Hair how to: Dolce & Gabbana S/S 16 by Guido for Redken

If last season’s Dolce & Gabbana show was all about the great tradition of Italian mammas, then for SS16, it was all about the glamorous tourists. Domenico and Stefano sent out an ode to all cheesiest bits of their homeland, alongside a collection that was a riot of curve hugging and feminine shapes in bright and beautiful prints.
Fifties silhouettes ruled, smothered in rich laces, floral prints and gorgeous red, white and green stripes. Postcard prints splashed across silk dresses for the much-loved finale, accessorised with Riviera headscarves and enormous cat-eye shades. Just gorgeous!
The hair look for the show was created by long-time Dolce & Gabbana collaborator Guido, Redken’s Global Creative Director.
"The look at Dolce this season is very soft and romantic,” he said after the show. “It's very easy, almost like you were an American on holiday in Italy and you just threw your hair up for the evening. I used Redken Signature Look Wind Blown 05 to get that gorgeous texture, and then gathered the hair up into a high ponytail, twisting it into a messy chignon. It's very soft around the hairline with the little baby hairs pulled out, and I added just a bit of height at the crown to soften the silhouette. I finished the look by placing different types of crowns, scarves and beautiful hairpieces throughout the hair to enhance the charm."
To create the look at home:
1. Start by spraying Redken Pillow Proof Express Primer all over damp hair and comb through.
2. Use a round natural-bristle brush to blow-dry hair straight.
3. Lightly spray Redken Signature Look Wind Blown 05 Dry Finishing Spray all over hair to enhance natural texture.
4. Create a short centre part with fingers.
5. Use fingers to gather hair into a high ponytail at the crown of the head and secure with an elastic, leaving some baby hairs and random pieces out in the front.
6. Twist the length of the ponytail into a messy chignon and secure with hair pins.
