Celebrity and runway stylist Rodney Cutler (far right) speaks to a small group of us his new Modern Classic collection at Salon Ulta

An opportunity like this doesn't come around every day! Redken expert and celebrity runway stylist Rodney Cutler will be making a rare Chicago appearance today at the Salon at Ulta, the top floor of the three-story Ulta beauty supply store on State Street. The suave stylist is in town to introduce the second haircut collection in his spring and fall collection launch, the Modern Classic collection. Inspired by celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Hudson and Rihanna, the three cuts in the Modern Classic collection project the elegance of red carpet glam, yet are versatile enough for any modern and stylish woman. They are:

Classic:  A sleek bob that is simple yet striking and can be worn with or without bangs. Cutler's muses for this look were Charlize Theron and Gwyneth Paltrow

A soft spray of layers, fanned out to frame the face in a romantic yet playful way. Cutler's muses for this look were Hilary Swank and
Jennifer Hudson.

A free-spirited crop cut that can go from soft and sexy to fun
and edgy. Cutler's muses for this look were Ellen Degeneres and Rihanna.

The foundation of each Modern Classic cut was the idea of an current, on trend look that could be molded to anyone's lifestyle. Though the cuts may appear daunting at first, Rodney assured us they were all easily customizable and could be tailored to fit the unique tastes of any individual.

I had the distinct privilege of meeting with Rodney last night amidst
the 80+ degree heat and humidity and can I just say, he couldn't have
rescued me too soon!
My frizzy, humidity-wrecked hair was in dire need of a sleek blowout and luckily, the talented artists at Ulta were on hand to help. As they prepped me for my blowout I had the chance to speak with Rodney personally. He explained that whenever he launches a new collection he makes sure to have examples of the various looks for his clients to consult, or he encourages his clients to bring in pictures of their own. This way they can see what they like in the cut—be it the edges, the layers or the length—and then they can work together to create a version that will work perfectly for that person.

Before my blowout, weather-beaten and frizz-attacked!

Afterward (though the light is not great): tousled, loose waves ready for a night on the town!

As a testament of his willingness to find everyone's perfect look, Rodney is offering his own personal expertise in a Modern Classic cut or haircolor for every guest who stops by the Salon at Ulta from 11-6 p.m. TODAY!! So take a long lunch, leave early or do whatever you have to do to skip on over to the Ulta on State Steet for an exclusive Rodney Cutler consultation and a cut or color from his new Modern Classic collection. Call (312) 279-5081 to reserve a space this afternoon!
