"I love the freedom to create, the endless possibilities astound me, and the daily adventure of knowing that I will never know everything and can always learn something new."
My list of credits include many commercials, movies, covers of magazines, editorial photo shoots. Each one has been a milestone and something I have been excited to see in print or flashed across the TV screen.
My list of clients is extensive and I am fortunate that I get to do many celebrities having built a great foundation over 20 years in Los Angeles. There are people that I have done and then there are the loyal clients who have stuck with me over all the years , they would be Jamie lee Curtis, Jamie Pressley , Eugene Levy, Christopher Guest , famed singers Leonard Cohen Martha and Rufus Wainwright, Teddy Thompson, Sissy SpaceK , Weird Al, Maria Bello And Many More.
What are your 3 favorite René Furterer products? Why?
Vegetal finishing spray, it has an amazing flexible hold and a fantastic scent.
The next would be the NATURIA dry shampoo. Working with models and doing fashion shows, quite often there is no place to shampoo the hair, this can be a real life saver.
And my third favorite would be the vegetal mousse. Its setting capabilities are amazing, its brushable pliability is unmatched, and it has a fantastic nutritious element that gives great luster.

To prep hair for styling, work VOLUMEA volumizing foam through the hair and quickly blow-dry to smooth out any frizziness.
Next, part hair on the side to create a sophisticated line.
Starting at the crown divide hair into three-inch-wide sections and, one by one, spray each section with the vegetal finishing spray and curl hair using a one-inch curling iron, securing each curl with a pin-curl clip. Curl hair in the front, around the part, last, starting on the left side of the part. Take sections in sort of a pie shape, in an arc around the part.
Once all sections cool, remove clips and brush through. Spritz hair with glossing spray for extra shine. Finish the look by spraying hair with vegetal finishing spray for long-lasting hold.
