The looks for the Dior runway this season served us up a dark, yet glamorous vibe that we were instantly drawn to. Hair stylist Guido Palau did not disappoint as usual with his typical magical touch. We love the image above as well as the one to follow. Guido created chignon's wrapped with a small braid and then perfectly placed veil's to add a dramatic effect.

Fendi absolutely hit the nail on the head with the hair for this seasons show. We instantly fell in love with these bowl cuts that one right after the other were a different variation of the cut as well as dreamy hair color shades that you'll surely be running to your hairstylist for. Here are some we pulled for you. What a beautiful tribute to the late Karl Lagerfeld this was.
The hair for Valentino was part vibrant and part classic. Styles created by hairstylist Guido Palau were classic low twisted styles that were soft and almost ballerina like, while others were a complete contradiction of rag doll inspired bright colored wigs that added a whole other dimension to the show. Take a look at some of the images from the Valentino show that we gathered for you.
The classic low slung styles can be created using our Iles Formula Finishing Serum to control the hair during styling as well as instantly transforming the hair into spun silk and runway ready hair.

One of our favorite things about the looks for Maison Margiela was the gender neutral approach. John Galliano always hits the mark with his keen eye for style and this year he lived up to that. The no gender hairstyles were definitely a favorite of ours. Each of the hairstyles different from the next, but all fit the theme of the show. Hats added a nice touch to the hair.
One of the most noticeable aspects of Givenchy was that all of the hair looked so healthy and shiny. We also loved the versatility of the styles, it wasn't necessarily a theme for the hair but more of a celebration of different types of styles that paired perfectly with the garments. One of our favorites is the first image below created of course by the talented Guido Palau.

What we especially loved about the hair for Armani Prive was the attention to detail and the delicately placed fabric rose shaped scrunchies that almost resembled mini hats. The old Hollywood charm that the show presented is always appreciated. The super shiny sleek styles with intricate details in the back were a perfectly executed.
Viktor & Rolf
While everyone else kept the styles more classic and soft, Viktor and Rolf decided to go in a different direction with a late 80's inspired crimped and undone style for the hair. The hairstyles paired well with the attire and definitely took you for a stroll down memory lane.
Another favorite of ours was the hair for Giambattista Valli. The models hair was dried to look natural with an organic free feel looking so lustrous and healthy. It really reminded us of our Iles Formula products and how stellar they are for creating these beautiful, healthy and lustrous hairstyles. We especially loved the balance between that extra small hair accessory perched in the perfect spot a top of each head, with those voluptuous gowns. The images are stunning and the attention to detail was spot on.

Last, but certainly not least was Chanel. One of the most spectacular aspects of a Chanel show is how they are always set to a perfectly situated backdrop that literally takes you wherever the theme is. This season you felt as though you were sitting in a library and the models looked like the most fashionable librarians you could ever imagine. Slick deep parted hairstyles, and pixie cuts were the perfect finishing touch.
