In true fashion week form, Redken 5th Avenue NYC has aligned itself with Australian fashion as the Official Hair Partner of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2016 for its ninth consecutive year.

Commencing on May 15th at Carriageworks in Sydney, Redken has partnered with leading Australian fashion houses including Bec & Bridge, Dion Lee, Emma Mulholland, Jennifer Kate, Oscar De La Renta and Zhivago for this year’s premiere Resort Collections schedule.

Australia’s most visionary stylists – Richard Kavanagh (Session Stylist Of The Year 2016), John Pulitano (Headcase Hair, NSW), Philip Barwick (Muse Hair, NSW), Dmitri Papas (Papas + Pace, QLD, Australian Hairdresser Of The Year 2015) and Paloma Rose Garcia (Oscar Oscar Paddington, NSW) will be leading the Redken Session Styling team backstage at each show to dictate the most coveted hair trends for the new season.

In a recent collaboration with celebrated designer, Dion Lee, Redken Global Artist Richard Kavanagh created an arresting Hair Look inspired by Lee’s highly anticipated Resort 2017 collection. Adopting Lee’s distinctive utilitarian aesthetic and signature detailing, Kavanagh’s hair directive exuded an athletic, androgynous mood with a subtle nod to the 90s. Watch below:
