Guido swept the hair up in a classic Dolce & Gabbana manner, which is synonymous with soft, romantic and truly elegant style.

Whether you’re strolling around Rodeo Drive, lunching at Spago, hitting the Oscar swag suites, or Red Carpet, the feminine and luscious Dolce & Gabbana look is always appropriate. Guido said, "I created a soft, ethereal hairstyle that was respectful of the way the designers have defined the Dolce & Gabbana woman. I used a very small amount of products to give the hair some friction and texture, but where it still felt soft. Once the hair was pinned back, I pulled out a few tendrils to add even more softness around the face. Dolce & Gabbana always take a soft approach to women's beauty."

To DIY follow these six steps:

  1. Apply body full volume amplifier to damp hair
  2. Blowdry hair with a round brush
  3. Use a curling iron to add soft waves to the hair
  4. Lightly spray pillow proof blowdry two day extender on the mid-lengths and ends
  5. Create a loose braid
  6. Twist the braid around and pin into place
