When it comes to backstage hair looks, Guido is the king! He’s one of the most sought after hair stylists and one many of us look to for upcoming hair trends and looks. During Paris Fashion Week he created a variety of looks using Redken ranging from everyday looks to once in a blue moon. Here’s a quick recap of some of our favorites!
“It’s a bit boyish and inspired by Sade, who was an English singer in the 80s, but it’s got some height in the font and it’s kind of squared off, meaning it’s not a pulled back, round ponytail. I started by blow drying the hair very smooth using Redken’s guts 10and shape factor 22, which I applied at the forehead and just raked through with my fingers because it’s got that great hold and adds a little bit of lift. Then, I pulled it back into a ponytail in the middle of the head and used Redken’s braid aid 03 to create the very clean braid and really hold it in place. Overall, the look feels quite tomboyish, but still super polished and modern, which is very Celine.” – Guido

“The look at Valentino this season is very cross-cultural. The clothes have some tribal inspiration, so the hair has that feeling as well, but in a way that’s still very Valentino with the softness around the face and ears. It’s a bit influenced by the 60’s and 70’s when girls used to travel and they would bring back inspiration from other places and cultures, which is kind of an eclectic way of styling yourself. The hair almost has a Grecian feel to it as well. Redken’s braid aid 03 is my main product, which I used to create the cornrow twists, and then I used Redken’s triple take 32 hairspray to finish the style and hold everything in place. The silhouette elongates the neck, which is a bit Egyptian and very elegant and attractive.” – Guido
