Using Redken products, Guido created a range of hair personalities at various New York Fashion Week shows tailor-made to models' individual features, taking notes from characters and themes like "cool New York girl", the chic 1970s woman and colorful anime.
After a busy week, the super stylist answered a few questions about hair trends for spring and what stylists can take away from Fashion Week and bring back into their salons:
MODERN SALON: Did you see any trends emerge from the New York shows?
Guido: The trends for the New York shows were tribes, gangs of girls with an adventurous spirit, utilizing personality and individuality. At Alexander Wang, we created a gang of surfer girls with sun-bleached ends. Each girl had a haircut that suited their texture and face shape. They were still their individual selves within the gang.
MS: What can the salon stylist learn from these shows?
Guido: Salon stylists can learn from the shows to look for a client's personality, individuality, personality of hair texture and lifestyle and work with those traits rather than against them.
MS: What tips do you have for the salon stylist in re-creating these looks?
Guido: A stylist can experiment with products. For example, at Wang, we used Redken Fashion Waves 07 to give the girls that day-at-the-beach texture.
