Color Perfection Redken Art of Consultation

art of consultation,redken,hair color,hair color perfectionAre you a new hair stylist just starting out in the world of color? Or do you own a salon and are trying to figure out how to assure that your stylists are providing the best color option for your clients? Redken has just launched the new Art of Consultation, a step by step guide on how to step your color clients and the stylists through choosing the correct color.

Choosing the right color for your client’s hair can either enhance their facial features or squash those features. There is an art to obtaining the information you need from the client to help allow you to make the right decisions. Redken has shared there art to Color Perfection:

1) The Color: Do you have cool skin tone or warm skin tone? What is your client’s existing hair color? Redken has a very easy to use color skin tone palette that will help you determine whether your client is a cool or warm. There are also hair color swatches so that you can determine your clients existing hair color. This will allow you to better determine the right color spectrum.

3) The Hair Type: What is your clients hair type? Is it dry, oily, thick, fine, coarse, thin, or chemically over processed? These questions will allow you to determine what additional pre and post processes to perform on the client so that you will give your client optimal results.

2) The Application: Where should the highlights be applied? Honestly I never really thought about this step but this is as important a decision as any others. Redken has created a guide Haircolor Placement & Design guide that allows you to determine your clients face shape. Once the face shape is determined the chart will tell you the optimal location for the highlights, color, and cut. That is a ton of information.

3) The Grey: Do you have Grey? The percentage of grayness in your clients hair will determine what type of color treatment you will use. Redken has provided a swatch of grayness percentages so that you can compare your clients hair.

4) Your Lifestyle: What is your Lifestyle? Do you work? Are you at home? What type of look are you trying to portray? How often do you get colored? How much time do you dedicate to your hair? Do you have any special events coming up in the future? These questions will help you determine the best type of color and level of color that your client should receive. Redken’s Art of Consultation Kit includes a Customized Client Profiler so that these questions can be asked and recorded easily and quickly.

I think whether you are a hair stylist or not Redken’s Art of Consultation kit will help you better determine the perfect color.

Get the look: Marion Cotillard

Actress Marion Cotillard attended the premiere of her new film “Little White Lies” at the Toronto Film Festival wearing a chic black Lefranc Ferrant dress with Dior shoes, and hair styled by Robert Vetica.

I loved her hair: It had a fresh, Holly Golightly mood with a strong side-part swept back, and hair tied in a ponytail at the crown.

How Robert Vetica Created The Look:
“I first gave Marion a new haircut with bangs to reshaped her hair and make the bangs prominent. I then blow dried her hair using argan-oil infused Moroccanoil Treatment to give smooth shine and protect it from the heat of the dryer.”
After making a low, side part, Robert blow dried her hair from the part to the side, and did a bit of backcombing to add some fullness at the crown before spraying Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray to help the teased hair stay in place.

“I then re-wet her bangs and restyled them, adding just a bit of Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream to give her hair a touch of weight and hold them in place. Next, I swooped up the hair into a high ponytail placed just below her crown. Finally, I wrapped the base of the ponytail with her own hair to cover the elastic. This gave the ponytail more swing, thanks to its greater width!”

Rejuvenol Brazilian Keratin Treatment with Collagen

What is Rejuvenol Brazilian Keratin Treatment and does it work? Yes yes yes! Rejuvenol is a brazilian keratin based temporary straightening treatment that will keep your locks sleek and shiny for up to 5 months. It is very similar to the Keratin Complex by Coppola and the Global Keratin with Juvexin. The big difference? Rejuvenol has many more straightening options for the stylist or the at home professional. Rejuvenol has an original formula but also has a formaldehyde free version, a 1 hr treatment, and a 24 hr treatment. What is a 1 hr treatment? You only have to keep it in your hair for 1 hr and then you can rinse it out. Yay! Much better than the 72 hours you have to wait for Keratin Complex and Global Keratin. That is definitely revolutionary.
