Redken Consultant Guido created a low, messy knot for a hairstyle that was ultimately very feminine at the Bottega Veneta Spring 2013 show yesterday. It was as pretty, wearable and delicate as the light, floral collection itself – done-up and styled, yet loose and wispy as if a few pieces had fallen out as this woman went about her day.
“The look at Bottega today is very soft and pretty, center-parted with a dry texture and loosely knotted with a fewwisps that escape. The inspiration is a little 70’s and also Victorian.”
Create the Look:
Roughly blow-dry hair with a diffuser.
Create a clean center part and apply powder grip 03 mattifying hair powder at the roots, and then gently backcomb random pieces.
Gather hair into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck and tie with elastic.
Backcomb the ponytail with a boar-bristle brush, twist into a low messy chignon and pin with a few pins; leave some wispy pieces out of the style in front.
Finish with powder refresh 01 aerosol hair powder/dry shampoo particularly around the crown for added dry, airy texture.
