Redken Creative Consultant Guido created a ’40s-meets-’70s style at Bottega Veneta’s Milan show by pin-curling hair, letting it cool and brushing it out before sweeping a section across the forehead and pinning. KEY PRODUCTS: Redken Guts 10, Iron Shape 11
Aveda Global Styling Director Allen Ruiz fashioned full-bodied, texturized halos of hair at Ann Yee’s New York show.
