I have been using Redken products for 5 years, do I have to attend the Redken Specialist program and Redken Finishing Authority program first?
The Redken Finishing Certification is an advanced level exam that assesses your technical skills, knowledge of Redken products and principles, and your approach to creating specific outcomes. The Redken Specialist and Redken Finishing Authority are meant to be building blocks to Redken Finishing Certification; preparing and giving you more knowledge about finishing.
Do I need to attend Redken Finishing Authority before I take Redken Finishing Certification? Yes. The Redken Finishing Authority program provides you with the tools for success in passing your Redken Finishing Certification exam.
Will I receive any materials in the mail prior to the program?
Yes. Once paid in full, you will receive a study kit in the mail that will provide you the necessary materials needed to study for the Redken Finishing Certification exam.
If I fail the Redken Finishing Certification exam, do I have to retake the whole exam?
You do not need to retake the whole exam. You have 1 year to retake the specific portion of the exam you failed. At a fee, coaching calls are available to focus on the expectation of each portion of the exam. (Not specific to your exam results)
How far in advance should I register and study for Finishing Certification?
We recommend you allow yourself ample time to study and prepare for the exam. Registration closes 30 days prior to the exam date.
If I cancel my registration, can I receive a refund?
No. Tuition is non-refundable. However, if you need to cancel from Redken Finishing Certification, you have up to one year to apply the funds to another Redken Finishing Certification. Or, you can designate someone else to attend your original session in your place.
