Redken for Yves Saint Laurent Fall RTW 2010 - It's All in the Details!

Religious symbolism for Yves Saint Laurent, Paris, Fall 2010 Designer Stefano Pilati says no, however the black capes, the willowy head coverings, the gold chain pendants, all seemed to whisper something feeling a bit "nunlike".  Of course also present were garments nothing close to frocks Sister Mary Theresa would have hanging in the closet.  How about sheer black blouses showing boobies as an example.  Still, this collection is all about the detail ... and I'm loving that pink lip! (note to self: find out more about the beauty look ... yep)

Inspired by the refined, modern, elegant and bourgeois French woman, Redken Creative Consultant Guido created a stylized, sophisticated chignon with lacquered look around the front hair line. “At Yves Saint Laurent, we took a classic chignon and modernized it for this house; the key was using Redken hardwear 16 super strong gel along the hairline to give it that lacquered effect.” -Guido, Redken Creative Consultant


Redken hardwear 16 super strong gel
Redken forceful 23 super strength finishing spray

Create the look:

Pull hair into low ponytail, keeping the sides smooth
Wrap the hair in upon itself to create a flat chignon
Secure with pins and forceful 23 super strength finishing spray to hold
Along the front portion of the hairline, apply hardwear 16 super strong gel from the hairline to about 3 inches back
Finish with forceful 23 to create a very sophisticated, lacquered style
