Girl meets Boy

Stella and Arizona are blurring the lines between boys and girls

I noticed at a few shows the play on masculine/feminine. Dolce & Gabbana and Giambattista Valli both took chose to feature a modern Rockabilly quiff for some of their models. The masculine looks created for both shows were a hybrid of Boys Don’t Cry Brandon Teena and Johnny Depp’s Cry Baby character. I loved the addition of “sideburns” to Dolce & Gabbana girls. Redken Creative Consultant (and I might add one of the most incredible hair masters of all time) Guido Palau explains his ideas for this season’s Dolce & Gabbana show in Milan. “The looks at Dolce & Gabbana were a classic play on femme fatale, where women played with their masculine and feminine sides, it is very fun and liberating.” He created two separate looks – one feminine, a Sicilian-inspired loose twisted chignon and the other a bit more masculine, a French twist quiff.” 

Here’s how you can create this look yourself straight from the Master stylist, Guido himself:
–          Prep hair with generous amounts of structure wax 17 classic styling wax.
–          Leave out a section at the front and pin this up into the 50s looking quiff.
–          Part on the side and gather hair at nape of neck and twist up toward top of head pinning as you go up. Until all hair is pinned in.
–          Pull out bits on the side just in front of the ears and let drop down 2 inches to create ‘sideburns’ and then secure remaining end of hair back into the rest of the updo.
–          Finish with heavy amounts of forceful 23 to hold the look in place.
