“There’s this sort of coolness about natural hair, and we’ll probably see a lot of it this season because it feels very modern.”

So says Guido Palau, Redken‘s global styling director, and master of hair at today’s Coach show. From the moment the first model stepped out wearing Stuart Vevers‘ fall 2015 designs for the brand, it was apparent just how cool the look was to be. There’s nothing fussy about it, nothing at all try-hard — the greatness of this look is that it works on every gal’s hair, because the end desired result is unique to you.

In a press release, Guido explains how aimed to keep the hair as natural as possible.

“[I] really played up the individual personalities of the girls. A lot of the shows this season want to keep the girls’ personalities — they don’t want armies.”

So how to get this individually unique, totally ideal, insouciant and cool hair?

1. Wash hair, allowing it to air dry. (Guido used sulphate-free Frizz Dismiss shampoo and conditioner from Redken.)

2. Create a part just off center to keep it just “not-thought-about” without getting messy.

3. Smooth a touch of cream for shine near the roots (Guido used Redken’s move ability 05.)

That’s it, there’s nothing else to it. Stick straight, with a bend, wavy, curly, and so on, this is the kind of styling that truly looks good all around.

Transgender Model Lea T is the New Face of Redken

Transgender model Lea T’s career is on the rise… she’s been a muse at Givenchy and now has a lucrative beauty campaign under her belt. Lea T stars in Redken’s new Chromatics hair color campaign.

Chromatics is all about individuality.

“We’re all people with our own personality, our own beauty, our own life,” Lea T said. “I love working with Redken because they appreciate all kinds of beauty. They believe in the individuality of the person, and I think that’s really important.”

It’s not surprising when the fashion industry makes accepting, progressive choices, and we hope that through the exposure Lea receives from this campaign, we’ll be that much closer to acceptance on a larger scale.

Brinkley Girls Use Redken

We all know MAC was responsible for the Christie Brinkley-inspired beauties at Chloe’s Fall 2010 show, but it was Redken that can claim responsibility for their shiny, voluminous 70’s blow outs. Guido Palau, considered one of the world’s most inventive, conceptual hair stylists, went for a throwback to the rich, beautiful women of the 70’s—the kind “you’d be envious of.” Getting the perfect blowout is no small feat, but getting a blowout to last is comparable to getting a cat to fetch. Guido’s method is perfected with the right product: Redken’s Velvet Gelatine 07 Cushioning Blow-Dry Gel.

Before he blasted models’ coifs with a bunch of hot air, Guido coated damp hair with the Redken miracle product. He wrapped different sections of hair around a round brush while blow-drying, pulling the hair at the roots. He pinned the sections to let the roots cool with the added lift, and finger-combed the ends with Redken’s Polishing Milk. The healthy, shiny ‘do is reminiscent of Brinkley’s turn as a Breck Girl.

Daddy Dearest: Father’s Day Gift Ideas

With Father’s Day just around the corner, we think it wise to give some guidance to the procrastinators—you’ll thank us Sunday. Whether your dad spends longer on his hair than you, wants to get rid of that “just-mowed-the-lawn musk,” or goes gaga for gadgets, look no further, because we’ve got you (well, your dad) covered.

With this gift idea from Redken For Men, you can tell the old man his hair is thinning, and give him a way to solve the problem without actually saying anything. It’s called Densify texturizing shampoo, and if that seems like a loaded gift, or if you don’t want to bruise his ego, opt for a styling aid that will give him some super sleek hair. Redken For Men Get Groomed finishing cream does the job. It gives dad that perfectly-primped pompadour he used to sport back in his malt-shoppe days.

If you get dad a new tie every year, this suggestion is for you. Cologne adds a new dimension to your gift-giving capabilities. Giorgio Armani eau de toilettes for men are fresh and classic, especially Acqua Di Gio. This gift doesn’t say “you smell bad,” it says “I love you and didn’t get you a tie.”

Every distinguished man needs an equally distinguished gadget, which is why we’re giving you options. Portero.com is like a high-end eBay, that auctions off watches from top designers like Cartier, Rolex and TAG Heuer. Many of the auctions end before the weekend, so get on it! Keep this in mind for mom too, since they also auction jewelry and fine housewares.
