For a 1940s, sculpted shape of the hair at Loewe, Guido’s key product was Redken forceful 23 hairspray that kept the look in place and gave it that ‘plastic’ feel: “The clothes at Loewe are very feminine, with a few suits, so we wanted to nod to the 1940s and create a sophisticated, sculpted shape with the hair.” -Guido, Redken Creative Consultant
