    Hairstyles with braids and pigtails for Spring/Summer

    With Braids”
    “The All-American look of Alexander Wang is best met with a casual and easy side braid,” says hair designer Guido Palau.

    Guido Palau, creative consultant for Redken, brings us these hairstyles with braids and pigtails for spring/summer. Guido is world renown for his innovative hairstyle creations. He works with the industry’s most prestigious fashion houses including Prada, Marc Jacobs, Versace and Louis Vuitton to name a few.

    He shared with us how to duplicate these cool hairstyles with braids and pigtails with an attitude which he designed to coincide with Prada and Alexander Wang’s spring/summer collections. These hairstyles are sure to be seen out and about this spring and summer no matter if you’re wearing Prada or not! He brings them to us from the runways in Paris, New York, London and Milan.

    “By adding an a few hair extensions it gives it much more drama and length, than if I just used their own hair,” says Guido. “In giving it an asymmetrical fringe look, it gives it a bit of sexiness rather than it being a center part for instance.” He goes on to say it is a look you can create at home because it’s more of a disheveled look and should not look perfectly coiffed.

    To get this look: Rough dry the hair and apply Redken Thickening Lotion 06 to damp hair. Create a side part and dry bang area up at root to create lift and a droop over the eye area. Scrunch hair to create a textured look. (Guido clips in one or two extensions also for more length and drama.) Pull to the side and do a basic school braid. If needed, pin the bang side of hair into braid so it doesn’t fall in the face. Spray lightly with finishing spray.

    From his “Urban Romance” collection Guido creates this modern version of a schoolgirl-ish, kind of 60’s look with a little bit Bridgette Bardot and a little bit grungy look about it. It’s a mussy, ‘ruffed up schoolgirl’ look that brings with it a sense of ‘naughtiness” says Guido. The back of this hairstyle is sprayed to flatten and smooth it against the head.

    To get this look: Ruff dry the hair using Redken Thickening Lotion 06 on damp hair. Backcomb slightly at crown. Create a deep side parting and secure two pigtails with hair colored bands. Pull hair out enough to cover one eye. Pull some hair up to stand up slightly at crown. Use a strong holding hairspray like Redken’s Forceful 23 Spray to smooth back and sides to the head shape. Be sure to let part of the ear show through to give this the ‘schoolgirl’ look. Oh . . . and don’t forget the ‘tangerine’ lipstick with high peaks to create a pouty mouth to complete the look!!
