Hair how to: Dolce & Gabbana F/W 2014 by Guido for Redken




I’m an unabashed raving fan of Dolce & Gabbana, falling in love with each collection as soon as it hits the catwalk. If only I had the sass - and the dosh - to wear their sexy Sicilian mama designs but alas, at least their beauty look is within reach with the right know how.
Their latest outing at Milan Fashion Week was pure Dolce & Gabbana from the models to the manicure, and Redken Global Styling Director Guido swept the hair up in a classic Dolce & Gabbana manner, which is synonymous with soft, romantic and truly elegant style. The designers traded in last season’s strictly Sicilian imagery for more of a fairy tale feel, but the mood was still very Italian and ultra feminine. Set against a dreamy forest backdrop, models hit the catwalk in an enchanting mix of medieval hoods, daytime dresses, floral embellishments and light and airy gowns that look like something Sleeping Beauty would wear
In order to achieve an airy, carelessly sexy quality to the hair, Guido used body full volume amplifier and a spritz of pillow proof blowdry two day extender (not available until April in New Zealand but I am obsessing already), before twisting the braid into a soft updo. Regardless of the season, the Dolce & Gabbana look is always feminine and beautiful.
"I created a soft, ethereal hairstyle that was respectful of the way the designers have defined the Dolce & Gabbana woman,” said Guido. “I used a very small amount of products to give the hair some friction and texture, but where it still felt soft. Once the hair was pinned back, I pulled out a few tendrils to add even more softness around the face. Dolce & Gabbana always take a soft approach to women's beauty." And I love them for it!
To re-create the look at home:
1. Apply body full volume amplifier to damp hair
2. Blowdry hair with a round brush
3. Use a curling iron to add soft waves to the hair
4. Lightly spray pillow proof blowdry two day extender on the mid-lengths and ends
5. Create a loose braid
6. Twist the braid around and pin into place
