Maintain Your Blonde Hair ala Redken

Blonde hair has special needs.  Redken’s David Stanko (my colorist!) shows how all you blondies out there can treat and maintain your natural or color-treated blonde hair.  Added bonus – Redken’s Rodney Cutler creates glamorous waves with the twist and dry technique.  I love it!  You can also accentuate the curls with your curling iron!  Think sexy big waves.

Hair Color Perfection by Redken and David Stanko

Everybody knows my choice for hair colorist is New York based Redken Colorist Expert, David Stanko.  David puts the glam in my hair using the incredible Redken Collection of hair color.  I just visited David last week and of course he created nothing but perfection with the new Blonde Glam Collection hair color by Redken.

David in partnership with Redken just launched a new video which I love! He does a makeover for Beauty Editor of Latina Magazine, Angelique Serrano, turning her dark locks into summer glam.

Get That Perfect Blond by Redken

Great news!  Finally there is way for you non-natural blondes (and I know most of you are not natural) out there to keep your blond color longer.  I don’t know if I have ever mentioned my two favorite celebrity colorists Tracey Cunnigham and David Stanko.  I met up with them in New York to discuss hair color and how to maintain a beautiful blond.  

David mentioned that Redken has just launched a fantastic line of in-salon and at home products that help you keep your blond longer and actually keep it blond versus that pesky bluish blond or organgey blond!  The collection is by my fav hair care maker Redken and it is called the Blond Glam collection.

The Blond Glam collection is a collection of hair color, lighteners, and hair care products that give you a fab blond color that shimmers and helps you to maintain that color.  You get an amazing multi-tone blond color that looks beautiful and is extremely conditioned.  I know you will love it!  Go to your Redken salon or at www.redken.com to learn more.  It’s launching in the Spring of 2009.

Celebrity HairStylist: David Stanko

david stanko celebrity hair stylist and coloristA few weeks ago I met an incredible colorist and stylist that I have to rave about, David Stanko.  He is cool, hip, suave, and overall a complete charmer!   David Stanko’s first salon job was in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, at age 18, cleaning hairbrushes and mixing color. Way humble beginnings for this celebrity colorist.  Recently, Stanko spearheaded the testing and technical execution of Redken’s haircolor and lightener brands. Today, as Haircolor Consultant for Redken 5th Avenue NYC and a working salon colorist in New York City, David has the unique opportunity to exercise his wide range of gifts and that he does. 

I walked into the Angelo David Salon in New York City, steps from Grand Central Station.  David greeted me in the hallway with complete charm overload.  I had a divine cup of coffee and I was on my way to highlight heaven.  He performed three incredible treatments on my hair; sparse highlights near the bangs just to lighten up my very dark brown hair, Redken’s Shades EQ clear gloss (which I will elaborate more in another post) to create a lustrous shine, and Redken’s Real Control treatment to soften the hair (see more on Redken Real Control). 

Can I just say wow!  Within in seconds David analyzed my hair, asked me a few lifestyle questions, and devised a highlight course of action.  I can’t say enough about him!  The results were incredible.  The lustrous shine and dazzling sparkle was amazing.  Clearly he knows what he is doing. David’s haircolor work has been styled by such talents as Serge Normant, Oribe and Orlando Pita. He has also been featured in the pages of top fashion publications, including Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, In-Style, Latina and Elle, not to mention nearly every North American trade magazine American Salon, Modern Salon, Launchpad, Estetica and Hair Color & Design Magazine.
