Chignon Envy : Hot off the Milan Runway , How to tips from Redken Creative Consultant Guido



Today Guido kicked off his week in Milan with the Alberta Ferretti show, and created a very 60s chignon with a boyish swoop over the eye and small pieces left out just in front of the ears.


"Alberta has a very strong opinion about the woman she wants to send down the runway each season. This season we decided on a look that was simple 60s feel, yet stylized. Almost twiggy- like but with a boyish feel."

Redken products used to achieve this style





velvet gelatine 07 cushioning blow-dry gel





quick dry 18 instant finishing spray






 shine flash 02 glistening mist
(new! Launches April 2011, I am very excited about this product launch, being a HUGE fan of the vinyl glam 02, excited about the aerosol shine affect this mist will create. )



Create the look

- Create a low side part on the left. Wet hair and apply velvet gelatine 07 cushioning blow-dry gel and blow dry in

- Spray quick dry 18 instant finishing spray in sections and back comb to create the "Bardot-like" height at the crown

- Pull all hair into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck. Coil ponytail around itself into a chic chignon and pin with hairpins

- Pull pieces out at either side in front of the ear with a tail comb as not to disturb the rest of the hair


- Finish entire look with shine flash 02 glistening mist for extra sheen on the runway (and for your personal runway)!
