I used to be watching Tracee Ellis Ross‘s Instagram Story the opposite day, as one does when one is having a tough day and desires to be cheered up by their imaginary greatest good friend (name me, Hint!), and up popped a photograph from her front-row seat on the Valentino high fashion present in Paris. “MY GAWD!!” she wrote over the image, which confirmed Kaia Gerber, Cindy Crawford’s daughter and supermodel in her personal proper, in a billowing, pink, feathered robe that was out-volumed solely by her hair — a straight, lengthy but mind-blowingly gigantic bouffant. No lie, I all of a sudden began smelling/tasting cucumber water, like I used to be having some type of trend stroke.
Fortunately, I am OK, and much more fortunately, hairstylist Guido (who just lately gave mannequin Lucan Gillespie a life-altering haircut for the Miu Miu runway present) has revealed how he achieved this coiffure massive sufficient to hide a small fireplace extinguisher, not less than one toddler, and numerous secrets and techniques.
Being that he is Redken’s artistic director, Guido naturally used Redken merchandise from begin to end, starting with Redken All Gentle Mega Shampoo and Conditioner. He then separated Gerber’s hair from hairline to crown into 5 sections, utilized Redken Guts 10 Quantity Spray Foam, and blow-dried it with a spherical brush. Completely doable, to date, proper? Nicely, here is the place it will get just a little more difficult to repeat the towering look.
Guido connected six hair items all through Gerber’s hair for as a lot quantity as attainable — besides essentially the most quantity attainable is absolutely solely achievable with foam padding, which Guido hid and secured with bobby pins beneath the hair on the nape of the neck and the crown. He then backcombed items of hair over the froth, gave it much more quantity with Redken Wind Blown 05 texturizing spray, and guarantee it will keep its lofty consequence with Redken Forceful 23 Hairspray.
Gerber herself appears to have liked the look, posting a number of pictures of herself on Instagram with captions implying the second was a dream come true for her.
And fairly frankly, as somebody who lived via the large hair of late-’80s and early-’90s New Jersey, it was a dream come true for me, too.
