Unbeknown to many, hair super stylist Guido's second name is Palau. More commonly referred to by just his first name, the Anglo-Spanish entity is one of the most powerful creatives in the world of high fashion. Formerly a student of the revered Vidal Sasson school of excellence, Guido’s earlier career working in salons proved less than successful. Turning his focus to magazines and music videos, he is known for his trend defining moment styling the explosive Freedom, George Michaels, Guido has coiffed and crafted the glamorous locks of Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington and Cindy Crawford, shooting with Steven Meisel, David Sims and Richard Avedon. Today he is considered to be the worlds most skilled hair stylist. Approaching hair as if it were an outfit in its own right, Guidos sexy, modernist take on feminine beauty is devastating. Styling backstage on runway shows for Louis Vuitton, Alexander Wang, Prada, Dior and Valentino, Guido’s main prerogative with his signature aesthetic is to shift people’s comfort level with what they consider to be attractive.
