Guido Palau’s coifs were as intricate as ever, albeit a touch softer.
“There were many permutations,” Palau said of the basket-weaving technique he employed backstage. “But in the end it was highly technical yet very simple.”
Palau divided models’ hair into three sections before adding extensions over and under natural strands for a woven effect, ending each panel in a skinny braid. Back panels were folded flat against the head and pinned in place before the entire head was sprayed with Redken’s Forceful 23 hair spray—and lots of it. At last count, 60 bottles had been used to hold things in place.
