HERMES Fall Winter 2014

Hair by Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Redken Creative Consultant Guido drew inspiration from classic 70’s film stars that really epitomized effortless beauty. In order to create a similar feel for Hermes, Guido used two key blowdry products before twisting the hair to one side for an elegant finish. Hairsprays were left aside so that the hair remained soft and easy.

HERMES Fall Winter 2014 | Hair By Guido using Redken Hair care Products

“It was important for the hair to feel rich and luxurious for Hermes, so I used pillow proof blowdry express primer and satinwear 02 prepping blow-dry lotion to get that gorgeous blowout prior to styling. Once the hair was dry, I created a slight twist around the face and secured it with a pin behind the right ear. It was an understated style, but incredibly elegant nonetheless.” -Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Redken Products Used:

-pillow proof blowdry express primer

-satinwear 02 prepping blow-dry lotion

How To Create the Look:

Spray pillow proof blowdry express primer on damp hair

Apply satinwear 02 prepping blow-dry lotion

Blowdry hair with a round brush

Create a clean side part to the left

Twist front section and pin behind right ear

Stella McCartney 2014

As the exclusive nail sponsor of Stella McCartney Collections in 2014, Sally Hansen strutted down the runway at the spectacular Stella McCartney Winter 2014 Collection fashion show at the Palais Garnier during Paris Fashion Week. To complement the bold textures and sophisticated color palette of the designer’s Winter 2014 Collection, the Sally Hansen nail looks worn on the runway featured clean, modern, understated shades of nude to flatter the models’ skin tones.

THE NAIL LOOK

Sally Hansen Global Color Ambassador, Madeline Poole, custom blended colors of barely blush, nudes and sheers from the Complete Salon Manicure palette.

“We did a natural slightly sheer nail using various combinations of four shades,” said Madeline Poole. “Colors were layered differently for each model to best complement their skin tone. As different nudes look better on different hands, we wanted to customize each girl’s look rather than using the same nude on everyone.

Thanks to the all-in-one product Complete Salon Manicure, we were able to skip base coat application and with the larger, rounded brush, swiftly paint the nails so we could also address nail health and cuticle treatment. As most of the models have had a multitude of nail changes over this past month of fashion shows, we wanted to bring emphasis to conditioning and nourishing the cuticles with Sally Hansen’s Cuticle Rehab. A little bit of backstage TLC goes a long way.”

Jessica Biel’s Oscars 2014 Makeup

KAYLEEN’S STEP-BY-STEP:

I prepped Jessica’ skin with moisturizing face and eye products, Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration and Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado, to give her makeup a good base to stick to.

Then, I used a damp Beauty Blender to apply ck one 3-in-1 face makeup with SPF 8 in fair 200, followed by ck one 3-in-1 concealer in light 1 underneath the eyes, around the nose, and along the edges of her mouth to even out her skin.

I used Charlotte Tilbury Sculpt and Highlight Powder on the tops of Jessica’s cheekbones, down her nose, and on her cupid’s bow.

I finished her skin with ck one cream + powder blush duo in breath 100 right on the apples of her cheeks and set it with the powder side of the product to give the look staying power throughout the night.

For Jessica’s eyes, I started by using a fluffy brush to apply ck one cream + powder bronzer duo in deeply bronzed 400 all over the lid.

Then, I used ck one powder eyeshadow in expose and evolved on the inner corners of the eye and along the lash line at the outer corners.

I completed her eye with two coats of ck one volumizing mascara on the top lashes to pump up the lashes.

Then, I applied the same mascara onto an eyelash comb and combed through the bottom lashes to slightly darken them.

For Jessica’s lips, I used Tarte Lip Surgence in Lucky to cover her whole lip with a matte pink; I also used this product in the center of her lips to give dimension and add moisture to her look.

Lastly, I gave Jessica’s lips a good coating of Kiehl’s Facial Fuel No-Shine Lip Balm to soak in while I did her eyes.

DIOR FALL WINTER 2014 Paris Fashion Week…Hair by Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Redken Creative Consultant Guido created an urban look for Dior that real women could easily incorporate into their street styles. Once the hair was blown out with a cocktail of satinwear 02 prepping blowdry lotion and align 12 protective straightening lotion, Guido used forceful 23 super strength finishing spray to get the hair to lay flat as the models walked the runway. It’s a little bit sporty and a whole lot of sophistication for the Dior look this season.

DIOR FALL WINTER 2014 Paris Fashion Week | Photo by Greg Kessler for Redken.

“The look for Dior is a very minimal idea of sophisticated hair. I wanted to create a wearable hairstyle that would be translatable for everyday women, while still incorporating sculptural elements to the design. The hair was pulled back and flattened to really expose the model’s head shape, which was elegant, but also felt kind of sporty in a way.”-Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Redken Products Used – Collection:

-satinwear 02 prepping blowdry lotion

-align 12 protective straightening lotion

-forceful 23 super strength finishing spray

How To Create the Look

Apply a mixture of satinwear 02 prepping blowdry lotion and align 12 protective straightening lotion to damp hair

Blow dry hair straight back with a natural bristle brush (no parting)

HOT TIP: Apply large black headband so hair stays back and flat

When you are ready to go, take off headband and spray with forceful 23 super strength finishing spray to hold shape
