Runway Hair: Prada

Fashion month is over… until next time… As always it’s been a magical thing to follow, not just for the clothes, the shows and the front rows, but also behind the scenes, out front on the street – and of course the hair and makeup! We had a series of emails come our way last week from Milan and Paris via Redken, outlining some of the beautiful hair styling that went down and how the looks were created. A lot of them were surprisingly simple ideas (perfectly executed of course) – which we love at Undone – so we selected a few of our favourites we thought could be most easily recreated at home… Have fun, and happy hair!


“The Prada look features a very basic idea of hair. The ballerina-esque bun is minimal, imperfect and really shows off the model’s unique features. I was inspired by Visconti films and ballerina dancers, who are often incredibly elegant but severe in many ways. Dancers always work with severity, which is why there is tightness to the hairstyle. Each of these girls is their own character, and I think the performance hair and makeup, paired with the Prada collection, makes it seem as if the dancers have changed their clothing, but left their hair and makeup untouched. There is something very elegant and sophisticated about this narrative.”
