“I’m not affiliated with a brand anymore. After 15 years, our partnership has moved on,” he revealed to Amanda. “I’m looking forward to new adventures, new things hat might come my way. I’m open to new ideas and new projects. Maybe even do my own product, I’m not sure.”
Across that 15 year relationship, Guido used Redken as he styled an incredible roster of fashion shows across all four main Fashion Week cities, with collaborations including Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein, Burberry, Versace and Alexander McQueen, to name but a few.
Guido was also involved in helping new product development in the Redken labs, feeding back experience from styling at fashion’s frontline to help the creation of Redken favourites such as No Blow Dry, an air-drying cream that was influenced by emerging trends from Fashion Week as more shows and stylists embraced each model’s individual natural texture.
