Love this “slightly punky” French Twist by Guido of Redken for Bottega Veneta’s Fall/Winter 2017 Milan Fashion Week Show. The front, not shown, was a modern take on the 1940s – with a roll – but the back of the French Twist is something else, with some pieces sticking out, just so, casual but not messy! After making the French Twist, just “pull out a few pieces using fingers, allowing them to hang loosely for a soft, romantic feel,” advises Guido, who did the hair for most of the important fashion designer shows for Fall.

Rare photo by Denis Piel of Isabella Rossellini with Terry Farrell, taken in 1982. The hair is by the legendary John Sahag, John Sahag Workshop. The fashions look like Issey Miyake. Sahag did the hair for many Paris Fashion Week Photos for the great fashion designer, many editorials in major magazines. Love the tufts of hair at the front of both models.
