Redken’s NYFW FW 2014 Alexander Wang Beauty Recap

Hair by Guido, Redken Creative Consultant 

Redken Creative Consultant Guido used control addict 28 extra high-hold hairspray to create a firm, almost helmet like shape around the head. To further amplify the artificial quality of the look, Guido coated the hair with shine flash 02 glistening mist and had the makeup team color in the model’s part. The head shape, rather than the ponytail, was the prominent style at Alexander Wang’s show. While there were unconventional elements at play, the overall style remained super cool and chic.

“The inspiration for the hair this season actually came from a drawing Alexander Wang shared with me when he was designing the collection. I wanted the hair to look drawn on the models like Alex’s illustration, so I used very straight lines to create the illusion that the hair was stuck on. I didn’t want the hair to be too normal. I wanted to make something classic, a little different so certain elements were slightly off. ”
