Bottega Veneta – Runway – Milan Fashion Week Womenswear Autumn/Winter 2014

Redken Creative Consultant Guido used extensions to add a twist on a classic ponytail. Once the extensions were in place, Guido used iron shape 11 finishing thermal spray and a flat iron to achieve the blunt straight finish at Bottega Veneta.

The hair for Bottega Veneta is clean and sharp, which is a bit of a departure from previous seasons. In the past, the hairstyles were easier, softer and more natural. A sort of 90’s minimalism inspired me, so the hair is simple with blunt lines. Hair extensions were used to create a very long fake ponytail that resembles the same thickness and consistency of a horse’s tail. There is certainly an intended element of artificiality to the hair.”

-Guido, Redken Creative Consultant
