Get the Look: Dolce & Gabbana Runway Hair

Gently tousled chignon? Check. Big-day worthy hair bling? Check!

    Always on the hunt for wedding-ready hairspiration, it’s no wonder D&G’s Milan Fashion Week look caught our attention. Gently tousled chignon? Check. Big-day-worthy hair bling? Check! The best part? Far from having to be impeccable, this look’s beauty lies in its nonchalance: ‘It’s not perfect and the accessories aren’t perfect, but that’s what gives the look its charm,’ says Redken Creative Director Guido Paulo. Here, he tells us how to get the look:

    1.    Apply a 50-cent-piece amount of volumising mousse such as Redken Guts 10, $38, to damp hair, working into the hair from roots to ends. 
    2.    Use fingers to create a messy, natural part. 
    3.    Rough blow dry hair until it is 90 per cent dry, letting the last bit dry naturally. 
    4.    Add texture by spraying a fine mist of finishing spray such as Redken Signature Look Wind Blown 05, $36, over dry hair. 
    5.    Rub a 10-cent-piece sized amount of styling balm such as Redken Powder Grip 03, $33, in hands, and apply to hair from mid-lengths to ends for added grip.
    6.    Twist hair back into a loose, messy chignon that hangs over the ears, and secure with small U-shaped pins. 
    7.    Spray with a mist of finishing spray. 
    8.    Finish the look by adding accessories and jewellery. Guido’s choices were inspired by ‘various brooches, pearls and diamonds that you might find in a mother’s jewellery box back in the ‘50s.’
