Runway Hair Report (Paris): Redken for Balenciaga & Nina Ricci
Rounding out Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2010, Guido, Redken Creative Consultant is backstage in Paris creating hairstyles that are both eye catching and inspirational! Check out his inspiration and products used today at the Balenciaga and Nina Ricci shows to complement the designers’ Fall/Winter 2010 collections!
Wanting to the look to appear slightly futuristic, Guido created a sophisticated look at Balenciaga to compliment, not compete with the clothes. "Balenciaga design house is very forward thinking and great to work with, which allows me to create a vision for the hair that compliments the clothing." – Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

2. Layer in hardwear 16 super strong gel so each strand is saturated. Comb product in so hair is smooth without bumps.
3. Secure in a low pony tail at nape of neck.
4. Make sure hair is along the hair line and pulled tight without any dips.
5. Wrap hair into a knot and secure with pins.
