In the hands of master hairstylist Guido Palau, hair isa material that can be sculpted and molded in inﬁnitevariations. Palau’s creativity was on full display thisseason—from the Seventies-inspired Diana Rosstribute at Marc Jacobs to the highly polished chic coilsat Louis Vuitton to the simple elegance of an extra-long ponytail at Loewe. “This season is about a strongwoman and a rich, romantic glamour, but also a littledecadence,” says Palau, who serves as Redken’screative consultant, too. “We did everything from smallminimalist head shapes to full ﬂouncy curls and frizz.”Texture played a key role, particularly highshine that Palau says “looks as if it’s beenpainted on…Even a small style close to thehead can be as glamorous as big hair.” Onthe other end of the spectrum, Palau usedextreme volume, inspired by icons like Rossand Grace Coddington, “to give hair a ruggedtexture, adding a little youthful fun.”
