On the Cover NewYork Minute While styling models’ hair for the spring 2013 Carlos Miele show at New York Fashion Week, Rodney Cutler achieves timeless chic—in record time. T o say that Australian-born Rodney Cutler is a man of many talents is sheer understatement. He’s climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro and runs marathons. He’s a writer for Esquire. He owns three highly successful salons in NYC. He’s an educator, Redken spokesperson and TV personality. And, he’s a runway stylist, creating head-turning looks for such designers as 3.1 Phillip Lim, Badgley Mischka, Betsey Johnson, Tory Burch and Nicole Miller. We caught up with him at the Carlos Miele spring 2013 show, and here’s what he had to say. What is the inspiration behind the Carlos Miele hairstyle? The collection features beautiful animal prints, so I want to keep it chic and simple, but strong with a center part. The sleek, beautiful, shiny hair plays well with the dresses and adds a nice simplicity to the look. What look are you going for, and how will you achieve it? Effortless and sophisticated chic. I’m layering Redken Iron Silk 07 throughout sections of the hair and blowing it straight until the hair’s completely dry. I’m then taking a flat iron and smoothing small sections. Afterward, I’m spraying Redken Fashion Work 12 to keep the hair sleek and straight. After a few minutes, when the hair settles, I use Redken Shine Flash 02 to add sheen to the finished look. What is it like working on the show? Carlos is always a pleasure to work with. He keeps the backstage environment calm, but his attention to detail is always impeccable. RODNEY’S FAVORITE RUNWAY MOMENT: “My favorite moment is when the final model leaves backstage and walks out on the runway for the finale, and the designer flashes a big smile—then you know you’ve done your job.” 36 | BEAUTY LAUNCHPAD | MARCH 2013 GUSTAVO CABALLERO/GETTY IMAGES Any backstage challenges? The only challenge is the timing with the models, as they are always racing in from other shows. Keeping the looks consistent from first look to last look is a challenge as well. But we remain calm and I have a wonderful team, so we always manage to get all of the models done in time.
