Redken Fashion Work 12 Hairspray

As a runway stylist, Cutler loves having products in his bag that can do it all—which is why he loves Redken Fashion Work 12 Hairspray.

“It’s flexible and lightweight with just enough hold. I can use it to finish a blow-dry or to construct the perfect ponytail. It adds texture, I can run my hands through it...For me, it’s that go-to product that works on the runway and also in the salons.”

Styling tip: Applying hairspray directly to your ends can weigh your strands down. That’s why Cutler recommends flipping your head upside down and applying the hairspray evenly from your roots to ends.

Redken Wax Blast 10 High Impact Finishing Hair Wax-Spray

If you’re looking to hit the reset button on second-day hair, Cutler loves Redken Wax Blast 10 High Impact Finishing Hair Wax-Spray. This medium-control wax aerosol hair spray provides texture and gives hair a tousled look with body and dimension.

“When I look for that second-day hair, I don’t want it to be too greasy, but I also want it to have some texture to it...this product gives you that lived-in look,” Cutler says.

Redken Guts 10 Root-Volumizing Hairspray

Hair mousse has been around for years, but according to Cutler, Redken Guts 10 Root-Volumizing Hairspray should replace your favorite formula. This root-volumizing spray foam boosts hair with flexible fullness.

“What I like about Guts 10 Root-Volumizing Hairspray is that it gives support without being too sticky, but when you blow through the hair with your round brush and your blow dryer, it creates this lightness...It gives you that blow-dry that lasts from morning until night,” Cutler says.

Redken Brews Thickening Pomade

Contrary to popular belief, hair pomade isn’t just for men. Whether you have short or long hair, Cutler recommends Redken Brews Thickening Pomade if you’re looking to achieve a wet look with tons of shine.

“I sort of feel like we live in two categories where hair pomade is either a very greasy, shiny product or that matte dry clay finish...This product is kind of an in-between,” Cutler explains. “It’s not too greasy, it’s got a little bit of shine, and it gives you real support. It also allows you to have separation and hold.”

Redken Extreme Play Safe Heat Protection And Damage Repair Hair Treatment

According to Cutler, great hair begins with preparation. If you’re big on heat styling, he recommends prepping your strands with Redken Extreme Play Safe Heat Protection and Damage Repair Hair Treatment. Formulated with plant protein and tourmaline, this innovative hair treatment reduces damage caused by hot tools, strengthens the hair fiber to reduce breakage, and protects hair from heat up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

“This product is setting up the hair to be blow-dried and flat ironed. Those tools aren’t going away so the more repairing benefits you can get in your styling routine, the better off you are,” Cutler explains.”

Redken Triple Pure 32 Neutral Fragrance Hairspray

If you’re looking for a trustworthy hairspray (without the crunch and stickiness), Cutler loves Redken Triple Pure 32 Neutral Fragrance Hairspray. Offering maximum control with minimal scent, this hairspray is perfect for everyday use to lock in styles and control unwanted frizz.

“When we think about strong hold hairspray, that’s great, but if they’re sticky they’re not going to work. So it’s important to get the hold but with a very fine dryness,” Cutler explains.

“The Redken Triple Pure 32 Neutral Fragrance Hairspray is very light even though it’s high hold...It allows you to have a light distribution, it’s fragrance neutral and not flaky.”

Redken Rough Paste 12 Working Material Medium Control Hair Paste

Working with curly hair? Cutler swears by a combination of Redken Rough Paste 12 Working Material Medium Control Hair Paste and Redken Outshine 01 Anti-Frizz Polishing Milk.

“What I’ll do is use a nice blend of both products. If you’ve got curly hair, it’s fool-proof,” Cutler says. “It gives moisture, helps define curls, and the combination gives hair the support it needs”
