Deep side parts and sculptural finishes lent a sense of masculinity to otherwise feminine styles. The result? A look that’s cool, confident and never conformist says Guido Palau, Redken Creative Consultant.
SUMMER 2014 BOYISH TREND: CATWALK INSPIRATION!
The sleek style at Dior was coated, combed and sprayed to create a sculpted finish. “It’s chic, beautiful and a bit boyish – classic Dior,” says Guido. To recreate the look, apply hardwear 16 super strong gel and blow-dry with a round brush, then comb hair into a low ponytail and secure. Reapply hardwear 16 to the ponytail and comb through again, then twist the tail into a neat chignon and pin. Mist on control addict 28 extra high-hold hairspray for long-lasting hold.
At first glance you might not realize it, but the choppy platinum bobs at Marc Jacobs were wigs – right down to the dark roots, which Guido’s team created to mimic the look of real regrowth. “This look encompasses the free-spirited girl that Marc loves. She’s punk and boyish, which is why the wig is bowl-shaped and asymmetrically cut. It’s as if she took the scissors to her own hair,” says Guido. Finish any choppy style – wig or natural – with forceful 23 super strength finishing spray for strong hold and added texture.
Slick strands and a deep side part showed off the electric haircolor – rich black, high-lift blonde and vibrant red— on the Prada runway. “It’s true Prada hair, in that it’s a bit school-boyish, but the overall look is quite strong,” says Guido. “The color added a futuristic element to the look.” Start with Color Extend Shampoo and Conditioner to keep your color fresh, then blow-dry smooth with guts 10 volume spray foam. Create a deep side part, tuck hair behind your ears and secure with bobby pins.
