A day-old blowdry has its own kind of charm. More effortless and lived in than it’s bouncy first-day counterpart, it’s a kind of surprise twist of the hair universe: somehow, hair that you’ve slept on can be just as good or even better than when it was freshly done.
To balance out the bold ’80s silhouettes of Emanuel Ungaro’s fall 2013 collection, Redken’s Guido Palau set about recreating that day-old blowout look. The end result was richness without volume, movement without bounce; the effect of hair that had volume that has settled. If hair has a memory (and according to Guido, it does) then creating this look is like creating the echo of a blowout without having to wait a day.
This is effortless looking hair that takes effort, but – as Guido points out – it’s the small things that make a different. Go through this process if you want hair that’s rich and luxurious but “not too silky-smooth.” As he explains, “it’s not grungy, but I still wanted it to feel light and easy and not too perfect. It’s glamorous and very 80’s; a rich girl’s hair.”

Note that backstage the double blow-drying process was used; but if you’re short on time you can still get a smooth and gorgeous hair look by simply following steps 1-3.
