Blonde Specialists In Philadelphia

DSC_0andre-richard-salon-education27

Our commitment to education at André Richard Hair Salon and providing excellent service to our clients is #1.  

Ryan Rodgers - Master Stylist @phillysalon gave us a detailed class on the lightening systems offered by Redken and at ARS along with some foil highlighting techniques.  Ryan is a Redken Artist.

That means when he is not with us creating magic behind the chair at ARS he is visiting salons in the tri-state area teaching Redken hair color and products to industry professionals. 

Some team members of ARS gathered on a Sunday evening bringing their talent and questions to a foil blonding workshop. 

The team broke into groups with specific assignments to gather information about their topic of blonding. Powder, oil, and cream lighteners are all a part of Redken and André Richard Salon's hair bleaching and hair lifting tools. 

After each group gathered and researched they presented the facts they pulled from the Redken guide book. 

 

Then we applied the color in an assigned highlighting pattern that Ryan gave them. 

In the end we were able to present questions and answers to be properly armed with what type of lightening product we will use and the foil pattern best suited for YOU the best client for the best hair salon in Philadelphia!

Keratin Complex at Andre Richard Salon In Philadelphia

What is keratin?

Keratin is a protein found naturally in skin, hair and nails, in addition to other sources. In human hair, it acts both as an external protective shield and an internal structural protein. Keratin is the first thing depleted when hair is damaged physically, chemically or from environmental factors such as the sun.

What does keratin do?

Keratin Complex’s signature keratin is comparable to the keratin present in human hair. When used in product formulations, keratin helps condition, strengthen, revitalize and repair damage. Keratin gives the hair shine, elasticity and a more youthful, healthy appearance.

What is a Smoothing Therapy treatment?

Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy treatments are professional smoothing treatments powered by our signature keratin. All treatments are performed in-salon by a professional stylist. Smoothing Therapy treatments repair damage and breakage, reduce frizz, curl and unruly flyaways, and make the hair smoother and healthier-looking. They also prevent humidity, the main cause of frizz, from impacting the hair. After a Smoothing Therapy treatment, it’s easier to achieve a flawless blowout at home: The hair is more manageable, blow-drying becomes quicker and easier, and daily styling time is significantly reduced.

 

What in-salon smoothing services does Keratin Complex offer?

Keratin Complex offers smoothing solutions for every hair type that cater to the desired result, cost, longevity, waiting period and time in-salon. We recommend that you first undergo a consultation with a Keratin Complex stylist to decide which treatment is best for you. Ask your stylist about our Menu of Services, which offers customizable Keratin Complex treatments to meet your specific needs.

Our signature in-salon smoothing services reduce frizz and curl, improve overall manageability and versatility, and make hair smoother, shinier and healthier-looking.

  • Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment: our signature smoothing treatment that delivers the longest-lasting results
  • Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment for Blonde Hair: customized smoothing for blonde and fragile hair
  • Express Blow Out™: the speedy smoothing solution that delivers smoother hair without the wait
  • Advanced Glycolic Smoothing System: our newest treatment innovation, offering same-day styling with zero downtime

What happens during a Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy treatment?

Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy treatments utilize a simple, four-step process. Your stylist will first use a special deep-clarifying shampoo to prepare the hair for treatment and to remove residue and buildup resulting from previous hair care products. Next, the selected smoothing treatment is applied; the hair is blow-dried and then flat ironed, sealing in the treatment for a smooth, silky finish. Steps may vary depending on the service performed.

Do Keratin Complex keratin treatments straighten the hair?

Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy treatments are not straightening treatments. Smoothing Therapy treatments reduce curl patterns in curly, wavy or unruly hair, thus providing a straightening effect without permanently changing the structure of the hair. In addition to being easier to maintain after treatment, your hair will have the versatility to be styled curly, wavy or straight as desired.

It is important to discuss your goals with your stylist to understand the overall results you can expect to achieve with a Smoothing Therapy treatment.

How long will my treatment results last?

