Inspired by a 1970s hippie girl in Los Angeles, that hung out with rockstars, Guido created long, stick straight hair with a center part for Roberto Cavalli’s Spring/Summer 2011 Collection which also marked the design house’s 40th Anniversary.
“This is Roberto Cavalli’s 40th anniversary in the business, so it’s a big show for him and likewise, for the hair. The Collection has a 1970s feel to reference Cavalli’s start in Fashion in 1970, so we came up with a retro style for the hair to complement the sexy, head turning designs and innovative hemlines and fringe, but still making her look modern and cool.”
align 12 protective straightening balm
vinyl glam 02 mega shine spray
Create a messy center part, wet hair and apply align 12. Blow dry for stick straight strands that have added protection from heat and damage.
Run through hair with flat iron
Section off crown section of hair
To cut down on volume, scalp braid hair horizontally from the occipital bone down to the nape – add a layer of extensions that skin the lower back to create length, securing them in where the scalp braids began (if hair is already long, extensions wouldn’t be needed)
Flat iron all hair together to the very ends
Finish with vinyl glam 02 for separation and shine.
