Redken hair artists are always at the forefront of gorgeous hair designs.

To create an ultra stylish and super glam look, celebrity stylist Rodney Cutler – Celebrity Hair Stylist And Founder Of Cutler Salons, for Cutler/Redken, pushed the envelope in hair styling.

He created the perfect youthful fishtail-ed updo for sophisticated fashion.

Cutler said “The high fishtail braid is a fun evening looking and very wearable.  We've seen so many buns up top and this is just taking it one step further."

Braided Top Knot - How To

To create the fabulous look, Rodney prepped hair by applying Redken align 12 protective straightening lotion and blow-dryed through with a medium brush.

Next, he tightly gathered into a high ponytail on the very top of the head, about three inches from the hair line and secured with an elastic.

He then took a small piece of hair, wrapped it around the elastic and secured with a bobby pin.

Next, a fish-tail braid* was woven down to the end of the hair.  The braid was then pinned in upon itself right at the hairline.

The look was finished with Redken vinyl glam 02 mega shine spray for shine and Redken forceful 23 super strength finishing spray for extra strong hold for a look that undeniably shouted “Hello Lover” on the runway!
