Hair how to: Redken X Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2015





Always one of my absolute favourite shows at Milan Fashion Week, this season’s outing by the incredible Dolce & Gabbana was flawless as per. As well as highly covetable, sexy and just plain amazing.
The hair look created by Redken Global Styling Director Guido was a perfect match, and was inspired by “the modern-day Spanish woman”. He created a feminine, soft updo that captured the essence of the classic Dolce & Gabbana woman using Redken’s Signature Look Wind Blown 05 dry finishing spray to add airy texture to the hair before pulling it back into a loose bun with an effortless feeling. To finish the look, Guido adorned each model’s hair with rich floral arrangements and jewel-encrusted crowns - long a signature runway style look for Dolce & Gabbana that I can only dream of one day recreating.
“This look is very classically Dolce,” said the super stylist. “It’s very soft, pretty and feminine – how girls want to look. I created these soft chignons with a Spanish feeling by using Redken’s Signature Look Wind Blown 05 dry finishing spray to create texture throughout the hair, and then pulled the hair back over the ears into a low, loose, sort of messy bun. It could look severe, but I’m doing it with my fingers to make it much softer for an overall feeling that’s very rich and luxurious.”
To create the look yourself:
1. Thoroughly mist Redken Pillow Proof Express Primer all over damp hair and comb through.
2. Apply a nickel-size amount of Redken Satinwear 02 Prepping Blow Dry Lotion throughout damp hair and blow-dry smooth with a round brush.
3. Create a clean centre part with fingers.
4. Spray Redken Signature Look Wind Blown 05 dry finishing spray all over hair to add airy texture.
5. Pull hair over the ears and back into a loose bun.
6. Twist the ponytail to create a messy knot and secure with small U-pins. Leave a few bits of hair sticking out from the bun to achieve a softer look.
7. Finish with another mist of Redken Signature Look Wind Blown 05 dry finishing spray.
