Fashion Week Looks for Spring/Summer Weddings
As she makes her stride down the aisle, you can be sure everybody’s going to be looking at her. A bride’s wedding day is the most important day of her life and, as her stylist, you need to do your best to see her as more than just a hairstyle in the chair—look at her as the finished product! From the moment she sits down for the trial run, imagine what she’ll look like in the dress, in the veil, with all the jewelry and embellishments. In order for you to see the whole picture, follow the lead of Redken Global Creative Director, Guido. Here are his top runway styles from Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2015 that can easily work for any bride-to-be!
The Elegant Updo
“This Oscar de la Renta style is very elegant and classic—very uptown chic, but there’s a sense of ease to it. I prepped the hair first with Redken Stay High 18 High-Hold Gel to Mousse. 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.”
A Charming Chignon
“I achieved this feminine, beautiful hairstyle at Dolce & Gabbana using Redken Wind Blown 05 Dry Finishing Spray, which gave me that soft, airy texture. But, the real start of the look is the jewelry in the hair. Placing various broaches, pearls and diamonds throughout the hair instantly add charm.”
“I created this very natural, rich look at Ralph Lauren by washing the hair with Redken Frizz Dismiss Sulfate-Free Shampoo and Conditioner and letting it air dry so it has that richness. Then I used the curling iron to put a little bit of bend in the hair and sprayed Wind Blown 05 Dry Finishing Spray all over to add texture. It has ease, richness and shine with just enough body to get that feeling of luxury.”
“This look from Valentino is classic, feminine and romantic—perfect for weddings. I took two small pieces of hair from underneath the head on each side of the face and pulled them back into two little braids using Redken Braid Aid 03 Braid Defining Lotion to add grip and texture, and then pulled out one strand over the face to add something a little more interesting to the eye.”
