It would not be a Sex and The City event without a "cocktail" in hand !!! This one is called Glamour Gal - which was sooooo good! The limited edition Patricia Field Skyy Vodka Bottles are tres chic !!!!
Last night Redken created the hair styles while Vincent Longo were the force behind the beauty looks for the launch of Sex and the City 2’s costume designer Patricia Field’s House of Field Eyewear, Swimwear and Beach Towels in NYC.
Hair : Lead by Rodney Cutler for Cutler/Redken
To complement the ultra stylish and super glam looks designed by the queen of costume designing herself along with David Dalrymple, Rodney Cutler for Cutler/Redken pushed the envelope in hair styling as he created the perfect youthful fishtail-ed updo to play on Patricia’s eye for sophisticated fashion: “The high fishtail braid is a fun evening looking and very wearable. We've seen so many buns up top and this is just taking it one step further," explained Cutler. When we asked him how can this look be translated to ready to wear, he said simply " It can be worn as is, without any alterations as long as the woman is edgy enough to pull this look off" - Which we all are!!!!
To create the look, Rodney prepped hair by applying Redken align 12 protective straightening lotion and blow-dryed through with a medium brush. Next, he tightly gathered into a high ponytail on the very top of the head, about three inches from the hair line and secured with an elastic. He then took a small piece of hair and wrapped around the elastic and secured with a bobby pin. Next, a fish-tail braid* was weaved down to the end of the hair and pinned in upon itself right at the hairline. The look was finished with Redken vinyl glam 02 mega shine spray for shine and Redken forceful 23 super strength finishing spray for extra strong hold for a look that undeniably shouted “Hello Lover” on the runway!
