Reporting From the Scene at Céline: Guido Palau



Unless you’re Phoebe Philo, a model, makeup artist Dick Page, or hair guru extraordinaire Guido Palau, getting backstage at Céline is not happening. Consider it the fashion equivalent of Area 51: We’re not entirely sure what goes on until the look makes its debut on the runway. Lucky for me, however, Palau served as my beauty mole—spilling the secrets behind the “easy, messy knots” here first:

“I applied Redken Satinwear 02 and blow-dried that hair so it had a beautiful, luxe quality. Then, [strands were] pulled to the back of the head [and secured with an elastic] before I twisted them round to form a knot that wasn’t too uptight—allowing a few pieces to stick out. Quick Dry 18 was misted all over to tame any wild flyaways for a finish that was floaty, soft, and pure Céline. To make it less armylike, I gave three of the girls [including Marine Deleeuw] a slight finger wave in front.”
