From boho braids, to beach waves, to statement-making rainbow colored locks, the first weekend of Coachella brought out some seriously cool hairstyles. With festival season officially underway, and weekend two of Coachella just around the corner, you'll want to be sure you're ready to give clients their best music festival hair.
Rodney Cutler, Redken Brand Ambassador and owner of Cutler/Redken Salons in NYC, was inspired by three major looks from Coachella: Gigi Hadid’s loose waves, Kate Bosworth’s braided center part, and Kylie Jenner’s turquoise tresses. Below, he shares his expert tips and product picks to recreate these cool looks in just minutes.

Redken Must-Have: fashion waves 07 sea salt spray
Rodney’s Tip: “Mist Redken’s fashion waves 07 all over damp hair, and then let it dry and reapply again for the most beautiful, beachy waves.”
Inspiration: Kate Bosworth
Redken Must-Have: braid 08 braid defining lotion
Rodney’s Tip: “Apply a dime-size amount of Redken’s braid aid 08 into the section of hair you want to braid. It will help define the braid and adds grip so it stays in place all day.”
Inspiration: Kylie Jenner
Redken Must-Have: color rebel hair makeup
Rodney’s Tip: “Redken’s Color Rebel is a quick, easy way to add a pop of color to any style. Apply a thin coating of Color Rebel to hair, comb through, and let dry. Then, apply additional layers of Color Rebel until you get the desired level of brightness.”
Whichever style your client chooses, be sure to send her off with Redken’s Frizz Dismiss FPF 10 Fly-Away Fix finishing sheets and pillow proof blow dry two day extender in her bag so she can touch up her style anytime, anywhere!
