RAFW 2010: Super Slick (Again) For Gary Bigeni

If you're sensing that super-slick hair is big news for Spring/Summer 2010-11, you'd be right. We've seen it heaps so far, but unlike this past New York Fashion Week, it's not often taken throughout the whole hair, just combed through until the nape of the neck. Darren Borthwick, the Redken Hair Director, said he came up with the style because he "didn't want to distract from the collection." The "slick, young and modern" style used Redken Stand Tough gel on the roots, which was then combed through using a really fine-toothed comb. If you're not sure how much gel to use, then "saturated" is the amount that you're looking for. More is more, it seems. The ends were kept dry and a little, ever-so little, was worked in the ends. It was set with Quick Dry Hairspray which, as its name suggests, is a dry product so there's a clear contrast of textures. Again. Not that I'm complaining, I love DB's work and it's such a simple style to re-create.
