guido for redken hair trends for fall 2008

Okay...we are seriously dying to meet this guy. Mainly for three reasons...

1) He goes by the name Guido...that's it just Guido. Anyone who just goes by one name, has to be way cooler than us.
2) He designed and executed the hair at more than 30 shows for the Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2008 in Milan, NYC, Paris, and's that good.
3) He's Redken's Creative Consultant and appears in almost every Allure magazine feature (we've ever read) on hair.

Now do you see why he's at the top of our Need to Meet list?

We're going to be delivering you four different looks, in four parts, that will showcase Guido for Redken Fall/Winter 2008 Hair Trends.

He's provided the tips and the Redken products, to get you ready for Fall in style.

So let's start off with the first trend...Ponytail Perfection.

Guido's Tips:

-Combine textures to add interest to a ponytail.

-Apply Hardwear 16 Super Strong Gel from the forehead to the crown for a sleek finish, then pull hair into a ponytail.

-Either leave the tail free of product for natural movement, or add second-day texture by misting on Fabricate 03 Heat-Active Texturizer and blasting with blowdryer.

-To get a super sleek ponytail, as seen at Miu Miu: Prep hair with Spray Starch 15 Heat Memory Styler and create a high ponytail.

-Flat iron the tail for ultra straight results, then mist on Quick Dry 18 Instant Finishing Spray to add shine and control.

-Whether you choose a defined part or no part at all, it's key to keep your ponytail free of fly-aways - Glass 01 Smoothing Serum layered over Quick Dry 18 Instant Finishing Spray will keep fly-aways in check.

Stay tuned for Part 2...Modern Knots!
