Emphasizing the femininity of the classic Valentino girl, the soft beach look created by Redken’s Global Styling Director Guido Palau for spring 2015, conjures up the spirit of the summer with deconstructed flowing waves and a center part hanging slightly over the ears.

The gold tiara with shell adornments is that one signature accessory evoking the idea of luxury, just as it meets the carefree feel of the highly-romantic and imperfect waves. All about the girl in the sun and in the sea, you too can choose to recreate the beautiful Valentino spring 2015 look at home, by following the simple instructions provided by Guido Palau, right after the break.

How to: the soft beach look at Valentino

Shampoo, condition and towel-dry your hair until it is no longer dripping wet, but it is still damp. Apply a primer with heat protection all over the hair, layering it with a texturizing sea spray. Backstage at Valentino spring 2015, Guido Palau used Redken’s Pillow Proof  Blow Dry Express Primer and Redken’s Signature Look Fashion Waves 07 Texturizing Sea Spray.

Next, create a center part using either your fingers, or a fine toothed comb. Once done, proceed to blow-dry your hair using your hands to twist the hair section by section in order to create the desired movement.

Once the hair is completely dry, you can continue to work towards achieving the softest waves by curling the hair section by section, using a 1-inch curling iron.

To emulate the same deconstructed, little bit imperfect look seen the runway, loosen the curls with your fingers and use the texturizing sea spray once again, all over the hair. To provide added texture, layer with a mist of a dry finishing spray. Guido Palau recommends the Redken Signature Look Fashion Waves 07 Texturizing Sea Spray and the Redken Signature Look Wind Blown 05 Dry Finishing Spray.

To finish off the look, apply a gold headband to the back of the head. Taking small sections of hair, begin to wrap them around the gold headband, in between the adornments (be they shells, or any other summer-inspired kind of embellishments)  in order to fully hide the band. For the  style to stay in place all day, make sure to secure it with open fasteners.
