The first thing that you can steal from the Prada fall 14 runway is the severely tight hair, think of it as the best reason not to wash your hair today.
Miuccia Prada’s “Act 2” collect referenced German avant-garde culture with austere simplicity that gave way vivid and bold outerwear, some the most flamboyantly fabulous jackets, that I may just want to add to my wish list. Along with THOSE red boots. Gosh, I don’t know about you, but I can’t stop thinking about red boots for fall 2014.
But, back to the slicked back ballerina bun.
Pulled back hair has been seen on so many runways this season, and we have the easy-peasy hairstyling tips from Guido, the Prada hairstylist and Redken Consultant.
The hair for Prada is actually identical to the look Redken Creative Consultant Guido created for the eight women that were featured in the men’s show. The Fall/Winter 2014 women’s wear show was meant to be a continuation or a second act to the men’s show, so the continuity of the hairstyles helped bridge the two collections together. Guido coated the hair from root to ends with flex move ability 05 and then used his hands, rather than a comb, to gather the hair into a low, tight bun.
“The Prada look features a very basic idea of hair. The ballerina-esque bun is minimal, imperfect and really shows off the model’s unique features. I was inspired by Visconti films and ballerina dancers, who are often incredibly elegant but severe in many ways. Dancers always work with severity, which is why there is tightness to the hairstyle. Each of these girls is their own character, and I think the performance hair and makeup, paired with the Prada collection, makes it seem as if the dancers have changed their clothing, but left their hair and makeup untouched. There is something very elegant and sophisticated about this narrative.” -Guido, Redken Creative Consultant
How to Create the Look:
- On dry hair, create a center part with finger
- Apply flex move ability 05 section by section from root to ends
- Gather hair with fingers to create a tight low ponytail
- Secure hair with elastic
- Twist hair into a ballerina bun
- Secure bun with pins
I LOVE that side tie scarf too! What a cute & simple accent to the slicked back hair!
