Trendsetters/A-List Men and the Movies Redken Brand Ambassador Rodney Cutler discusses how past film influences are shaping today’s male looks. W hen Launchpad’s Alyson Osterman-Kerr asked Redken Brand Ambassador Rodney Cutler to identify current celeb men’s hair trends, he immediately looked to movies that have shaped our cultural canon. “A lot of trends I’m seeing today in terms of male celebrities—and the salon client—is a direct reflection of iconic film styles,” Cutler says. “Looks that were big in the past are currently being modernized in interesting ways. It’s fascinating to see how past styles are shaping our present incarnations.” The ’90s are a big influence with this look. Men want to keep the sides short and the top longer. This style is great for active men who need a low-maintenance regimen. Even though this is a sporty look, there’s still strength behind the style. LOOK: Rockabilly—disheveled, not as tailored FILM INSPIRATION: Rebel Without a Cause CELEB: James Franco Think late ’50s, when times were simpler and rebellious attitudes were surfacing. The current take on the rockabilly style is less sculpted and more carefree— more grown-out, not as contrived. 76 | BEAUTY LAUNCHPAD | AUGUST 2013 LOOK: Classic FILM INSPIRATION: The Rum Diary CELEB: David Beckham Inspired from classic barbering techniques, this tried-and-true style always looks sophisticated. Hair is folded into place; strands should be controlled, but the style can’t be too stiff—he still wants to be able to run his fingers through it! LOOK: Urban Gentleman FILM INSPIRATION: The Great Gatsby CELEB: Henry Cavill Taken from an era when men wore suits for business and leisure, the urban gentleman gets redefined with a modern take. This look is timeless; it’s as stylish now as it would have been in any time period. INGLORIOUS BASTERDS: FRANCOIS DUHAMEL/TWC2009; MACKLEMORE: TIM MOSENFELDER/GETTY IMAGES ENTERTAINMENT; REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE: ARCHIVE PHOTOS/MOVIEPIX; JAMES: VENTURELLI/WIREIMAGE; JOHNNY: GV CRUZ/WIREIMAGE; DAVID: CHINAFOTOPRESS; GATSBY: COURTESY OF WARNER BROS. PICTURES; HENRY: CARLOS ALVAREZ/GETTY IMAGES ENTERTAINMENT LOOK: The Taper/“Philly” Fade FILM INSPIRATION: Inglourious Basterds CELEB: Macklemore Rodney Cutler’s introduction to the pro-beauty world? “I walked into a hair salon and fell in love with the energy and the smells—the entire atmosphere was electric,” he shares. “Then, of course, I had to figure out how to do hair!”
