The Braid is back! At Valentino, hairstylist Guido Palau gave models a side braid. “It’s just a very simple braid, but it’s funny – it is so simple, it feels really nice,” he said, adding: “It feels almost like a girl from a Dutch painting or something.”
Palau used hair extensions, so each braid was the same length. Redken Satinwear 02 Ultimate Blow-Dry Lotion and Redken Fashion Work 12 Versatile Working Spray were used to create the look. A basic black leather headband was added to finish the look.
The beauty was girly and soft. Makeup artist Pat McGrath said the beauty look was based on “portraiture.” She groomed models’ brows, added a soft brown around eyes, left lids pale and lips nude, then applied blush to cheeks.
