From Runway to Realway: D&G Spring 2013 Hair

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 10/19/2012 - 4:55 PM

We know Dolce & Gabbana is one of your favorite fragrance designers...that's why we wanted to let you in on how to get the hair look from Dolce & Gabbana's Spring/Summer 2013 hair look. Read on to get the gorgeous updo, a style that was light and loose and put emphasis on the brightly patterned scarves worn at the show in Milan. The inspiration behind the collection? A girl in the Sicilian islands, during summertime.
"The updo today is not really a twist, not a knot, and it's all about the scarf and working around the scarf. In my mind it's how a Sicilian woman would just quickly pin her hair up and then tie on a scarf. You can still see the hairline which is what keeps it from looking too severe, and there's a little bit of height but its not too exaggerated. It's a very light, summery look, taking some inspiration from the sixties with a little Riviera feeling, but it's not pastiched." -Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Products You'll Need:
Redken aerate 08 bodifying cream mousse 2.3 oz

Create the Look:

  1. Apply aerate 08 all-over bodifying cream-mousse from roots to ends to create some volume with a little texture when you blow-dry.
  2. Blow-dry straight back so that there's no part.
  3. Tie on a silk headscarf folded about two inches thick, leaving about an inch of hair from the hairline, knotting scarf on the bottom to the side.
  4. Pin hair up into a "rough updo" that's almost a twist or a knot and works with the hair length and type, and pin with open fasteners.

From Runway to Real Way: Marc Jacobs' Deep Side Part

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 10/16/2012 - 2:49 PM

Marc Jacobs entire beauty look was inspired by Edie-Sedgwick, the 1960's icon with big eyes and fair skin. Marc Jacobs makeup and hair was styled perfectly to capture the essence, with a teased, tousled ponytail and a deep side part.
"This is a styled-then-slept-in look: this girl had a glamourous hairstyle the night before, and this is it the moment she gets up the next day and is maybe walking down the street for a coffee. The height around the face which I created with my new fashion-week go-to product, Redken quick tease 15, is enough to highlight the face, but is not over-the-top Amy Winehouse height. In addition, a few of the models had their hair colored very blonde and black last night, creating a stronger, more graphic silhouette which compliments this collection."
-Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Products You'll Need:

Redken body full instant bodifier volumizing foam for baby fine hair

Rockhaholic Dirty Secrety Dry Shampoo

Redken headset 25 extra strength finishing spray maximum control


How to Get the Look:

  1. Apply a generous amount of volumizing foam from roots to ends and blow dry straight
  2. Create a deep left part that is not perfectly clean, but defined.
  3. Begin to create volume at the crown by holding up 2 inch sections of hair straight up and away from the head and spraying the first 3-4 inches at hair at roots with the finishing spray, backcombing. Hold section up for a few seconds as it dries and let fall, continuing on the next section and throughout the entire head for an all-over backcombed effect.
  4. Gather hair into a low ponytail at the base of the head, leaving the height on top and adding the Rockaholic dry shampoo aerosol hair powder/dry shampoo for extra matte texture.
  5. Pull a few wisps out of the final pony ensuring it doesn't look too "done."

Rebecca Minkoff's Spring Summer 2013 overall look was inspired by a summer vacation, and the hair to accompany the collection was no exception to that. The look featured beach waves with polished ends, and we had to get the details on how to get this casual, yet glam look.
The collection called for a relaxed, chic style, and hair stylists from TRESemmé nailed it on the head. Head stylist Jeanie Syfu created an undone, sophisticated on for the how to steps!

Start by applying a finishing spray and foaming mousse through the hair and powder dry with fingers for texture.

Smooth out the ends with a brush

Take random sections of hair and using a 1" barrel curling iron, create curls through the mid-lengths, making sure to leave the ends out

Use a flat iron to straight ends and give the beach texture a polished finish

Spray lightly with a volumizing dry shampoo for that matte look

Lastly, create a middle part with a comb and finish with a dime size of anti frizz cream to fingertips, raking through hair from roots to ends.
