Christian Dior Resort 2016 Collection Hair by Redken




To complement the destination-inspired designs of Creative Director Raf Simons, Redken Global Creative Director Guido created an easy, luxurious look for Dior’s 2016 Cruise Collection, which was presented at Pierre Cardin mansion on the French Riviera.

Guido’s trick to achieving the luscious locks? Simply wash hair with Redken’s All Soft Shampoo and Conditioner and let the hair air dry. Then lightly bend sections of hair around a large-barreled curling iron, apply a few drops of Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine from mid-lengths to ends and finish with a mist of wind blown 05 dry finishing spray.

“The hair for Dior cruise this season epitomizes an easy, natural texture. Each girl kept her individual texture and length. I just enhanced the shine a bit with Redken’s Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine and then sprayed wind blown 05 all over for a very beautiful, airy texture and a little volume at the roots.” -Guido, Redken Global Creative Director

Redken Products Used: Redken All Soft Shampoo, Redken All Soft Conditioner, Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine, wind blown 05 dry finishing spray

Create The Look:

Step 1: Start with clean hair by washing with Redken All Soft Shampoo and Conditioner

Step 2:Use your fingers to create a natural, off-center part, and then allow hair to air dry

Step 3: When hair is completely dry, take small sections of hair and bend them around a 1-1/2 inch curling iron to smooth the cuticles and give subtle movement

Step 4; Finish by applying a few drops of Redken Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine from mid-lengths to ends, and then misting Redken wind blown 05 dry finishing spray all over for a lightweight, airy effect.

Please note, Redken products can only be guaranteed authentic when purchased from a salon.

Redken Paris Fashion Week Recap




Show: Valentino Fall/Winter 2015 - To continue the story of the feminine, romantic Valentino woman, Redken Global Creative Director Guido created a soft style adorned with the daintiest of braids for the Valentino’s Fall/Winter 2015 runway show.

“The Valentino woman always exudes this classic, feminine, romantic beauty, which is what the hair is all about this season. It’s down with natural, loose waves so it’s very easy feeling. 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’s Braid Aid 03 to add grip and texture to hold the braids in place because they’re tiny, teeny braids. Then, I just pulled out one strand over the face to add something a little more interesting to the eye, but overall it’s a very classic look with the hair down and behind the ears.” -Guido


Redken Products Used: pillow proof blow dry express primer, satinwear 02 prepping blow-dry lotion, braid aid 03 braid defining lotion, pillow proof blow dry two-day extender

Valentino - Create The Look:

“The look at Akris this season is very Zen and cool, but still very luxurious and a little bit edgy. I custom cut these choppy, kind of punk-y wigs for each girl and then dyed them a few different shades of gray, so you have this very cool palette of grays on the runway. It’s a bit surfer-inspired, but still very modern with the different grays and textures.” -Guido

Show: Celine Fall/Winter 2015

“The look at Celine this season is very simple and natural. I’m really letting each girl’s individual personality shine through by just enhancing the natural textures and movement in the hair. I cut shorter bangs on a few of the girls, which feels a bit more punk-y and eccentric with a slight ‘50’s feeling. I washed the hair with Redken’s Frizz Dismiss Sulfate-Free Shampoo and Conditioner, let it dry naturally, and then used the Frizz Dismiss FPF 10 Fly-Away Fix finishing sheets to get rid of those little fly-aways. The final look is not over-product-y, which makes it feel super rich and luxurious.” - Guido

“At Balenciaga, I created this very chic, sculpted chignon on the top of the crown that really accentuates the long neck and gives you a beautiful, elegant silhouette. It’s kind of futuristic feeling in the way it’s molded to the head, but it’s still very polished and stylized, which makes the style look very new to the eye again. Though the shape is based on something classic, the shiny, lacquer-like finish gives it a new, modern feeling.”  Guido

PFW SS 2015 Redken Roundup: Celine, Christian Dior, Lanvin, Loewe, Maison Martin Margiela



From the refined style of Celine to the modern style of Dior and everything in between, Redken International Creative Consultant GuidoPaulo gives us the inspiration and complete “Get The Look” for Paris Fashion Week! 

