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.

If you were following us on Twitter during New York Fashion Week, you probably are in the know already of what Spring//Summer 2013 beauty trends are soon to be, but, if you haven't seen already, take a look now! We had backstage passes to fashion designer Vivienne Tam's SS 2013 fashion show, and through the crowds of hair and makeup stylists, press, bloggers, and photographers, we had the chance to snag a few beauty tips, a bit of hair tutorial, and lots of insider tips and tricks and products being used.

For this specific show, the makeup artists were using only MAC cosmetics

The makeup was very matte and nude, a trend that will be most definitely popular for the upcoming spring season. Watch how the head makeup artist applies the makeup here.

For the hair, hair stylists parted model's hair into a middle part, pulled back into a bun with a dusting of red, light blue, green, and gray on the center parts. Watch how two hair stylists get a perfect, spiral bun here.
