Always the free spirit, the nymph that borrows from the otherworldly, the Alberta Ferretti woman is ceaselessly envisioned to look like a modern-day goddess, infatuated with beauty about as much as she is in love with simplicity. So it’s no wonder that for spring 2016 she sees to channel the Grecian allure.
Mirroring her enchanting nature, the Grecian goddess hair created by Redken Global Creative Director, Guido Palau is all about simplicity with a twist, gold accents and a little bit of texture adding to the impossible softness of the look that translates just as gorgeously on and off the runway.
Read on below for a step-by-step guide on how to recreate the romantic up-do at home.
How to: the Grecian goddess hair at Alberta Ferretti .
Seeing how it asks for a clean foundation, start building the hairstyle on damp hair after having previously washed and conditioned your locks. Use a heat protectant hair primer to prep the hair, spraying it all over the locks and combing through.
Backstage at Alberta Ferretti, Guido Palau used the Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer.
Proceed to blow dry the hair using a round brush, working at the roots to create volume. When pulling the brush through your hair, choose to do it in an upwards motion to ensure you get curl and volume.
In order to make the hair more manageable and easy to work with, choose a dry finishing spray and apply it thoroughly all over the locks. This will create the kind of texture and friction needed when aiming to create an effortless up-do.
Guido Palau recommends using Redken’s Wind Blown 05 Dry Finishing Spray.
Using your fingers, proceed to create a deep side part. Next, take the back section of hair, twist it up into a ponytail and secure it with a gold elastic.
Twist the length of the ponytail around the head and secure it with hair pins as you go. In order to maintain the effortless appearance, make sure the pins match the color of your hair.
Continue to wrap the gold elastic multiple times around each of the two front sections of hair. Repeat the process of twisting each section around the head and securing it at the back using hair pins.
In order to soften the hairline and infuse the look with that ethereal aura, pull out baby hairs and random strands to frame your face. Finish off the hairstyle with another mist of the dry finishing spray. At Alberta Ferretti, Guido used Redken’s Wind Blown 05 Dry Finishing Spray.
