GET THE LOOK:
› At Bottega Veneta, Guido’s inspiration was a young Jodie Foster in the 1976 film Taxi Driver. Key to these billowy curls? “The amount of product you use – if I used less, it would have meant less volume,” he said. Prep hair with guts 10 root targeted volume spray foam and rough-dry, then mist on iron shape 11 finishing thermal spray before curling and setting hair in pin curls. (Leave the top 2-3” of hair uncurled.) Once hair has cooled, unpin each curl, brush through to add airy volume, then sweep hair to one side and pin above the ear.
› Ready for a grown-up version of a ponytail? The elegant style seen at Loewe fits the bill perfectly. Blow-dry with full frame 07 all-over volumizing mousse, lifting hair at the roots for maximum volume, then shake powder grip 03 mattifying hair powder on the crown section by section. Now backcomb hair with a boar-bristle brush, reapply powder grip 03 and gather hair into a low ponytail.
› The beautiful side braid at Valentino was demure and innocent, yet still seductive. To get the look, blow-dry hair smooth with satinwear 02 prepping blow-dry lotion, create a center part, and comb to one side. Tuck that side behind your ear and braid (not too tightly), then smooth on a few drops of Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine. Add a leather headband to recreate the runway look, then mist on quick dry 18 instant finishing spray.
