Big is back
Marc Jacobs // NYFW - Guido Palau
Bigger isn’t always better… but it is this season! In case you haven’t heard, the 70s are back in a big way so it’s time to brush up on your backcombing skills and dust off your liquid liner.
With interpretations of this trend palpable on international runways right around the world it was the Marc Jacobs show at NYFW that really got our heads turning with a modern interpretation courtesy of the legendary Guido Palau, Redken’s Creative Consultant.
"This is a styled-then-slept-in look - this girl had a glamorous hairstyle the night before and this is it the moment she gets up the next day and is maybe walking down the street for a coffee,” Palau explains. “The height around the face which I created with my new fashion-week go-to product, Redken quick tease 15, is enough to highlight the face, but is not over-the-top Amy Winehouse height. In addition, a few of the models had their hair colored very blonde and black, creating a stronger and more graphic silhouette which compliments this collection."
Follow these simple steps that will have you runway ready in next to no time!
1. Apply a generous amount of guts 10 root targeted spray foam from roots to ends and blow dry straight.
2. Create a deep left part that is not perfectly clean, but defined.
3. Starting from the crown, begin to create volume by holding up small sectionn of hair straight up and away from the head. Spray root area with quick tease 15. Hold each section up for a few seconds as it dries and let fall, continuing on the next section and throughout the entire head for an all-over backcombed effect.
4. Gather hair into a low ponytail at the base of the head, leaving the height on top and add powder refresh 01 for extra matte texture.
5. Using fingers pull a few wisps out of the final pony ensuring it doesn't look too “done”, encouraging a softly disheveled effect.
Pop on your cat eye sunglasses and nude lipstick to complete the look.