Treatment longevity may vary depending on the selected treatment, your individual lifestyle, and your at-home maintenance regimen. Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment and Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment for Blonde Hair deliver results that last up to five months; Express Blow Out results last up to six weeks; and Advanced Glycolic Smoothing System results last up to three months. Consistent use of Keratin Complex keratin-enhanced products, including our collection of sodium chloride-free and sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners, will help prolong the results of your treatment.

When can I shampoo after a Keratin Complex treatment?

To promote the longest-lasting results, Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment and Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment for Blonde Hair require a 72-hour waiting period before shampooing. After an Express Blow Out treatment, we recommend a waiting period of at least eight hours before shampooing.

You may extend the waiting period if desired after Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment, Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment for Blonde Hair or Express Blow Out without affecting your results. You may also use Keratin Complex Volumizing Dry Shampoo Lift Powder at any time during the waiting period to absorb excess oil, remove odors, and refresh hair and scalp.

There is no waiting period after Advanced Glycolic Smoothing System. You may shampoo, condition and style as desired after treatment.

Your stylist will recommend the best treatment for you based on your lifestyle, hair type and desired results.

What if my hair gets wet during the waiting period?

If your hair gets wet in the waiting period following a Smoothing Therapy treatment, simply blow-dry and flat iron on low heat as soon as possible.

There is no waiting period following the Advanced Glycolic Smoothing System treatment; if your hair does get wet after treatment, it will not impact your result

How much does a Smoothing Therapy treatment cost?

Prices depend on a variety of factors, including the selected treatment, the density and length of the hair, and choice of salon. Contact your salon for specific pricing.

Can I get a Keratin Complex treatment if I am pregnant or nursing?

As with any chemical service, pregnant or nursing women should seek the advice of their physician before use.

Does Keratin Complex test on animals?

Keratin Complex does not conduct animal testing and does not test its product formulations on animals.

How soon before or after a treatment can I color or lighten my hair?

Hair may be lightened or colored on the same day that a Smoothing Therapy treatment is performed. Your stylist will make the proper recommendation and provide additional information during your consultation.

Color Melting With Redken City Beats In Philadelphia

Color Melting- Do or Don’t?

Take it from us: we know a thing or two about a busy lifestyle!  So, if you’re running aroundfrom dawn until dusk -  shouldn’t your hairstyle work with your lifestyle? Color Melting is the answer to your prayers! It’s the process of creating a natural blend throughout your hair, and it’s easy to maintain so you can rock your roots, without anyone really noticing or be bold – and 


add a bright color at your hair’s helm!

First off, what is Color Melting?

Color Melting uses two or three shades and diffuses them together. The mixture blurs any type of traditional line color. Usually, hues are in the same palette or family in order to achieve the most natural blend between shades.

You have the f r e e d o m

The amazing thing about Color Melting is that there are endless possibilities! Whether you want shades of browns and golds for autumn, or wish to make a statement with palettes of pink in support of Breast Cancer Awareness, you have complete freedom! You can go from dark to light or light to dark. For a low maintenance hairstyle: you can keep the crown of the hair a deeper so that it mirrors the natural hair. Then, as the color works down the strands, it will gradually become lighter. Or to make more of a statement, you may opt to start brighter at the roots and work to darker ends.

Casting Call 

We are hosting an upcoming workshop and you could be our star! We are on the hunt for natural blondes who would like to be pretty in pink! If you’re interested, message us right away!

In the meantime, check out some of these Color Melting styles we know you will absolutely love! Get On The List Here

Gender Neutral Haircuts in Philadelphia Are Finally Here

This isn't JUST because so many people are living out loud as themselves and not wanting to conform. For years hair stylists have heard "i'm a girl getting a guys haircut, why do I have to pay for a womans haircut"?! Or, we have that man with gorgeous long hair that we work just as hard on and its a short mens price. Its time we took a stance and followed some industry leaders like http://www.loganparlor.com  in Chicago who helped pioneer this gender neutral pricing menu. We are thrilled to answer your questions should it be a phone call, email or walkin.

 

Cheers to equality!
