Rodney Cutler Gives You All the Tips for Gorge FALL Hair– Courtesy of REDKEN!! Fashiontribes Beauty Buzz PODCAST and BLOG!!!
powered by Audioblog.com
One of the great things about my job is that I get to talk to lots of cool people. I get phone (and sometimes "face time) with stars of the beauty and fashion worlds– not celebrities like tv or film — but people who have achieved critical success in what they do to create beauty or create style either in fabric or in hair or cosmetics.
I have been on the hunt to talk to a variety of stylists, colorists about the coming trends in beauty as reflected on the fall 2006 NYFW runways. Who to turn to? Redken of course since they have a stable of great stylists who create the looks that both men and women will be wearing in magazines, runways and also on the street 6-12 months later. The key part of the runway looks is seeing the synergy between the fashion designer, the hair stylists and the make-up artists to create a look that best defines and reflects the intent of the fashion designer’s collection.
Lucky me, I was able to talk to Rodney Cutler of the famous Cutler Salon . This uber-cutting edge salon (pun intended) has the best reviews for being unpretentious and creating looks/styles/colors that are do-able for "everywoman" and "everyman". Meaning — even you and I can duplicate the look when we get home.
If you listen to the podcast you will hear Rodney Cutler tell me about the different looks that he did for the NYFW and what was covered in the Vogue Magazine/Style.com podcasts that I got to see a few months ago on the coolest little video Ipod. Rodney Cutler talks about the different looks and what he does (or did) to create the runway looks. For him it was about creating a "defining hair" look that was reflective of the collection and even an entire season.
Two of the key tips that I got from Rodney is that you
1) need a great cut and
2) great styling products.
If you can’t see Rodney Cutler, take the download talked about below with you to your stylist and ask them to help you achieve that look.
The Redken products that Rodney Cutler recommends include the following items.
for those who color their hair– you need Color Extend:
For those who want a straight look: try this product
Rodney mentioned Vinyl Glam
Body Full Weight Lifter will give limp locks some fullness and volume.
Other products to check out for super straight hair include Align.
For those of us who want more ringlets or definition to those curls and waves that we have!
To control that frizz and give you that great hair shine- OUTSHINE is the perfect product!
FYI–another product we didn’t talk about directly, but it’s Redken for Men BULK UP Thickening Spray. Perfect for those guys with fine or thinning hair.
