Runway Report – Alberta Ferretti Fall 2012

One of the many shops I instantly fell in love with while on my Florentine visit was the Alberta Ferretti boutique, if I had a fortune I would easily spend it in there.

Alberta Ferretti has a way of blending femininity and strong lines, creating a contrast of instant chic.  It’s no surprise the makeup and hair on the runway  caused a stir, it did not detract from the beauty of the collection, yet it didn’t go unnoticed.

Guido, Redken’s Creative Consultant  kicked off Fashion Week in Milan with a sharp, sleek and shiny chignon at Alberta Ferretti’s Fall 2012 show.

Her collection this season was a departure from her typical ultra-feminine wear, designed for a strong, modern woman; it was decidedly darker, more masculine and more architectural.

 There seems to be a toughness going around.  Even though Ferretti is a very romantic designer, she wanted something a little stronger than normal. We created a very clean, strict center part and sprayed fashion work 12 and shine flash 02 into the hair.  I then used my fingers to rake it down so it’s not too flat – I wanted it to have some thickness.  Then I used the shine flash 02 again to add extra shine just before the models walk.  It’s a severe look but has a very glamorous, seductive feel to it.” – Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Getting the Look:

  1. Apply Body Full Volume Amplifier throughout damp hair (which will add thickness) and blow dry straight.
  2. Create a clean center part.
  3. Pull hair into a low ponytail and apply shine flash 02 and fashion work 12 hairspray.
  4. Twist hair into a small chignon and secure with an open fastener.
  5. Finish with additional shine flash 02 for added shine and fashion work 12 to keep the chignon looking sleek and fly-away free.

The Products Used:

Body Full Volume Amplifier – Talking about Bedroom hair if worn long-and-flowing – the volume is out of this world.

 shine flash 02 glistening mist – Gives the most luxurious shine.

fashion work 12 versatile working spray – One of the best hairsprays in the world – my favorite!
