PFW: SS16 Akris x Guido Palau Headbands and Natural Wave

Akris SS16 Headbands

Akris SS16 Paris fashion week show was a delight of futuristic, mod, and innovative styles straight from Sweden. The designers created dresses and pantsuits in interesting textiles and played an almost 90’s like homage to the future with goggle-like reflective sunnies and thick, elastic headbands. Key hairstylist Guido Palau created a natural hairstyle adorned with black headbands to complement the modern, minimalistic collection. 

“Albert and I talked about the Akris woman and what he likes to see on the runway, which is often quite clean and minimal, and this season, it’s a very easy, light look,” says Guido. “I started by washing the girls’ hair with Redken’s All Soft Shampoo and Conditioner, which gives the hair a very gorgeous, rich texture, and then used Redken’s Wind Blown 05 to add a little bit of lift at the roots and enhance the natural texture. Then I placed the black headbands in the hair to keep it away from the face.”
