Get the Look: Italian Romance at Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana presented their latest installment of the Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda project last week in Parco Teresio Olivelli by Lake Como in Italy. For the 110 female models in the show, Redken Global Creative Director Guido Palau gave each woman her own romantic look. “There’s flowers, crowns, nets, and we’ve dyed beautiful wigs with Redken City Beats and Reken SEQ Pastels. There’s some '60s-inspired chignons, some '40s hair looks. It’s a spectrum of women’s beauty,” says Palau.
