redken's style connection products - matte sponge 05 rugged texturizer, velvet gelantine 07 cushioned blow-dry gel, and wool shake 08 gel-slush texturizer - play with the overlap between fashion and beauty. for a few months now there been a lot of buzz about mixing the textures from fashion into hair styles, and this line makes that idea tangible.
all of the products have their own charm, but velvet gelatine 07 cushioned blow-dry gel is my latest go-to, designed for a smooth, airy finish. the only catch? it has kind of a masculine smell - maybe sandalwood ?
each product retails for $17 at salon retailers.
