Lead Hair Stylist: Brian Buenaventura for Cutler/Redken Salons

Inspiration:  “The design team had taken a trip to Paris and were inspired by that French girl who didn’t really care about her hair, but still looked put together. She was perfectly undone, so we wanted to take that coolness factor and translate that with the hair. For the women, we have two different looks – one with a middle part and easy, low ponytail. The other is a side part with the hair down. As the Parisian girls’ boyfriends, the men’s hair was still cool and left natural, as if he just ran his fingers through. Ultimately the final looks complimented the polished silhouettes of the clothing, for an effortlessly chic collaboration.” Lead Stylist: Brian Buenaventura

•    Prep the hair with Redken Guts 10 Volume Spray Foam and blow dry section by section, giving the hair volume and texture.

•    Give the hair a left side part, 1Ž4 of the way down from the middle of the hairline.

•    Take a 1 1/4″ curling iron and create an “S wave” by angling the iron vertically for a more natural curl. Repeat throughout the hair.

•    Finish by placing hair forward on the right side, leaving loose pieces in front to give it an easy, effortless feel.

Complete the look with Redken Quick Dry 18 Instant Finishing Spray.
