A Quick Beauty Recap From Christian Dior



In contrast to the futuristic-looking golden arches, gilded lids, and flashes of color rimmed along the upper lash lines (more to come on the maquillage later), the hair created by Guido Palau was “classic Dior.” “Raf [Simons] didn’t want to reference a particular era,” the hairstylist explained—so, when in doubt, a simple chignon was made modern with a “boyish” side part and a slick comb-over. Palau used Redken Hardwear 16 (a strong-hold gel) for hold and shape, twisted strands into a low knot, and secured in place near the nape of the neck. Shine Flash 02 was misted all over to mimic the metallic finish created with makeup only inches below.
