Fashion Week Paris: Miu Miu, Louis Vuitton + Redken

By Christabelle…

Redken Creative Consultant Guido wrapped up Paris Fashion Week today with two distinct, even edgy looks that perfectly complemented the Louis Vuitton and Miu Miu Spring/Summer 2012 collections.

Miu Miu Fashion Show - Paris

Redken Creative Consultant Guido created a sculpted, wavy look to match the austere yet glamorous Miu Miu collection in Paris today.  “At Miu Miu today, we’re replicating this new type of texture that we’ve seen a lot of this season.  Miu Miu is Prada’s “little sister” so we used a similar texture seen in Milan at Prada as a reference for today.  The hair is down with a few waves in the front and in the back – it’s finished with Redken’s forceful 23 so you know there’s something in it. ”

–Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Redken Products Used:

Velvet gelatine 07 cushioning blow-dry gel

– forceful 23 super strength finishing spray

 

Create the Look:

– Apply velvet gelatine 07 cushioning blow-dry gel to damp hair and rough dry.

– While the hair is still warm from the blow-dryer, pull the hair into a knot at the occipital bone and let set for 15 minutes or until hair is cool

– Pull hair out so there is a slight wave in the back.

– For the front, create a center part and pull the left and right front sections (separately) slightly over the forehead to create a wave effect and tuck behind the ears (see picture below).

– Finish the entire head with forceful 23 hairspray so the hair is completely stiff to create a very hard looking texture

Louis Vuitton Fashion Show Paris

Redken Creative Consultant Guido created a French twist with an edge today to pair with the lovely, luxurious Louis Vuitton collection. “Today is the last day of Fashion Week and at the Louis Vuitton show, we’re creating an easy updo, a French twist with bits sticking out so it’s a little bit punky.  We took inspiration from the Marc Jacobs show in New York and evolved the look with a dryer texture for the Louis Vuitton woman.  Some of the models are wearing tiaras and this is overall a very pretty look.”

–Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Redken Products Used:

-Aerate 08 all-over bodifying cream-mousse

-Wool shake 08 gel-slush texturizer

-Fashion work 12 versatile working spray

    Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any points for beginner blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.
