Kate Sylvester Redken Hair Look

Hair Look: Messy Marilyn

Hair Director: Richard Kavanagh for Redken

“The inspiration for this look was based on two things. First, we all got together and just had a brainstorming session for what we thought were the coolest looks out there. It’s a nice creative process and it also brings us together as a team,” says Redken Hair Director Richard Kavanagh.

She actually looks really effortlessly and naturally sexy, hair slightly mussed. We wanted to represent that cool essence as well as the Americana vibes happening in the collection.” Continue Reading

Sometimes, I need someone to introduce me to the things I didn’t know (or forgot) I needed. That’s what I’m offering you some end of year sales shopping inspiration by sharing some of the great goodies I picked up during the Cyber Week sales.

These are the beauty and fashion goodies I got during Black Friday, Cyber Weekend and Cyber Monday.  Continue Reading
