This year, the timing of Fashion Week has shifted to put it into the international resort sphere, with the collections showcasing these high-calibre summer designs.


Redken will congregate a legendary group of stylists, including this year’s Australian Hair Fashion Awards Session Stylist of the Year Richard Kavanagh, John Pulitano of Headcase Hair, 2015 Hair Expo Hairdresser of the Year Dmitri Papas of Papas + Pace and Paloma Rose Garcia of Oscar Oscar Paddington to head the session styling team. These famous names will act as Redken Hair Directors to ensure the looks come to life. These stylists bring their experience from some of the world’s biggest runways (think Paris, Milan, New York and London) to Sydney next week.

The brand will also launch the Redken eShop on May 15, allowing hairdressers and runway aficionados access to essential backstage haircare and styling collections, ensuring you can create the looks at home and in salon.
