TESTIMONIALS

The Redken Design Authority program allowed me to understand "why” I’m cutting what I’m cutting.  Being able to look at a picture, analyze it and being able to recreate it specifically for each guest.  This program by far exceeded my expectations!! The educators know what they are talking about and they TRULY care about educating stylists to make us the best we can be!