Show: Celine Spring/Summer 2015

Redken Creative Consultant Guido created a classic, refined style that captured the essence of the sophisticated Celine woman for their Spring/Summer 2015 show in Paris. “The Celine look is super chic and super rich. Again, it is that beautiful easy texture we have been seeing throughout the whole fashion season. We put the hair up halfway and added these elegant gold barrettes that Celine has made that look just like a beautiful circle in the hair. It’s amazing how that one simple hair accessory can elevate this simple hairstyle into something super rich and modern. By adding Pillow Proof Blow Dry Two Day Extender and wind blown 05 dry finishing spray, the hair has this textured look that is super easy but very luxe.” Guido

Redken Products Used: Extreme Hair Strengthening Shampoo, Extreme Hair Strengthening Conditioner, Pillow Proof Blow Dry express primer, Pillow Proof Blow Dry Two Day Extender, wind blown 05 dry finishing spray

How To Create The Look:
  1. Wash hair using Extreme Hair Strengthening Shampoo and Conditioner.
  2. Thoroughly mist Pillow Proof Blow Dry express primer all over damp hair. If working with straight hair, let air-dry. If wavy or curly, blow-dry hair using a round brush.
  3. Gather top half of hair and apply a light mist of Pillow Proof Blow Dry Two Day Extender, layered with wind blown 05 dry finishing spray for light texture.
  4. Secure with barrette.


Show: Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2015

Creating the perfect combination of modern and natural, Guido let the hair make its own simple, fresh statement at Christian Dior’s Spring/Summer 2015 show in Paris. “Dior’s look is modern and very sophisticated in its non-reference to anything else but to now. I think that’s the great thing about natural hair, it doesn’t reference a specific period of time. It really, truly is a modern look. When the clothes are this beautiful, they see the natural hair and that's enough. For a modern designer like Raf, he imagines this girl of today and doesn’t reference any other era. To enhance this overall attitude, I used Diamond Oil High Shine Shampoo and Conditioner and let the hair air-dry. The center part and hair tucked behind the ears is a look that still feels luxurious but is something that real woman can identify with.” Guido

Redken Products Used: Diamond Oil High Shine Shampoo (available in November in salons), Diamond Oil High Shine Conditioner (available in November in salons)

How To Create The Look:
  1. Wash hair with Diamond Oil High Shine Shampoo and Conditioner and let air-dry.
  2. Create a natural center part using fingers.
  3. Tuck hair behind ears.

Show: Lanvin Spring/Summer 2015


For Lanvin’s Spring/Summer 2015 show in Paris, Guido created a classic knot accompanied by an elegant gold hair accessory to complement the range of both young and mature models, emphasizing Lanvin’s ability to adapt to all types of beauty. “I did very simple hair here with mess around 10 disrupting cream-paste and using my fingers to rake the hair back and put it in a classic knot. I applied a gold hair accessory underneath the knot to add a little bit of sheath and glamour. I used forceful 23 super strength finishing spray to build some shine and accentuate my raked hair, creating a very classic look. The show features a wide mix of girls – some feminine and some mature, which proves just how conducive Lanvin is to different kinds of beauty.” Guido

Redken Products Used: mess around 10 disrupting cream-paste, wind blown 05 dry finishing spray, forceful 23 super strength finishing spray

  5. Twist hair into a knot and secure with open fasteners.
  6. Finish with forceful 23 super strength finishing spray all over head. Apply gold comb underneath the knot for added elegant touch.

Show: Loewe Spring/Summer 2015


At Loewe’s Spring/Summer 2015 show in Paris, Guido created a very natural style, which has been a prominent look throughout many, shows this season. “This look is a very natural one, with an off-center side part and this texture that we have been seeing a lot during this Fashion Week season. It almost feels like the new blow-out but its super-rich looking and highlights this extremely healthy, luxurious hair. I washed the hair with the new Diamond Oil High Shine Shampoo and Conditioner for added shine and let it dry naturally, and then ran the hairdryer through the hairline to make sure it looks really beautiful. Then just tuck the hair behind the ears and go.” Guido

Show: Maison Martin Margiela Spring/Summer 2015


Guido replicated a "caught in the rain" look at Maison Martin Margiela’s Spring/Summer 2015 show in Paris to complement the unexpected feminine twists within the collection. “The hair here is a wet, just got out of the shower look so we are leaving in the hair Redken’s Extreme Anti-Snap leave-in treatment. We dampened the dry hair with water using a spray bottle to add a look of controlled wetness and combed the hair back. Just before going on the runway, we spritzed the hairline with the Extreme Anti-snap so it feels like it is sticking to neck, creating a very sensual and womanly look.” Guido
