At Milan Fashion Week, Redken Creative Consultant Guido created a 60's inspired hairstyle that felt in line with Versace's own personal style. Unlike the natural styles that have dominated the runway this season, the hair at Versace was anything but easy, or natural. Once the hair was blown out straight, Guido team swept flat irons back and forth until the hair was stick straight. In order to protect the integrity of the hair, Guido used pillow proof blowdry express primer and iron shape 11 finishing thermal spray.
Designer Inspiration: “This season is inspired by St Petersburg, stained glass windows and rich graphics. The collection is day focused with a cleaner, tidier silhouette and lots of layering," says designer Alice Temperley.

The simple hair look at the Ports 1961, A/W 2014 show in Milan acted as the perfect contrast to the richness of the collection. “The Ports 1961 collection is always beautiful, incredibly well made and very stylized. This brand appeals to cool girls with a fast pace of life but not much time, so I wanted to create a hair look that appeared as if it didn’t take a lot of time, as if the girl’s had not tortured themselves to get something perfect. Imperfect is far cooler,” said Wella Professionals Global Creative Director, Eugene Souleiman.
For a recent Pantone 2014 concept photo shoot, hairstylist Rebecca Taylor created three gorgeously bold, colorful looks based on Pantone's "Radiant Orchid," "Hemlock," and "Cayenne." Says Rebecca, "I use Iso Active Lift to lighten and my 'naturals' mainly Joico. As for my fashion shades, I use custom mixes of Pravana and Joico Intensities, using clear as a base and adding/combining the pure pigments to achieve the lighter tones of mint and coral."The result is beautiful, rich, vivid color, perfect for those who love to stand out.
At Milan Fashion Week, The hair for Prada is actually identical to the look Redken Creative Consultant Guido created for the eight women that were featured in the men's show. The Fall/Winter 2014 women's wear show was meant to be a continuation or a second act to the men's show, so the continuity of the hairstyles helped bridge the two collections together. Guido coated the hair from root to ends with flex move ability 05 and then used his hands, rather than a comb, to gather the hair into a low, tight bun.
Redken Creative Consultant Guido washed the hair with all soft shampoo in order to get a nice, clean texture to the hair. Natural parts and natural textures remained intact, as Guido finished off the truly effortless style with a bit of pillow proof blowdry two day extender before tucking the hair into the clothing.
