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.

“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

Hair Trends With Redken Fall/Winter 2009: New Classics

Hair Trends With Redken Fall/Winter 2009 according to Guido, Redken Creative Consultant:

A Strong Presence: “This season, it’s all about the ‘do’…hairstyles that have a strong presence, that push the boundaries. These kind of looks are dependent on the use-and in many cases the overuse-of hair products.”

A Positive Force: “Hair now is a reaction to the times we’re living in. It’s strong, positive and forceful-it’s empowering to women.”

A Way To Update And Adapt: “We’ve taken looks from the 40s, 50s, and 80s and updated them with new elements. Women can adapt these looks for everyday by toning down a bit. If a look has extreme shine, use a little less shine product. If it has exaggerated volume, lessen the height.”

Heat Styling Q&A With GUIDO Redken Creative Consultant

Here are some tips about heat styling by GUIDO Redken’s Creative Consultant:

There are so many different sized curling irons-how do I know which one to choose?
It depends on two things. First, you need to decide what size curl you want to create. Second, you have to account for the fact that the curl will loosen throughout the day-you should choose a barrel that’s slightly smaller than the size of the curl you want. For loose waves, I find 1-inch curling iron works best. At first the curls might appear a bit too tight, but they’ll loosen up perfectly.

How can I prevent flat-ironed hair from looking lifeless?
Apply a heat protectant product like iron silk 07 ultra straightening spray to each section before you flat-iron. Hair that’s continually exposed to heat without any protection will end up looking dull, damaged and lifeless. The other trick is to kick the ends out. Just turn your wrist slightly as you’re bringing the iron down to the end of the section. It gives you movement and texture, so hair doesn’t look so severe.

Redken’s Spring/Summer 2009 Hair Trends

A return to simplicity…”This season, it’s all about paring down the hair. Hair had a very modern feel, with styles that stayed close to the head. Loose hair was the exception, not the rule.”

An added touch…”Adding a hair accessory like a hat or a headband can really complement an over-all look.”

A changeable nature…”Heat styling is crucial when you’re backstage. I need products that protect the hair and lock in shape, so I can transform models’ hair from one show to another.”
GUIDO, Redken Creative Consultant.

Hair Trend 1: Perfectly Undone. Softly reconstructed looks with a natural matte finishing. Ponytails, knots and half-ponytails had a casual, disheveled look that played perfectly against spring’s ladylike silhouettes.
Finishes were satin-matte, with an easy elegance.

Balenciaga • Calvin Klein • Celine • Marc Jacobs • Peter Som • Pollini • Salvatore Ferragamo.

How to get perfectly undone hairstyle:
• Hair shouldn’t look tamed this season. Instead, bring out natural texture by applying thickening lotion 06 body builder and tousling with your fingers as you blow-dry.
