Diesel Black Gold

Diesel Black Gold

Trembling through Grand Central Station on September 10, 2013 wasn’t just commuter trains bringing in the busy people of New York City, but also Diesel Black Gold’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection plowed through the busy New York City staple.

Diesel Black Gold’s new collection is filled with fluid fabrics in colors of white, grey, light mint green, and muted baby pink.

Models had on very clean makeup almost looking like they weren’t wearing any. Strong brows were apparent along with flesh colored cheeks and lips. Eye shadow used, if any, was the same color as the models skin tone. Beautiful fishtails from top of the head to bottom styled each models hair. Their hairs were still kept undone with perfectly placed flyaway’s poking out of the front of the hairstyle. Models wore a light pink toned highlighter at the very top of cheekbones that left for the most beautiful finish on their matte skin.

Redken Creative Consultant Guido kept the hair soft and feminine this season with a simple, yet classic French braid at Diesel Black Gold. To soften the style, Guido loosened the hair around each model's face, making the look feel more romantic. The dampness of the braid introduces a beach-like element to the overall style, making the look more casual and accessible for the everyday woman.

"I wanted the hair to be simple and quite feminine for Diesel Black Gold. I love a simple braid, in that the style is both elegant and wearable for most women. For me, a braided look will always be fashionable."

-Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Create the Look:

  • Apply outshine 01 anti-frizz polishing milk to slightly damp hair
  • Take very top section of hair and separate into three sections and begin French braiding, slightly twisting hair to give the braid a messy look
  • Continue to braid downward, keeping the hair pulled tight
  • Secure end of braid with an elastic and a piece of leather
  • Mess up hairline a bit to soften the overall look.
