Runway Hairstyle Trends With Redken

ROBERTO CAVALLI Milan Fashion Week Spring – Summer 2013. “This look is really about how the girls look best themselves, how great they look walking down the runway with their natural hair, and really I’m just enhancing that. I’m also tucking the hair behind the ears at the end to give a slightly disheveled feel. But the clothes are very glamorous and they say it all- to create the right overall look for this show, we had to downplay the hair a little bit. This is an easy style that’s a little bit grungy, and just very cool.”-Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

CHRISTIAN DIOR Paris Fashion Week Spring – Summer 2013 Hair by Guido, Redken Creative Consultant. Hairstyle: “We did a low, shiny ponytail at Dior…and it’s important to note that it really complements the very dramatic eye that Pat McGrath did. It’s not frilly but it’s very strong, very utilitarian. The simplicity of the ponytail gives this stripped-back feeling that I was going for.”-Guido, Redken Creative Consultant


LANVIN Paris Fashion Week Spring. “At Lanvin today, the hair is back to very natural. It’s beautiful yet easy, with an emphasis on texture and tucked behind the ears. She’s a very cool girl, and the teasing we did gave her a little bit of attitude.”-Guido, Redken Creative Consultant.


BALENCIAGA Paris Fashion Week Spring – Summer 2013. “The hair at Balenciaga is very natural, yet it’s smooth, not frizzy. I didn’t want to create big hair here today, but I still wanted it to feel very modern and rich. The style also fit with the metal hairpieces that Nicolas provided. They are really exquisite pieces, they were like twisted gold. We did a sort of rough, easy texture on the hair that offsets their beauty to a certain extent- they wouldn’t go with super luxe hair.”-Guido, Redken Creative Consultant


DOLCE & GABBANA Milan Fashion Week Spring – Summer 2013.

“The updo today is not really a twist, not a knot, and it’s all about the scarf and working around the scarf. In my mind it’s how a Sicilian woman would just quickly pin her hair up and then tie on a scarf. You can still see the hairline which is what keeps it from looking too severe, and there’s a little bit of height but its not too exaggerated. It’s a very light, summery look, taking some inspiration from the sixties with a little Riviera feeling, but it’s not pastiched.”-Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

BOTTEGA VENETA Milan Fashion Week Spring – Summer 2013. “The look at Bottega today is very soft and pretty, center-parted with a dry texture and loosely knotted with a few wisps that escape. The inspiration is a little 70’s and also Victorian.”-Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

VERSACE Milan Fashion Week Spring – Summer 2013. “I’d describe the look today at Versace as effortless, very dusty – think of the desert and the beach. It’s not one of the usual “done-up” styles I’ve created for Donatella in the past few seasons, as she really wanted a natural look this season. The ideal length for this look is hair that falls to the collar-bone or little shorter, and it has movement, body, and thickness, with a matte finish. Overall, this is a very cool-girl look, it should feel sexy and uncomplicated.”-Guido, Redken Creative Consultant


PRADA Milan Fashion Week Spring – Summer 2013. “The collection is very sophisticated, yet designed to be wearable for a woman in today’s times, and Miuccia wanted to ‘break the mold’ of the hair to match the clothing in this same way. So we incorporated the idea of the woman being a little bit boyish. Designers always like when a girl’s got character, but when you pull an updo like this twist straight back in front it immediately looks very elegant, so adding the wispy bangs helps to break it up a little bit.”-Guido, Redken Creative Consultant


RALPH LAUREN Spring – Summer 2013. “This whole look had a Gaucho-inspired feeling; picture a very elegant Argentine woman. It’s a very chic, put-together style. While 90 percent of the girls are wearing hats in this show, it was still very important to make the chignons as small and as refined as possible. This look goes along with what I typically think we create in New York in that it’s very American and wearable, but in a different way than the styles I created for some of the newer designers earlier in the week.”-Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Rag + Bone Spring – Summer 2013. “The identity of the Rag + Bone girl is clearer than ever, and this masculine-yet-feminine tomboy style is more defined than looks in past seasons. This soft-yet-tough style is a little beachy, calling to 90’s minimalism. Having the forehead exposed makes for a dramatic look and adds structure as a way to update a textured, wavy look.”-Guido, Redken Creative Consultant


Marc Jacobs Spring – Summer 2013. “This is a styled-then-slept-in look: this girl had a glamorous hairstyle the night before, and this is it the moment she gets up the next day and is maybe walking down the street for a coffee. The height around the face which I created with my new fashion-week go-to product, Redken quick tease 15, is enough to highlight the face, but is not over-the-top Amy Winehouse height. In addition, a few of the models had their hair colored very blonde and black last night, creating a stronger, more graphic silhouette which compliments this collection.”-Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Marc Jacobs

CALVIN KLEIN Spring – Summer 2013. “The look is inspired by the classic Calvin girl herself – super chic, super urban. It’s a little bit grungy but overall the look is very natural. It’s not blown out straight, but just blow-dried with the fingers to achieve this soft, unrefined texture.”-Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Calvin Klein

Nina Ricci Spring – Summer 2013 Paris Fashion Week. “I created a simple French twist today at Nina Ricci, it’s a very feminine look and extremely easy to do. I also like that it’s in fact very modern. I pulled out a few pieces towards the nape of the neck to give the style a little character, to ensure it wasn’t completely perfect, she’s still a real woman.”-Guido, Redken Creative Consultant
