Paris Fashion Week Spring/ Summer 2013
Redken Creative Consultant Guido took inspiration from the Spring 2013 Nina RIcci show itself yesterday in Paris, creating an edgier hairstyle for a more provocative collection than seen from the house in recent years. The shiny French twist Guido styled was a departure from the more demure, ladylike styles with matte textures he usually creates for Nina Ricci. Yet the updo still retained that sense of classic feminine beauty and would be easy for a woman to recreate herself, just as the more eroticized collection still featured a number of it's signature cocktail dresses and wearable, everyday styles.
"I created a simple French twist today at Nina Ricci, it's a very feminine look and extremely easy to do. I also like that it's in fact very modern. I pulled out a few pieces towards the nape of the neck to give the style a little character, to ensure it wasn't completely perfect, she's still a real woman."

1.) Apply full frame 07 all over volumizing mousse to dry hair from roots to ends, raking through with fingers
2.) Brush through with a natural brush - don't make a part.
3.) Blow-dry hair that's been damped from the full frame 07 with a diffuser, lifting at the roots and pulling toward the back of the head, so it's not flat.
4.) Wrap hair up into a French twist, using end of a tail comb to tuck the ends of the hair under the twist and a few bobby pins to hold in place.
5.) Pull a few bits of the ends of the hair out of the twist and down towards the nape in the back, taking care to keep it tight so it keeps its shape.
6.) Spray entire twist with forceful 23 super strength finishing spray to hold the shape and a generous amount of shine flash 02 glistening mist for shine.
