Blow and Glow

Need to pimp up your cut and blow dry ahead of the party season?  We got you…

From L to R: Wella Professionals No Strings Attached Colour and Blend Salon

Okay people, this is not a drill – party season is upon us, and you need to ensure your hair is on point. We’ve got the inside skinny on two new salon service menus that deliver a blow dry with so much more…

Hit the Gram and you can’t fail to notice the growing obsession with #HealthyHair – that hashtag was up 157 per cent year on year on Instagram. The images with all the likes have something in common, an irresistible, stellar shine delivered by Redken’s Shades EQ. So, it makes sense to boost a blow-dry to make your hair look amazing in your selfies.

Blow Dry With Benefits

There’s truly something for everyone – from root touch-ups and TLC for damaged tresses to a shot of shine or a pop of colour, and even a service for colour-shy clients who want to strengthen hair. “Blow-drys are back but clients want more,” admits Larry King, Redken it-list stylist and founder of Larry King salon. “Glossing, pops of colour and ‘tweakments’ are very in at the moment. A menu that fuses the two is simply genius.”  To find your nearest Redken salon, click here.
