Are You Ready for Radiant Reds?

Blondes Don’t Have All the Fun!

Introducing Redken’s new Carmin’R dye!

We are all about deep, dimensional, vibrant reds. Whether you want permanent or demi permanent, all over color, highlights, balayage or ombre, we have something to suit you.

How it Works:

This revolutionary dye molecule penetrates the hair core then expands, trapping it inside the strand. This creates color that is truer to tone and lasts up to 40 shampoos!

Proper Aftercare Makes a Difference:

After you dye your hair it is very important that you take the time to properly care for it. After the color service, ask your stylist about a Redken Chemistry Treatment. This treatment will lock and seal the color in, as well as deep condition your hair.

Nothing will fade your color faster than a low quality shampoo. I recommend Redken’s Color Extend Magnetics line. It’s sulfate free and designed for color treated hair.

Lastly, a couple of tips for keeping your color radiant: shampoo less frequently and always cover your hair when in the sun. Shampooing too often will not only fade your color with a quickness, but it will also leave it feeling dry and lose it’s luster. The sun’s harsh UV rays will also contribute to color fading. So this summer be sure to wear a hat or scarf to protect your color investment!

Calling All Blondes!

Exciting Things Are Happening!

With 2015 in full swing there are so many new and exciting things happening at Rio!

We officially have Redken’s brand-spankin’-new Blonde Idol color line. The line includes high-lift conditioning hair color, a blue oil lightening system and the base breakers. What this means for you is lighter, brighter blondes without the brassiness and without the damage! Each product in this line is ultra conditioning so your hair is not left dry and lifeless but bright, lustrous and healthy.

“Sombre”, balayage, high lights and all over blonde will never go out of style.

All over Instagram and Pinterest are pictures of beautifully lightened, perfectly blended blondes. People, especially those of us with naturally darker hair, think it’s impossible to have that hair on their heads. That is, while having hair still attached to their head! This color line makes it possible. Now, don’t get me wrong, if you have jet black hair, don’t think you’ll be a platinum blonde just like that! But you can gradually become lighter and brighter without the dreaded brassy orange monster showing it’s ugly face all over your head.

We have the technology!

Each product in this line includes new technology that include: cationic polymers designed to smooth the hair fibers, violet leaf extract to condition and optimize the health of the hair and ceramides that repair and seal the hair to protect the color.

What this means for you is the beautiful lasting blonde you want without the dryness other methods can cause. Also, with haircolor that lifts and tones at the same time and a base breaker that only takes 10 minutes to process you won’t feel like you’ve spent an eternity in the salon.

Check out these results!!:

NEW! Extreme Length

It’s Finally Here!

Redken’s Extreme Length System is now available in the salon!

I am very excited to announce that we now have Redken’s Extreme Length system in the salon for purchase. It. Is. AMAZING! If you have been trying to grow your hair and feel like it is taking an eternity (like myself) then I urge you to pick it up and try it.

Hair grows 3-6″ in one year. The key to getting the maximum growth of 6″ is by keeping your hair healthy. Extreme Length contains biotin and a protein complex which forms bonds around the hair fibers to strengthen and preserve length. If your hair is growing at the root but breaking off the ends you’re not going to make any progress! Not only does this system make your hair feel fantastic but it reduces the appearance of split ends.

extremelength

Follow these 3 steps:

1. Shampoo with Redken’s Extreme shampoo.

2. Towel dry hair and apply the Extreme Length Primer. Leave on 2-5 minutes  and rinse.

3. Apply the Extreme Length Sealer on your ends. It can be applied to damp or dry hair.

If you’re interested in trying it out first, book an appointment with one of our stylist for an in-salon treatment (service price: $20). Mention this blog post for $5 off!

#RedkenSymposium2015

VegasStrip_lg1

Rio Takes Las Vegas!

This past week seven  of our amazingly talented stylists traveled to the FABULOUS Las Vegas to attend the 2015 Redken Symposium. This is the largest single-manufacturer education event in the world! They left wide-eyed and eager to learn and returned more motivated and inspired than ever!

082

Kris, Laura, Megan, Melissa, Misty, Shelby and myself (Jess) embarked on this adventure last Friday January 23rd. Once we arrived we immediately began exploring this beautiful city. To us there was so much to see and do and so little time!

070The first night we were there truly was a magical night because one of our stylists received the surprise of her life! Our little Meggy GOT ENGAGED! It really was the most romantic thing I have ever witnessed. We are so happy for her and cannot wait to be with her every step of the way!

groupAfter a couple of days of exploring Sunday rolled around and it was time to get to work! We all visited Sam Villa’s Hairshow, an amazing blow dry bar, to get #redkenready for the opening event that night.

101Of course we had the best seats in the house for the show! It was an amazing display of all the educators, artists and models we would be seeing and learning from the following days in class. I must say, when Redken throws a party, they REALLY throw a party! They pulled out all the stops and made it incredible.

The next day classes began and we were given the opportunity to learn from the most innovative, talented and creative artists from around the world!

We also were able to bring back some goodies! We have a sneak peak at some new products Redken will be releasing this year. We are very excited to be ahead of the game with new styling and color products that will take your hair to the next level.

I know I don’t speak for myself when I say I cannot wait for Redken Symposium 2017! This was one of the greatest experiences of my life and now I’m ready to practice what I’ve learned and create some truly incredible hair!
