Get Grammy hairstyles with Redken's Rodney Cutler

2015 Grammy Awards attendee Keltie Knight was rocking a ponytail.  Iggy Azalea sported a tight set of braids.  Jesie J looked simply elegrant.  Redken Brand Ambassador and Owner of Cutler/Redken Salons in NYC, Rodney Cutler tells how they got those looks, so you can get them too.

Iggy Azalea

Part hair down the center to the nape of the neck, and wind one side into a bun and fasten to keep out of the way.

Start braiding from the nape of the neck and keep working until you reach the top side of your head and you have braided all of the hair that is not in the bun, secure with a clear elastic. Rather than pass sections of hair over the middle strand like with a French braid, pass sections under the middle strand. This will create an "inside out" braid.  Use Redken Braid Aid 03 braid defining lotion, coming to salons in April, to help keep the sections clean and easy to work with. Take hair out of the bun and repeat the same steps on this side.

When you have two long braids, add a touch of Redken Powder Grip 03 mattifying hair powder to the ends and pull edges of the braids gently to make them wider.

Wrap braids on their sides around the top of your head to create your crown and secure to top of the head with long French hair pins or bobby pins matching your hair color.

Jessie J

Apply a nickel-size amount of Redken Satinwear 02 prepping blow-dry lotion throughout hair and blow dry smooth using a paddle brush.

Section by section, apply a dime-size amount Redken Short Sculpt 19 touchable texturizing gel, coming to salons in April, and comb through from roots to ends.

Mist hair with plenty of Redken Control Addict 28 extra high hold hairspray

You can use some long duckbill clips to hold hair in place while it's drying.  Try not to touch until hair is completely dry!

Keltie Knight

Using only your hands, apply Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry express primer to damp hair and blow dry using a round, natural bristle brush.

Once dry, use a generous amount of Redken Wind Blown 05 dry finishing spray from roots to ends to add lots of airy texture.

Pull hair up into a high ponytail (using only your hands, no brush) at the crown of your head.

After securing your pony, gently pull some pieces on top of your hair to create some height and texture.

Using elastics that match your hair color, bind the hair every two inches. After each bind, gently pull hair in each section to create texture and width.
