Hair Challenge: She wants a bold new look to go along with her new life in NYC and passion for music

Budding performer Kelly has always had a passion for singing. After living in China and Japan for 6 years following college, she recently moved back to NYC to pursue her dreams.

 “Singing and music is something that I’ve kept on the back burner for a really long time. Being back in New York, now is my chance to do something with it!”

After taking a break from haircolor for a few years, Kelly was looking for a showstopping new look to match her exciting new life in NYC and foray into the world of performing.

 “I’ve never done my hair professionally, color-wise. I’m now starting to do a lot more performances and auditions, and I would love my hair to show that performer side of me, yet still be reflective of who I really am.”


To give Kelly the touch of drama she was looking for, Redken Artist Kyle Pinneo turned to Redken’s New Color Gels Lacquers shades, which feature advanced technology for ultra-vibrant, longer-lasting red tones. Kyle completed Kelly’s transformation with Redken’s Shades EQ hair gloss for a truly dazzling end result.

 “Today, we’re going to turn it up a notch, and give her a little more of that va-va-voom. We’ll bring out those bright, rich tones along with amazing shine. It’s all about showing that wild side, without taking it too far.”

Kelly’s radiant red haircolor transformation is giving us major #hairinspo. To watch the full episode, be sure to check out Redken’s YouTube channel!
