Guido Palau, lead hairstylist for Redken, wanted models to look clean and put together.

“It’s a very sporty collection,” said Dick Page for Shiseido. “So we wanted a very natural look.” Page “took down the lip” with a bit of concealer and added “a little gloss on the lid” as well as a “flush on the cheek.”


“We just wanted a general impression of pretty,” said Page. “It’s how everyone would like to look in the morning.” Page groomed and slightly filled in the brows, where needed, and highlighted the face with a trio of peach and pink powders to create a glow. “I’m putting blush where the face is naturally animated,” said Page, who finished the look with Perfect Mascara Full Definition, launching next spring.

“It’s a complicated way of doing an easy chignon,” said Palau, who channeled the mid-Nineties in the style.

“It’s designed, not undone. We didn’t want it to look like she did it herself.”


To create the updo, Palau flipped a ponytail in on itself “to make a bump.” He then secured it with a silver clip, allowing some of the hair to fall at the crown of the head. Palau then smoothed Redken Shine Brilliance Gloss 01 Smoothing Serum onto the front of the style for a “shiny” finish. To keep everything in place, he completed the style with Redken Forceful 23 Super Straight Finishing Spray.
