Get the Look: Dramatic Flair at Dolce & Gabbana Couture

Dg1 1

To add to the drama of Dolce & Gabbana’s Couture show, Redken Global Creative Director Guido created a variety of sleek chignons and knots to anchor the designer’s stunning headpieces. Says Guido, "The hair for Dolce & Gabbana was dependent on the headpiece made for each girl. I prepped the hair with Redken’s guts 10, and then created a center part before styling various types of chignons, loose Sicilian knots, braided knots and loose buns.”
