Giles Deacon marked his debut as designer of Emanuel Ungaro with short sheath dresses, Lurex knits and shiny Heidi-inspired braided headbands courtesy of backstage stylist and Redken Creative Consultant Guido Palau.
“There is something very innocent about this style, but once the girls have their makeup done with dark lips, she turns into this very sexy, decadent, Helmut Newton woman,” Palau explained, referencing the type of look favored by the acclaimed German-Austrian photographer.
To create the style, Palau dampened hair thoroughly with water, combed in a center part and worked in hardwear 16 super strong gel. Next, he divided the hair into two low pigtails and braided each, securing the ends with an elastic band. He wrapped each braid over the head like a headband, secured it in place with hairpins and finished with glass 01 smoothing serum for mega shine.
