Cutler Hairstyles At The Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2011

The heat was on in Miami both outdoors and on the runway at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2011. Rodney Cutler and his team of top-notch stylists from Cutler once again provided the hottest trends to be seen at six of the shows, including Betsey Johnson and White Sands Australia.

Show: Betsey Johnson. The Hairstyle: Edgy and editorial Braids. “The punchy, bright swimwear needed a fun and editorial up-do to go with it,” says Cutler/Redken Stylist Ryan Suhr, the lead stylist for the show.

How To: Hair Tutorial

1. Spray Cutler Volumizing Spray onto damp, clean hair

2. Section hair into two asymmetrical sections, brushing the top half into a tight ponytail at the right recession of the hairline, and repeating at the bottom half by brushing it into a tight ponytail at the bottom left of the nape

3. At the top section, create two fishtail braids, loosening the braids by lightly pulling at the sides, then wrapping the braids around each other and pin, replicating the look of a flower

4. Repeat Step 3 with the bottom section

5. Finish the look with Redken 23 Forceful Super Strength Finishing Spray

Show: White Sands Australia. The Hairstyle: Beach goddess blow out. “To compliment the beautiful, feminine prints, I wanted to give the girls an editorial, edgy look with a classic twist,” says Cutler/Redken Stylist Kelsy Osterman, the lead stylist for the show.

How To: Hair Tutorial

Spray damp hair with Cutler Volumizing Spray, and quick dry product into hair with a blow dryer to create a base of texture

Starting at the nape of the neck, lightly spray Redken 09 Workforce Flexible Volumizing Spray from roots to ends, and gently backcomb each section

Curl each section and set it with a clip, curling all the way up to the head, and repeatingly backcomb closer at the top of the head

Create a center part, leaving no volume at the top

Take out the clips and finger-comb the curls into place
