With their hypnotically bright spring 2012 collection, the fashion world saw the last of D&G on the Milan runway. Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce announced the merger of D&G with the mainline collection of Dolce and Gabbana, but they made sure the exit on stage right for the label was an optimistic one.
The monochromatic tones of printed text dresses and chaotic animal prints were glued together with free flowing, blow dried hair. Even though blow dries advertise themselves to be exceptionally casual and easy-to-achieve, in reality, they’re very conflicting. It’s important to get the optimum bounce in the roots and ensure the soft waves frame the face.
To save you from the hair-related anxiety, the mastermind behind Redken’s hair team has shared his tips to get “a gorgeous blow-out”.
