Christopher Kane Spring/Summer 2015 Hair by Guido for Redken



Show: Christopher Kane Spring/Summer 2015

Redken Creative Consultant, Guido created a natural, beautiful hairstyle to complement the glamour and sophistication of Christopher Kane’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Using satinwear 02 prepping blow-dry lotion and Diamond Oil High Shine Airy Mist, Guido achieved a statement-making, simple style that sparkled on the runway.

“This modern, easy look simply felt right for Christopher Kane’s new collection, which is all about an unperfected, yet sophisticated type of girl. It’s very natural and undone, which created a modern and cool feeling. But, even the easy looks have little nuances that make it feel special - the way the part is very natural and a little messy, or the little wispy hairs around the face. I used satinwear 02 to blow-dry the hair smooth so it’s not frizzy, but still has some beautiful, natural movement. Then I sprayed Diamond Oil High Shine Airy Mist at the roots to add a little bit of gloss.” - Guido, Redken Creative Consultant


Redken Products Used: satinwear 02 prepping blow-dry lotion, Diamond Oil High Shine Airy Mist (launching in November)

Create The Look:

  1. Apply satinwear 02 to damp hair and blow-dry until smooth, but still keeping the hair’s natural texture.
  2. Use fingers to create a rough middle part.
  3. Bring baby hairs and flyaways forward onto the face and spray the top of the hair with Diamond Oil High Shine Airy Mist for a glossy finish.
Please note, Redken products can only be guaranteed authentic when purchased from a salon. To locate a Redken salon near you, please visit Redken online. For more tips and to stay in the know, checkout Redken on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram!

Coming Soon Christopher Kane for NARS




NARS Cosmetics announced today, September 15, its latest collaboration with fashion designer Christopher Kane. The Christopher Kane for NARS Collection will launch worldwide in May 2015 with a full color collection featuring products for eyes, lips and cheeks. Created in conjunction with Christopher Kane, the limited edition collection will be previewed later this afternoon at the Christopher Kane Spring/Summer 2015 show in London.

NARS has been a long-standing and valued partner of ours, so this collaboration was an obvious fit,” said Christopher Kane. “NARS has the same unapologetic aesthetic that is signature to the Christopher Kane brand and I’m excited to share what we’ve created together.”

The collection combines NARS’ iconic and bold beauty philosophy with Christopher’s unexpected and innovative design aesthetic. NARS and Christopher Kane have been collaborating on the Christopher Kane runway shows at London Fashion Week since 2012.


About Christopher Kane: The Christopher Kane label was launched in 2006. It began almost immediately upon Kane’s graduation from Central Saint Martins, capitalizing on the success of his award winning MA collection that had already garnered much media attention. The Christopher Kane catwalk shows, held during London Fashion Week, are a widely acknowledged highlight of the international fashion calendar. Meanwhile, Christopher Kane, the designer, has been the recipient of many industry accolades and awards including four British Fashion Awards – winning Designer of the Year in 2013 – and the prestigious Vogue Fashion Fund.
