Alberta Ferretti hardened up a little for fall 2012. Her collection was a mix of her trademark soft femininity and a more masculine edge, incorporating leather and tailoring alongside floating sheer fabrics and beading. The hair and beauty look was stronger to match: neutral shades on the face creating strong contours, and a slick center part hairstyle that gathered at the nape of the neck into a low knotted chignon.
Lead creative stylist from Redken, Guido Paulo, created the clean and strong yet elegant hairstyle. Here’s how.
If you have long enough hair you can create the ‘knot’ effect by pushing the end of the tail back through the center of the chignon. Pin it securely in place.
You can make the knotted chignon looser or tighter depending on your preference, but to replicate the style at Alberta Ferretti, it was all about mixing strength with femininity – so keeping it clean but not overly strict is the way to go.
