Guido Palau is considered one of the world's most inventive, conceptual hair stylists, 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, Prada, 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 has 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.
