Redken launches Blonde Idol Professional Haircolor Collection

For light-and dark-haired clients alike, lightening trends continue to manifest themselves in all of today’s top haircolor trends. With blonde services accounting for nearly 50% of all salon color services, the need for a custom range of lightening products has never been greater. Revolutionizing what it means to be blonde, the launch of Redken’s Blonde Idol Professional Haircolor Collection allows clients to achieve customized lightened shades of up to 7 levels, no matter their natural shade.

"We continue to see Hollywood trends defy the common misconception that highlights are just for blondes. In reality, highlights are flattering on all clients whether they are a platinum blonde or a dark brunette,” says Tracey Cunningham, Redken Celebrity Colorist. “The new Blonde Idol Professional Haircolor Collection is one of the most consistent and easy to apply color formulas I have ever worked with. It allows for so much versatility and customization on all looks, from balayage to babylights to ombre to all-over color!”

The Blonde Idol Professional Haircolor Collection features three products including eight new Blonde Idol High Lift shades to provide multiple lifting speeds and power, no matter the existing hair type or color. The launch also includes a Blonde Idol Applicator Bottle and the first-ever Redken Blonde Idol Balayage Paddle, creating a more stable surface for even and natural looking results.4.png
