Redken Global Creative Director Guido styled a soft, romantic chignon adorned with beautiful headpieces, scarves and accessories for the runway at Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring/Summer 2016 show. "The look at Dolce this season is very soft and romantic. It’s very easy, almost like you were an American on holiday in Italy and you just threw your hair up for the evening," said Guido.

"I used Redken’s wind blown 05 to get that gorgeous texture, and then gathered the hair up into a high ponytail, twisting it into a messy chignon. It’s very soft around the hairline with the little baby hairs pulled out, and I added just a bit of height at the crown to soften the silhouette. I finished the look by placing different types of crowns, scarves and beautiful hairpieces throughout the hair to enhance the charm.”
