New from Redken is a line of cleansers that truly lives up to it’s name. Redken Genius Wash is a cleansing conditioner that gently cleans your parched or colored locks. There are 3 levels of condition to choose from and all are paraben-free with no sulfates, harsh salts or chemicals. Shampooing your hair frequently can cause frizz and dull color. This system provides a solution for clean hair when you really don’t want to shampoo your hair.
How can a Genius Wash help your hair? In one step you have gentle cleaning plus extra conditioning. Your color will last longer! Incorporating this into your hair cleaning routine increases manageability while pampering your strands for extra bounce and shine. Genius wash has concentrated apricot oils and soy protein formulated for your hair type.
How do you use Genius Wash? Simply alternate washing with traditional shampoo and Genius Wash. If you wash everyday, use Genius Wash for every third wash. If you wash your hair less frequently, use Genius Wash for every other wash. Your hair will thank you. Apply a generous amount (about 10-14 pumps) and distribute evenly through damp hair. Gently massage. Leave in for 2-5 minutes for best results then rinse thoroughly. Talk to your stylist about the best one for your hair needs and instantly become genius!
If you were wondering where Salon Disegno has been for the last two days, you are not alone. We just wrapped our two-day amazing photoshoot led by the talented Noah Hatton. Noah is well known in the fashion business for his ability to style hair in any environment. Georgia’s heat, humidity and wind certainly put his skills to the test. Noah has been assisting, working, and teaching in the hair industry since high school. His work has been featured on multiple magazine covers, fashions spreads, and advertisements. We are so thrilled to have worked with him so closely. After multiple visits to the salon to teach us the ropes, the photoshoot was finally here.
Two days, 15 models, production managers, videographer, multiple wardrobe changes and over 10 locations- we can safely say we worked our tails off. We are so excited to see the final product! Check out some behind the scene shots to tide you over until our final product is finally ready.
Emily Heser, a Redken Stylist, shows us step by step how to create soft waves with volume in this video. Soft waves are all over the red carpet these days, but getting the style on yourself can be kinda tricky. Emily shows us the ropes on her own hair which makes this so relatable!
Here are the tools you need to follow along:
With warmer weather on the way, styles are starting to change. Bye, boots! Hello, sandals! Wardrobe changes isn’t the only thing our salon is noticing. Hair color is lightening up! Longer days, more sun, and the thoughts of vacation are all around us. This is reflected in the haircolor our guests ask for. New soft, blurred and hand-painted hi-lighting techniques that are coming to the fashion fore-front are in high demand! And what is awesome, is because these looks are so soft, lightening the hair is now open to more people. Dark hair? Olive skin? Don’t think blonde would suit you? Scared of maintenance? The clouds have parted, and we all can lighten up our hair! Check out the slide show below for some inspiration and dream light!
This March, Redken launched their new three part lightening system designed for lightening every hair level (that means darkness of hair.) Blonde Idol Color gives your stylist the tools they need to lighten every level from dark brunettes to light blondes. They can provide on-trend platinum, lighten up with rich caramel highlights, anything between balayage to ombre, and more! And because it is from Redken, you know the science is there to protect the hair’s integrity.
Now, Once you have been blessed with your new lightened look, don’t forget to take care! At home hair-care is what is going to make or break the new sunny you. To keep your hair shining, soft and on-tone- Redken Blonde Idol shampoo and custom-tone conditioner is a must.
As a hairstylist, one of the main problems I hear about constantly is frizz. Frizz is not cute. It can ruin a blow out, robs definition from curls, and frizz takes away from a ‘put-together’ look. Wild banshee is not what i was going for… But the people with the hardest struggle is the fine-hair frizz prone! So many products that promise zero-frizz weigh down the hair! And, no! It is not too much to ask for frizz-free, full hair! Redken, our sweet, dear friends, have developed frizz-fighting line for all hair types. Check out the video below.
