Nina Ricci Spring/Summer 2015 PFW Redken’s Get The Look

In keeping with the Parisian surroundings, Redken Creative Consultant Guido created a delicate French chignon for Nina Ricci’s Spring/Summer 2015 show in Paris. Guido used Redken’s satinwear 02 prepping blow-dry lotion before blow-drying the hair smooth and pulling it into a low ponytail. He applied a hairnet to the ponytail and twisted it into a low chignon. To add an undone feel to the classic Frenchwoman style, Guido curled two front pieces of hair, left out on either side, before spraying the hair with quick dry 18 instant finishing spray to add texture.

For Nina Ricci, we wanted a very sophisticated French look. We applied satinwear 02 prepping blow-dry lotion to the hair to make it super smooth before blow-drying it and creating a center part. We pulled the hair into a really low knot and covered it with a net, leaving it so that you can see the net, which feels very French. We pulled the hairline out and then used a curling iron to create a little bit of movement so that the final look is one that is very soft, feminine and sensual. Guido, Redken Creative Consultant
