Kate Sylvester Redken Hair Look

Hair Look: Messy Marilyn

Hair Director: Richard Kavanagh for Redken

INSPIRATION

For the hair look at Kate Sylvester, Redken Hair Director Richard Kavanagh wanted to relate the look back to the collection, “I wanted to tie in the lace detail from the collection into the hair with a really nonchalant braid.”

“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. Secondly, Kate’s collection was actually based on Bert Stein’s portrait of Marilyn Monroe – ‘The Last Sitting’. It’s not a typical, done-up Monroe image. 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

I wanted it to exude quality and shine, and yet still move and float naturally as the girls walked down the runway,” says Redken Hair Director Richard Kavanagh. “Because shine was so important to this look, I wanted every model’s hair to be prepped with Redken Diamond Oil before styling, the give that ultra-chic feel.” Continue Reading

Detangling hairbrushes are available from just about everywhere now but when it comes to trusted brands there are a few to choose from. In this post I’ve got Tangle Teezer vs Dessata in a battle of the detangling brushes. Both are priced almost identically (here in Australian anyway) so which brush is worth your dollars?

For this battle I’ve selected the Tangle Teezer The Original to go up against the Dessata Maxi Detangling Brush.
