How Attending Redken Symposium Can Boost Your Career

This year’s first Redken Symposium convention (March 19-20, 2023) was a show stopper! The event brought together some of the industry’s top hairstylists who shared their knowledge, experience, and techniques to help other stylists improve their skills and elevate their work. As a hairstylist, it’s essential to stay on top of current trends, be knowledgeable about the history of hairstyling, and surround yourself with the right people. Join us as we dive into these takeaways and explore how you can use them to grow your career.

1) Surrounding yourself with the right people can change your mindset quickly.

One of the top takeaways from the convention was that it’s important to be surrounded by the right people.
You can easily change your mindset and transform your approach with just one decision. Being in the presence
of like-minded individuals like speaker, Jamie Sea (love her story) can help you get inspired and motivated to
reach your goals.

2) Learn from the best.

The convention showcased some of the industry’s top hairstylists such as Adrienne Dara, Phillip Foresto, Sean Godard, Leysa Carrillo, Sam VIlla, Tracey Cunningham, Lindsey Olson, Braden Pelltier and more. They shared their killer ideas and techniques on how to blonde better, cut better, and business better, which is valuable knowledge for any stylist to have.

3) Hair design is a mix of fantasy and history.

The hair design showcased at the convention ranged from fantasy avant-garde looks to hair history by trend. This mix is essential for every stylist to be grounded in and provides a broad perspective on hair design.

4) Light your own flame, but find others to share their light with you.

The convention emphasized the importance of taking responsibility for your own success and being proactive in finding inspiration. However, it’s equally important to seek out others who can share their knowledge and experience with you. This way, you can continually grow and improve as a stylist.

5) Redken is leading the way for the future of hairstylists.

The convention highlighted Redken as the most authentic and caring brand for hairstylists. They are leading the way for the next generation of hairstylists and providing them with the resources and tools needed to succeed. If you missed the convention, don’t worry – you can still attend the upcoming Redken Symposium on Tour in Dallas on June 11-12.

Now What?

With these takeaways in mind, it’s time to take action and apply these learnings to your career. Attend events, workshops, and other opportunities to learn from the best and surround yourself with like-minded individuals. Take ownership of your career and stay up-to-date with industry trends to stay ahead of the game. Don’t miss out on opportunities to learn from leaders like Redken to “Learn Better, Earn Better,” so you can live your best life.
