Shag bob gives model an edgy look
âDoesnât matter,â said Rodney Cutler after meeting new model Kate, who had just signed with BMG in New York. âWe just need ONE girl and Kate is perfect!â
Cutler, a celeb stylist, salon owner, Redken Brand Ambassador and creator of âRunway Your Wayâ for Ulta salons, believed he could make a big difference for Kate, who is in the process of building her portfolio. While she arrived looking âOKâ according to Cutler, he could see the real potential and knew that a striking hair cut would amplify her opportunities in the very competitive modeling world.
âShe has an all-American look, but I wanted to give her an edgy look,â says Cutler. âMy goal was to give her something that popsâsomething striking, more rock and rollâsomething strong. I wanted to avoid goth, but still be edgy and pretty. It can be extreme or simple, but must be something. The take away is that it has to be a beautiful image.â
To get the âwowâ factor, Cutler and team, including senior colorist Dallace, created a slightly asymmetrical âshag-bob,â added micro-lights and then coated it with shocking blue âto make it pop more and shine,â says Dallace. âBlack alone is too flat.â
âMost importantly,â says Cutler, âis that Kate looked at it and said âwowâ when she saw her finished look. It is effortless and wearable and has made the client happy.â
