NYFW Trend: Well-Tailored Hair at Marc Jacobs
The neat-as-a-pin look at the Marc Jacobs show in Manhattan was a diversion from the looser, choppier looks of seasons past. Time to tighten up those styles!

For Fall/Winter 2014, Redken Creative Consultant Guido created a very mode shaped and chic bob, which is a new twist for designer Marc Jacobs. In the past, Guido has created choppy, punk-inspired styles for the Marc Jacobs shows.

The cut is quite blunt, but the style and finish stems from a high-end conception of hair that requires an immaculate finish. The use of wigs only added another level of perfection to this chic look.

"The idea of tonality played heavily into the whole design aesthetic for Marc Jacobs," says Redken Creative Consultant Guido. When Marc and I met to discuss the hairstyle, he presented a very clear conception of the color swatches and makeup shades that he had in mind. As a result, the tonality of the color, the makeup and the clothing were all paired together to give a monochromatic hue from head to toe."

Create the Look:

1. Apply hardwear 16 super-strong sculpting gel to dry hair from the root-to-ends and comb through until hair is completely saturated
2. Divide hair into two sections (top and bottom) in the back
3. Clip the bottom section down and out of the way
4. Using a finishing brush, start to brush the top section flat against the head, following the round of the head in one direction. Repeat with each section, making sure it's very clean and neat-looking when finished
