“I normally do artistic, ‘Don’t move your head’ looks,” says Palau, but here, “it’s a filmic, Brigitte Bardot–esque, kind of Catherine Deneuve classic sexy.” Palau used Redken Guts 10 Root Targeted Volume Spray Foam to rough-dry volume into the hair, teased the locks into shape, and then applied Redken Fashion Work 12 Versatile Working Spray for light hold before finally molding the ’do with his hands. “There’s something about the ’60s hair that’s still appealing,” he says. “It was a time of freedom for women and girls who became cool.”
Palau applied Redken Satinwear 02 Prepping Blow-Dry Lotion and, after drying the hair, used Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Two Day Extender to create a nonchalant “airiness.” “It’s the sexy, outgrown ’60s fringe, à la Françoise Hardy and Jane Birkin,” he says. “It’s boyish in a way, like they hadn’t really bothered—and back then it felt rebellious.”
