BTC EXCLUSIVE: Guido’s Sleek French Twist for Oscar de la Renta
Oscar de la Renta is the epitome of high fashion and elegance, and at his Fall/Winter 2015 show, Redken Global Creative Director, Guido, delivered nothing less. Putting a modern touch on a classic French twist, Guido raked the hair back using his fingers, leaving comb marks in the hair before adding Redken Forceful 23 Super Strength Hairspray and Diamond Oil High Shine Airy Mist to complete the look. The result is sleek and sophisticated with major ‘wow’ factor.
“The look at Oscar de la Renta this season is very elegant and classic—very uptown chic. Though the finished look is very done, there’s a sense of ease to it,” notes Guido. “I prepped the hair first with Redken Stay High 18 because you need some grip and hold to achieve the style. The key here is to secure the French twist at the back of the neck, making sure it’s flat and tight against the head, which creates a super beautiful profile.”
Impress your clients with this modern take on a classic! Here’s how!
1. Apply a quarter-sized amount of Redken Stay High 18 High-Hold Gel to damp hair and blow-dry.
2. Gather the hair, raking your fingers through to create comb marks, and then pull it up into a French twist. Be sure the base of the twist is tight and flat against the head.
3. Secure the French twist by pinning with open fasteners.
4. Finish with a thorough spray of Redken Forceful 23 Super Strength Hairspray for hold and lightly mist Redken Diamond Oil High Shine Airy Mist all over for added shine.
