Phoebe Philo’s Céline Fall 2014 collection was an exercise in bringing femininity into menswear, as was the hair: out with the Daria Werbowy Bob of Spring 2013 and in with the Jared Leto man bun. For such an occasion, Guido raked back the models' hair into low-slung cinnamon twists reminiscent of an Oscar Niemeyer celebration of the female form. And, to add a bit of youthful defiance, the ends were left free—the raw edges of last year’s dresses finding a home at the nape of the girls’ necks. Here's how to get the most confident and convenient of updos:
Guido first primed the models’ damp hair with Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express before combing it back. Then, massaging Guts 10 Root-Targeted Volume Spray Foam into the roots, he blow-dried using a natural-bristle brush. The wet/sweaty/gelled texture can be attributed to Redken Mess Around 10 Disrupting Cream, which was applied to the models' roots before Guido guided their hair into low ponytails with his fingers. From there, he spun the ponytails until they twisted over themselves into the aforementioned pastry form, and secured things with an elastic so that the ends stood loose. At home, just finish with hairspray and that quintessential “ I've no time for this' Céline-girl stare.
