Guido for Redken Fall/Winter 2008 Hair Trends

Taking Makeup is excited to bring to you Guido for Redken’s Fall/Winter 2008 hair trends straight from the runways at Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2008 NYC, Paris, Milan and London.

Guido designed and executed the hair at more than 30 shows including Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan, Versace and Louis Vuitton and has put together his top hair trends for the coming season inspired by the shows. Guido takes us to the back of the head, where we will be seeing knots, twists, ponytails with a spice of 1960s glam, 1920s sophistication and a touch of the future.

Guido-Hair Stylist for Redken.

A fresh take…”The back of the head is huge this season. We’re seeing knots, twists, ponytails-it’s a blend of 1980s glam, 1920s sophistication and a touch of the future.”

A glam finish…”We saw a lot of roughed-up, matte textures last season. Now, we’re moving on to styles with high shine. It’s a controlled look, a return to a woman who’s more demure-but at the same time she’s strong, confident and sexy.”

A streamlined silhouette…”This season, it’s all about minimalism. We’re seeing smaller, more subdued styles. Hair is pulled back close to the head and styled in a clean, simple way.”


Here are Guido’s for Redken top four hair trends for the Fall/Winter 2008 season:

Intense Shine: High Gloss Looks With A Plasticized Finish: Shine returns to the runway in full force, after last season’s parade of ultra-matte textures. Hair stayed close to the scalp, in sedate slicked-back styles with a lacquered finish. As seen at: Alice Temperley, Calvin Klein, Christopher Kane, Halston, Jonathan Saunders, Kisa, Lanvin, Miu Miu, Prada, and Pringle.

1. To get the slick finish seen at Prada: Blow-dry hair straight, then smooth hardwear 16 super strong gel from roots to ends (applying gel to dry hair creates a lacquered effect). Pull hair into a bun and apply glass 01 smoothing serum for extra sleekness.
2. For a blow-dry with extreme shine, mist on forceful 23 super strength finishing spray section-by-section and blow-dry hair with a Mason Pearson brush. Reapply the spray to your finished style for a sleek, plasticized effect.
3. Finish any style with a mist of vinyl glam 02 mega shine spray-it adds extreme shine without weighing down fine hair.
