FASHION WEEK: Frank Rizzieri for RSession at Milly

Maggie Mulhern | February 15, 2013 | 10:51 AM

Although it was 20 minutes before show time for the Milly fall/winter 2013 collection at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, lead hairdesigners Kevin Ryan and Frank Rizzieri were taking everything in stride. Most models were done and Frank offered to break down the look for Modern.

"I know it's a ponytail," he admitted, "but it's a 'special' ponytail. And these are not always as easy as you would think...especially when there has to be uniformity. There has to be a plan when all the models have to have the same look."

According to Frank, it's all about the texture. After running Aveda Phemollient through the hair and hand drying, Frank adds Pure Abundance powder. "You really need the grip," he says.

For Frank it's all about the products...and especially the tools, used to create looks. After demo-ing how he uses medical forcepts to create editorial finishes, frank walked us through the latest RSession Pro Tools designed by Kevin and Frank specifically to create unusual and interesting textures and finishes. The tools are exceptional.

As long as Frank was giving us so much time, we decided to dive in to the book that will be found in the kits for most Aveda students. "We show how to do the most mainstream of looks that can make or break a stylist. We break down blowing out curly hair, creating an editorial finish, and yes...making a perfect ponytail."

Everything You Need to Know About the Goldwell Color Zoom Competition

Alison Alhamed | October 1, 2017

Color Zoom 101: Every year, Goldwell releases a trend collection that is used as the inspiration for its annual haircolor and style competition, Color Zoom. Across the globe, Color Zoom starts on a national level. Beauty pros compete in three categories— Creative Colorist, New Talent Colorist, Partner Colorist—by submitting a photo of their interpretation of the trend. Once the Gold winners of each category are determined on a national level, they go on to compete internationally on behalf of their respective countries during a live recreation of the look on their model—including the hair color—in front of a judging panel and audience. The international leg of the competition takes place in a new city each year.
