Backstage with Rodney Cutler and Redken for Tadashi Shoji A/W 2015

Show: Tadashi Shoji A/W 2015

Lead Hair Stylist: Rodney Cutler for Cutler/Redken Salon

Inspiration: “This collection is all about airy, easy, elegance with a fresh take on old Hollywood style. Once I saw the fabrics, I knew I wanted to complement this idea. The hair looks luxe with the voluminous curls, but young and sleek in the front with the severe part and silky texture.” ~Lead Stylist, Rodney Cutler

Step-by-Step:

1. Apply a generous amount of Redken Full Frame 07 – All Over Volumizing Mousse from roots to ends of towel-dried hair.

2. Create a deep side part and separate three sections. Two in the front, from the side part directly down behind the ears, and a third in the back with the remaining hair.

3. Blow-dry the back section with an upward motion to create volume. Blow dry side sections pulling the hair away from the face for a slicked back look.

4. Curl full head using a 1 1/4 inch curling iron. Pin each curl to the head using U pins. Allow hair to cool.

5. Once hair is set (cold) gently brush to drop the curl and smooth the crown, for a natural amount of volume.

6. Rub a dime size amount of Redken Velvet Gelatine 07 – Cushioning Blow Dry Gel into your hands, apply where needed to keep the sides flat and neat. Brush through.

7. Spray Redken Wind Blown 05 – Dry Finishing Spray all over to secure look.

• Redken Full Frame 07 – All Over Volumizing Mousse ($17)
• Redken Velvet Gelatine 07 – Cushioning Blow Dry Gel ($18)
