Hello, Holiday Hair! Get Festive With These 5-Minute Styles, Straight From the Runway
And they're all doable in just 5 minutes
If there’s one thing that has a constant spot at the top of our Christmas lists, it’s good hair — but unlike the Kardashians, we sadly don’t have a glam squad on call. So in order to create fancy-looking hairstyles on ourselves, we tappedRedken‘s Global Creative Director, Guido Palau, to tell us how to create a few of his Spring/Summer 2016 runway hairstyles as quickly as possible.
The Gilded Bun at Dolce & Gabbana
Don’t want to wash your hair? This textured bun/headband combo will disguise the grease and give you a festive look.
1. Starting with center-parted straight hair, add texture and grip with a light mist of dry texturizing spray, like Redken’s Wind Blown 05, all over.
2. Pull your hair into a high ponytail at the crown of your head, leaving out a few front pieces and baby hairs for a slightly undone look, and secure it with an elastic.
3. Twist the length of your ponytail into a messy bun, secure with bobby pins, and finish with your favorite bold headband.
- The Side Sweep at Roberto Cavalli
- Switch up your usual blowout with a fun, vintage-looking part.
- 1. After blow drying, apply a volumizing mousse, like Redken Guts 10 the front two inches of your hair, and use a blow dryer to lift it up and to the side, creating volume at the roots.
- 2. Perfect your ’50s-style sweep by smoothing down it with a comb, making sure to keep the front lifted.
- 3. Keep it in place by spraying extreme hold hairspray all over hair (Palau used Redken Triple Take 32), focusing at the top of your head.

- The Sleek Braid at Celine
- This look can be created straight from the Cavali side sweep — but to start from scratch, it’s just as simple.
- 1. Rake a nickel-sized amount of sculpting cream, like Redken Shape Factor 22, into the front section of your hair before blow-drying and lifting at the roots, creating height and a side part.
- 2.With another drop of sculpting cream in your palms, slick your hair back into a clean ponytail, securing it the middle of your head with an elastic.
- 3. Apply a holding paste, (Palau used Redken’s Braid Aid 03) to length of the ponytail, and then braid your hair to the ends, wrapping it with a small elastic.
