Redken Global Creative Director Guido showcased each girl’s personality by celebrating their individual hair texture at the Akris Fall/Winter 2016 show during Paris Fashion Week F/W 2016. “Each look at the Akris show was very individual, and we wanted to celebrate and emphasize the varying hair textures," says Guido. "I used different products on different girls to ultimately achieve a similar look on all, but the goal was to showcase each girl’s personality. Depending on the hair type, I either added a bit of texture using wind blown 05, or calmed it down and smoothed it out with glow dry oil.”
