Hair gets glossy at Akris

01 October 2008


I nipped backstage at Akris this morning to speak to Guido, king of catwalk hair. Famous for his amazing and much-coveted textured styles, he's just surprised us all with a super-sleek and polished draped bun. 'It's a twist on classic modernity,' he told me this morning. The models' hair was slicked back into a tiny bun at the nape of the neck. Redken Hardwear was layered all the way through into the hair, with Redken Glass sprayed on for extra shine. Then, just before the girls went down the runway, they had Redken Vinyl Glam spritzed on for the shiniest hair I've ever seen. Diane Kendall, heading up the make-up team, made the models look really natural using contouring on the eyes and cheeks. 'We just wanted the girls to look gorgeous and beautiful to reflect spring,' she said. Our favourite tip to steal was foundation and Smith Rose Bud Lip Salve on the lips - simple perfection! Check out how the look came together backstage.
