“Working with natural texture, we refined curl shape with a small curling iron or by twisting around a finger to enhance the definition of the curl,” says Rodney Cutler, Ratner Artistic Director.

“This disconnected bob shape incorporates short bangs in connection with internal layering, creating excessive texture,” says Rodney Cutler, Ratner Artistic Director. “We styled to create a new perspective— sort of a quirky doll-like look by juxtaposing the curls with straight bangs.” Hair: Ratner Artistic Team—Rodney Cutler, Artistic Director; Steve Waldman, Technical Training Director; Sharon So, Artistic Leader;  Photographer: John Harold, Creative Director

This classic arching bob has very slight graduation on top layers of hair. “We reinvented this classic shape through styling to give a ’30s- to ’40s-inspired look,” says Rodney Cutler, Ratner Artistic Director. “Using 3/4-inch iron, we over-directed hair to create flatness at the part line, then brushing out curls.” Hair: Ratner Artistic Team—Rodney Cutler, Artistic Director; Steve Waldman, Technical Training Director; Sharon So, Artistic Leader;  Photographer: John Harold, Creative Director

“It’s all about the color,” says Rodney Cutler, Ratner Artistic Director. “Whether pastel pinks or vibrant red, this season calls for making a bold color statement.” Hair: Ratner Artistic Team—Rodney Cutler, Artistic Director; Steve Waldman, Technical Training Director; Sharon So, Artistic Leader;  Photographer: John Harold, Creative Director

The Ratner brands—Hair Cuttery, Bubbles...The Color Salon and Salon Cielo—each bring a different aesthetic to hair design, yet the common thread is creating beautiful, on-trend hair for guests. For the first time, the brands under the Ratner umbrella have one spring/summer collection that combines all the unique elements of each to inspire salon professionals and salon guests.

The Rhyme and Reason collection showcases cuts, coloring and styling in a fun, inspiring and uncomplicated way. The inspiration for the collection stems from the desire to explore new trends in fashion, style and hair design. Each look starts with the same foundational approach and next-level learning techniques, which allow individual personality and style to shine through. Similar to the Ratner brands themselves, the collection is about synergy—how each individual look connects and complements the next.