Here is the break down! Frizz Dismiss features a Sulfate-Free Shampoo that works in tandem with a conditioner to provide smoothness and manageability while protecting hair from humidity for lasting frizz control. If you need a deep conditioning, Frizz Dismiss Mask is an intensive rinse-out treatment that provides humidity protection and smoothing. Where things get customizable for your hair texture and humidity level, is the products! Ever use a dryer sheet to stop static? Why not use something made for hair? Frizz Dismiss FPF 10 Fly-Away Fix finishing sheets for all hair types dismiss static and eliminate fly-aways. Keep some in your purse for emergencies. We love a spray lotion! You get easy, even saturation of the product on the hair, and your hands stay goop-free! Frizz Dismiss FPF 20 Smooth Force lightweight smoothing lotion spray is for fine to medium hair types in low to high humidity. If you’re a fan of leave in oils, Frizz Dismiss Deflate is for you! We love to blend this oil into your everyday styling product for extra frizz protection. Lastly, we have the magic for the thick, coarse hair that resides in Georgia! Curly or straight, this leave in creme has got your back. Frizz Dismiss FPF 40 Rebel Tame leave-in smoothing control cream is for coarse hair types in medium to high humidity. Redken even made this handy chart to help pick which product is best for you!
This entire system is now available at both Salon Disegno locations. We have been loving this line and want to try it on you! Honestly, frizz happens, but with Redken’s new products, we can dismiss that! Bye, Frizz!
If you are like Soo Joo Park, the model for Redken’s newest revamped line, Extreme, you have some long hair dreams that you need to come to life. Depending on how you treat your hair and your diet, the average person’s hair can grow 3-6 inches in a year. If you want to go for the 6 inches and beyond, you are going to need to pamper your hair. Along with Redken’s Extreme Shampoo, using one or both of the two new additions to the Extreme line is going to get you the strongest, healthiest hair you can grow yourself.
Extreme Lengths Primer
The First new Product to introduce is the Extreme Length Prime. This is a treatment to be used after shampooing with Extreme, left in for 5-15 minutes and then rinsed out. Weightless condition that is infused with biotin builds strength from roots to tips, helping you achieve maximum length.
The other half of the new duo is the Extreme lengths Sealer. This innovative product comes ready for business. You can apply this wet or dry hair. Target the most distressed parts of your tresses or apply all over. This formula also utilizes biotin to strengthen hair and add shine. The unique applicator is a soft brush to help you coat all of the ends and seal them to prevent split ends. The best time to start this product is right after a trip to your stylist, so ends are fresh and can stay that way. When it comes to split ends, there is no permanent repair. But, you can prevent the splits and if there are already some gnarly ends, the sealer can stop them from increasing until you can get those ends dusted. We all know growing out that “lob” or pixie seems to take forever, so why not go to the extreme to get the length?
Extreme Lengths Sealer
This new Duo is available now. introductory Duo packs are $39. A great deal while it lasts, the primer alone is $23 and the sealer solo is $25. If 2015 is the year for your long hair, don’t care, snatch the duo pack before we run out!

Redken is throwing us a party! Well, that’s how we see it- But actually Redken Symposium in fabulous Las Vegas is meeting of the industry’s leading educators, stylists and colorists!

New colors and technology are normally unveiled. Last symposium in 2013, we were introduced to the Redken Steam Iron that is now a staple in our salons. So we wait, hold our breath for the next big thing! This blogger is in close touch with our salon attendees and will be posting updates- so be sure to keep an eye out!
Would you describe your hair as thin? Is it hard to maintain volume in your hair? Do you have to wash your hair everyday to add life to your style? If this sounds like yourself or someone you know, New Redken Cerafill can help plump and thicken and even prevent hair loss. This system is the only thinning and thickening line you need. Thin hair can be hereditary or be caused by a toxin called DHT that blocks receptor sites in the hair follicle that normally attract nutrients. These nutrients are food for the hair. Eventually on a un-purified scalp, collagen accumulates around the hair bulb and hardens. This results in suffocation of the bulb that prevents the root from taking a firm, deep hold in the scalp.
New Cerafill includes two easy to navigate systems. Defy for the early signs of thinning or just fine hair. Defy is perfect for people who have been dealing with limp locks from day one AND those of us that have seen the effects of aging. Retaliate is for advanced thinning hair and can be customized based on the stage of hair thinning. Retaliate also is for the receding hair lines and filling in of thinner spots. Your stylist can help you pick the perfect line for your needs. There are two styling texture products proven give you fuller, thicker looking hair immediately. Check out some ‘before and after’s below!
