We’re just getting started modeling our summer hairstyles, but it’s never too early to start planning your Fall/Winter 2013/14 hair looks!
Hair is slicked back with ultra-shine products including Redken’s NEW Diamond Oil line. Curls are luxe and cool with oversized volume, while ballerina buns take a back seat (in a good way!) and a gleaming touch was added to the classic French twist.
“This season was about a more womanly kind of beauty… very cinematic, with references to film noir. Designers wanted to capture moments in beauty, so I created hairstyles that looked caught in the moment, as if a woman were caught in the rain or at a certain point in time.
We referenced film sirens like Elizabeth Taylor and Kim Novack, classic beauties who were very strong and powerful. Shine was very prevalent, and products like Redken’s New Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine and Shine Flash 02 helped me achieve that glistening finish.”— Guido, Redken Creative Consultant
Get The Look: Shine Drenched
The sun was out as models walked at Marc Jacobs, but the hair took a darker turn with boyish, high-gloss cuts in inky blacks and browns. Same goes for Dior Haute Couture this spring, where gleaming punk pixies stole the show.
Marc Jacobs FW13
“It was grungy, raw and real,” Guido said. Most of the models sported precision-cut wigs (“Just try asking 55 models to chop off their hair,” Guido said with a laugh), but the same tips apply to authentic pixie cuts:
— Start by applying a generous amount of Guts 10 Root Targeted Volume Spray Foam to wet hair, then create a messy side part and comb through.
— Now apply NEW Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine (hair should still be wet) and air-dry.
— Pin back one side and mist on control addict Control Addict 28 High-Control Hairspray.
Get The Look: Luxe Factor
At Bottega Veneta, Guido’s inspiration was a young Jodie Foster in the 1976 film Taxi Driver. Key to these billowy curls? “The amount of product you use – if I used less, it would have meant less volume,” he said.
— Prep hair with Guts 10 Root Targeted Volume Spray Foam and rough-dry, then mist on Iron Shape 11 Finishing Thermal Spray before curling and setting hair in pin curls. (Leave the top 2-3” of hair uncurled.)
— Once hair has cooled, unpin each curl, brush through to add airy volume, then sweep hair to one side and pin above the ear.
Ready for a grown-up version of a ponytail? The elegant style seen at Loewe fits the bill perfectly.

Alberta Ferretti FW13
At Alberta Ferretti, Guido reinvented the French twist with a sculpted shape and a gleaming finish. “I used a lot of product to make sure it wasn’t too soft or too pretty,” he noted. “It’s a little tougher and cooler.”
— Start by working Rewind 06 Pliable Styling Paste through damp hair, then rake hair into a twist, leaving out two side sections.
— Pin your twist in place, then pin the two side sections back (leave the center part visible).
— Mist on a generous amount of Control Addict 28 High-Control Hairspray and let the style dry.
Nina Ricci FW13
– After smoothing hair into a high ponytail, he swirled the tail into an oversized bun and pinned in place, then finished the look with Fashion Work 12 Versatile Working Spray.
Get The Look: So Low
