Cutler’s take on seasonal hair care


In the winter, it is exceptionally important to add moisture to the scalp and hair. My go-to product is Redken’s Diamond Oil. Dry air and static can create bristle and frizzy hair. It’s important to treat hair with moisture and protein-rich products such as Redken’s Extreme Line. We also have a tendency to be slave to the blow dryer in the winter so make sure use products that protect hair from heat damage.

His predictions for next year

New trend: Michelle Williams in the latest Louis Vuitton campaign is spectacular and creating phenomenal buzz. Her grown out pixie with deep roots and bright blonde creates great dimension.

New take on an old trend: While ombre is not going away, it is definitely shifting into a softer, prettier version. It’s more about blending to have gradual, more natural looking color as opposed to high contrast.

Easy reader tips

Style to try: A loose wave curling iron set. Wrap hair flat (not twisted) around a 1 inch barrel without clamping and create deep side part to add some drama.

Hair color: A great way to introduce new color is hair painting. It’s a great way to bring some lightness and color around the frame of your face without fully committing to a new color. It’s also very low-maintenance in terms of upkeep. To find the best color that suits your skin tone and brings out your eyes, consult with a colorist or makeup artist to determine if you should go for warm or cool tones.
