Guido Palau is considered one of the world’s most inventive,
conceptual hairstylists, working from the philosophy that hair
should be styled with more thought than product.
Collaborating for the past fifteen years with
designers, advertisers and editorial publications, Guido has
raised hairstyling to an art form. He works regularly with fashion
photographers Steven Meisel, David Sims and Mert Alas & Marcus
Piggot. Guido’s innovative
work is featured regularly in Italian, French, British and American
Vogue, POP, Another Magazine, V and W.
Guido’s radically expressive styles have
been seen on the runway
for such diverse fashion houses as Louis Vuitton, Calvin Klein,
Versace, Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu and Alexander McQueen.
His first book, Heads: Hair by Guido,
was published to much acclaim in 2000 and features a decade
of stunning head shots, a testament to hair as style’s
most defining signature. Guido recently teamed up with hair
care giant Redken to be a creative consultant on their various
lines of products and represent them through his work in fashion
editorial and on runway shows.
