Get to Know the Stylist behind Fashion Week's Hottest Hair Trends
Whether you've seen his work on the runway or in magazines, Guido has made himself the authority on fashionable hair. Recently, he was named one of fashion's top 25 most influential people by the British Fashion Council. Now meet the man behind the hair trends and find out what he has to say about Fashion, style and more…
What does amazing style mean to you?
Amazing style is confidence and nonchalance. It's hard to define where that comes from, but when you see it you know it. Fashion is something you put on, but style is something within.
What are the Top 5 products and tools in your backstage styling kit?
A tail comb, forceful 23 super strength finishing spray, shine flash 02 glistening mist, glass 01 smoothing serum, and a blow dryer.
What are your secrets to staying balanced and making it through the craziness of Fashion Week?
Just being me in the sense of keeping my feet on the ground, not getting carried away by the rush of Fashion Week – being part of it but having a few moments to myself.
Fill in the blank: A great hairstyle is…
One that you own and doesn't own you.

What's a simple trick any woman can use to glam up her hair fast?
Adding a hair accessory or putting a little height at the crown, whether it be with a ponytail or worn down – it adds instant glamour.
How can women interpret Fall/Winter 2011’s top runway hair trends for everyday?
The trends this season are all very wearable styles. If you’re wearing a ponytail, use aerate 08 to add a little height at the crown to make it more 60s, or pull out a few pieces of hair around your ears for a boyish nod. Pull hair away from your face into a ponytail without pieces coming out for a strict look, or create soft texture for a feminine feeling. A woman can wear all these styles – I see one woman this season going through different phases of her week and changing her style accordingly.
