Thinking silver and gold are only for the holiday décor? Think again! With Redken’s NEW City Beats Collection, let your clients capture the metallic trends with a trip to the salon chair. Redken Artist Sean Godard gives us his insider tips on how to embrace the most festive time of the year with the latest in haircolor trends.
Is your client’s blonde ready to go from summer beach to winter chic? Try Rose Gold! By combining City Beats in City Ballet Pink, Chelsea Coral, and East Village Violet, stylists can achieve a barely-there pink hue that easily accentuates warmer skin tones in the cooler months. Sean’s pro tip: Alternate diagonal slices of each color formula to give client’s hair a metallic dimensional effect.
Yellow Gold is always a classic when it comes to jewelry, and now it’s the perfect way to play into the rainbow hair trend this holiday season. City Beats in Yellow Cab will achieve bright, not brassy, gold hair and this shade is easily adaptable for whatever your client’s desired end result. Sean suggests balayage instead of solid color application for a more subtle effect, and varying the concentration of yellow depending on how light or dark the starting color level is.
Whether your client is already platinum or they’re trying to conceal the grays, Smoky Silver is the answer to embracing the latest metallic hair trends. City Beats in Indigo Skyline (yes, purple!) diluted with Clear will subtly reflect a blue violet hue into the hair for a silver shade that pops. Sean’s pro tip: This color application on existing grays will remove any brassiness – hence why this trend is for clients of all ages!
As with any “top coat” color like City Beats, always make sure to even out your client’s starting color before applying. Pre-lightening hair with pH-Bonder will create an even canvas for color application while preserving hair strength and reducing breakage during a technical service.
With pretty, shiny, and sparkly things all around this time of the year, don’t let your client’s haircolor fall flat! Redken’s NEW City Beats Collection allows you to capture the latest metallic hair trends in low commitment, high conditioning color formulas available to clients only through a salon professional. Have your clients maintain fresh vibrant color at home with Redken Color Extend Magnetics Shampoo and Conditioner.
