If you’re sporting that plain ol’ hairstyle you had in your high school Yearbook, it’s time to give it a toss in favor of these sleek, polished, completely “done” hairdos that Redken’s Creative Consultant, Guido says. Hair fiends, you’re in for a complete treat. Sit back, relax and enjoy the hairshow.
Some overarching themes for the Fall and Winter are:
1. A Fresh Point of View: This season, everything is looked at with a different point of view, from ’60s boho to ’90s grunge.
2. A New Atmosphere: There’s a calming feeling in the air this year: natural hair can both be sexy and beautiful.
3. A Winning Part: Deep side parts are strong looks that nod towards masculinity, but with a sexy attitude as well.
The Trends for Fall/Winter 2010 Are
THE NEW VOLUME: FULL-BODIED SHAPES WITH A MODERN TWIST
As seen at Chloe, Nina Ricci, Roberto Cavalli
The key to getting the look at Chloe is a great blow-dry. Guido used the velvet gelatine 07 cushioning blow-dry gel, set hair in pin curls, and then brushed the curls to get an airy shape.
To get the look at Nina Ricci, he used the aerate 08 bodifying cream-mousse.
Changing your part is really changing your look.
We dig that sexy center part at Versace, and the disheveled wet-look hairstyle at Alexander Wang. For a toned down take on Wang’s look, mist the hair with NEW wax blast 10 high-impact finishing spray wax to enhance texture, part hair on the side and mist with the new forceful 23 super strength finishing spray.
EASY STREET: BRINGING NATURAL LOOKS TO CENTER STAGE
Easy sophistication: a French, 70’s movie feel at Marc Jacobs is easily achieved with the new Wax Blast 10 high-impact finishing spray wax on dry hair and tousle.
HIGH DRAMA: UPDOS
Get your lacquer finish with dramatic shapes for a modern, sculpted feel. Prada was a “nod to French hairdressing.” YSL took a classic chignon and modernized it.
What are some of the essential tools you’ll need for all this creation?
Prep hair with Body Full Shampoo and Condish, add volume with my faves, Thickening Lotion 06 Body Builder, and Velvet Gelatine 07 cushioning blow-dry gel, boost texture with the one and only Wool Shake 08 gel-slush texturizer (among others…can’t you tell I’m slightly partial to wool shake?), and add Shine with iron silk 07 ultra straightening spray.
For Shine, you’ve got to carry the one and only glass 01 smoothing serum with you at all times.
We’ve got the deets on the new products in a separate post. Can’t wait? It won’t be long, my darlings! Go on and ROCK it.
