HAIR TRENDS: the SCARF updo at DOLCE GABBANA spring 2013 Milan
GET the BEAUTY LOOK: We’ve seen the scarf on the hair trending a couple of times now on the Spring 2013 runway. We especially liked the summertime 60’s island patterns on the hair at Dolce & Gabbana at Milan Fashion Week. A light, loose updo ‘accessorized’ the beautiful Sicilian inspired scarves worn throughout the show. Redken Creative Consultant Guido shares with us how he styled the HAIR trend for Dolce & Gabbana, and step by step how-to [maybe try it now].
“The updo today is not really a twist, not a knot, and it’s all about the scarf and working around the scarf. In my mind it’s how a Sicilian woman would just quickly pin her hair up and then tie on a scarf. You can still see the hairline which is what keeps it from looking too severe, and there’s a little bit of height but its not too exaggerated. It’s a very light, summery look, taking some inspiration from the sixties with a little Riviera feeling, but it’s not pastiched.” -Guido, Redken Creative Consultant. by Brigitte Segura.
Create the Look:
- Apply Redken aerate 08 all-over bodifying cream-mousse from roots to ends to create some volume with a little texture when you blow-dry.
- Blow-dry straight back so that there’s no part.
- Tie on the silk headscarf folded about two inches thick, leaving about an inch of hair from the hairline, knotting scarf on the bottom to the side.
- Pin hair up into a “rough updo” that’s almost a twist or a knot and works with the hair length and type, and pin with open fasteners.
