Guido Palau Talks Hair

Legendary hairstylist Guido Palau, who developed the new Zara Hair line and worked on Edward Enninful’s final cover for British Vogue, has done runway hair for pretty much every fashion label (Prada, Valentino, Marc Jacobs) and cut the hair of all the top models (Kaia Gerber included). He’s here to tell us about his career path in the fashion industry, share his creative process, and talk about some of the products he’s created for brands like Redken. This was Guido’s first podcast interview ever, and it originally aired in 2019; we’re replaying it now, with a new introduction, to celebrate all the gorgeous work he’s been doing lately.
