
A return to a classic, old Hollywood look began cropping up all over Spring/Summer 2014 runways: the deep side part. With a nod to past Hollywood icons like Veronica Lake and Marlene Dietrich, stylists took to the style with a new, modern spin. According to Anthony Turner, Session Stylist for L’Oréal Professionnel at New York City, London and Paris Fashion Weeks, "A deep side part instantly elevates any style from mundane to chic, no matter what hair type you have and whether you prefer your hair loose or gathered into a chignon or ponytail."
