RIO Hair Studio had the great pleasure of hosting Redken’s Education Artistic Director, Chris Baran!
Chris Baran taught our hair stylists so many amazing things! From tips and tricks about how to better brush, part, cut and curl to improving out technique, Chris gave us new skills to make us all better stylists. Every single person in the room learned something new in class that we could use as soon as our clients took a seat in the chair.
By making us take a look at the bigger picture, the first part of class was about how we could achieve our goals. Chris made us examine who we are as hair stylists, who we want to become and how to make that happen.
We always think of RIO as a family and learning together cemented that. Chris made sure this was a hands-on, interactive experience for everyone. Throughout class we were bouncing ideas off each other, explaining and re-explaining new techniques to each other as well as cheering each other on.
It was so important for RIO Hair Studio to host this class. We believe that one of the major factors for the studio’s success is owner Misty’s emphasis on continuing education for each and every stylist. This focus on professionalism ensures that each stylist is well-trained, well-certified, and always up to date on the latest styles, procedures and processes. This is how we are equipped to provide the best service to clients – we can assure each client will receive the best advice about precision cuts, the most useful products, and the appropriate treatments and techniques for their hair to keep it healthy and strong.
We cannot thank Chris enough for sharing his wisdom, skills and humor with us!

Still Shots from Hair by Misty
Long, wavy hair is always a great summer look and has been very popular so far this year. By adding highlights, we can add even more dimension and style to your haircut.
Go for a lot of contrast or sombre for a more natural sun kissed look.
