Guido Palau is the Babe Ruth of the fashion world, an all-star hair stylist who plays on the most elite teams and consistently knocks it out of the proverbial style park with every outing. The list of designers who tap him to create the hair looks for their runway shows and ad campaigns includes Miuccia Prada, Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen, Lanvin, Proenza Schouler and on and on; editorially, Palau works primarily with two photographers—Steven Meisel and David Sims—for influential style bibles like French, Italian and American Vogue. And he doesn’t just create the trends that trickle down—as Redken’s creative consultant, he also disseminates them. Here, on the eve of the Fall/Winter 2012 fashion show marathon, Palau took some time out to talk about culture, creativity and the continual drive to banish boredom.
