Our favorite Paris Fashion Week Looks by Guido for Redken

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!

celine hair by guido for redken paris fashion week

“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

  4. Use a flat brush to blow dry the hair straight, lifting the roots at the crown for added for height.

“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

It’s that ‘I woke up this morning beautiful and healthy’ look we all wish we actually woke up looking like. And while it plays off the ‘no makeup makeup’ that’s been such a big trend for the past season there is a uniqueness to this look in the transparency in the skin and technique.

Backstage at Issey Miyake all eyes were on lead artist Alex Box who individually painted a beautiful eye design on every model that walked the runway. Leading the show for MAC Cosmetics, Box sat every model down on the ground and custom painted/blew an eye design using MAC’s Pigments. Alternating between bright colors she mixed the pure pigment with MAC Pro Mixing Medium Water Base then dropped them on the sides of the eyes blowing with a straw the access color so it created a unique design and then went in with a makeup brush to refine the look.

{Watch Alex Box create this beautiful eye!}

Box took inspiration from the tropical jungle, mainly butterfly’s and birds of paradise but not just as stills but how they move. Trying to create that intense flicker you see in the corner of your eye as you peek them in the corner of your eye.

At Terminal 2C, flight attendants clad in Chanel assisted hordes of glamorous passengers. While unlikely a regular human TSA agent would don Chanel, I’ll let Daddy do what he does best: create an uber-realistic world where double C’s are emblazoned on every nook and cranny. No tacky jogging-suit sightings. No oversized upcharged luggage. And most importantly, no wailing mini humans.
