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."
Internationally renowned designer Sue Wong hit all the right notes with the recent unveiling of her swinging "Jazz Babies" Spring 2014 Collection. The event, which took place at the Cicada Club in Los Angeles, revealed a collection that features a greatest hits list of trends, including polka dots in a variety of colors, intricately embroidered bodices, and an array of day-to-evening pieces in beautifully muted shades of lilac, pink, black and beige.
Hair by Guido, Redken Creative Consultant Redken Creative Consultant Guido continued with the natural, grunge trend at Margiela. While the back section was pulled up into a messy updo, the overall look was meant to be unrefined and a bit unruly. To maintain the model's natural texture, Guido did a dry style with shine flash 02 glistening mist and control addict 28 high hold hairspray to create this unpolished look.
Hair by Guido, Redken Creative Consultant Redken Creative Consultant Guido created a modern hairstyle for Dior that relied heavily on three key products: shine flash 02 glistening mist, hardwear 16 super strong gel, and control addict 28 high control hairspray. The sleek chignon was coated, combed and sprayed to create an almost sculptural finish to the hair.
Hair by Guido, Redken Creative Consultant Redken Creative Consultant Guido used outshine 01 anti-frizz polishing milk, a drop of diamond oil shatterproof shine and a round brush to create the super smooth finish at Nina Ricci. The simple, low ponytail was loosened in the front just enough to add softness to the design, while still maintaining enough tension to hold the style together. The hair manages to be polished and undone all at once.
This year, Fashion Week saw a sea of bobs in the streets of Paris. An array of styles, everything from blunt cuts, to frayed fringe, to sleek and slicked back, to the rumpled, just-rolled-out-of-bed bob could be seen adorning the heads of Fashion Week's finest. The ever-chic bob is simultaneously modern and classic, and, according to Sam Villa, Founding Partner of the Sam Villa® Brand and Education Artistic Director for Redken 5th Avenue, "a timeless haircut that every stylist should have in their repertoire."

Hair by Guido, Redken Creative Consultant Redken Creative Consultant Guido delivered, as one might expect from Dolce & Gabbana, classically beautiful hair. The style was ultra-feminine, with a soft braided updo pinned with gold coins, flowers and other equally ornate hair accessories, specially selected by the designers. While the hair was not adorned uniformly, the overall Romanesque look was exquisite.
