Much has changed in the past few years, but one thing remains the same — the energy at Redken Symposium! The sheer excitement of being in a room again with fellow stylists and friends and the ability to connect with the Redken community is undeniable. Switching things up for 2023, Redken Symposium is taking the much-loved event on tour so that stylists worldwide can experience the connection.

#RSOT First Stop: Orlando

The first stop on the tour was in Orlando, Florida on March 19th & 20th — The theme of the Redken Symposium on Tour 2023 is The Power of Connection. It featured a streamlined schedule and more intimate format allowing professional stylists to take in everything that was being presented while also connecting with their peers and leaders in the Redken Power Network. Learning everything from the most up-to-date education, business tips, and the latest product technology,  we heard from Sam Villa, Tracey Cunningham, Sean Goddard, Brayden Pelletier, Jamie Sea, Lindsey Olson, Adrienne Dara, Leysa Carillo, Philip Foresto and more!




From cutting and inspirational tips from Sam to color and client tips from Tracey, Shades EQ must-haves from Adrienne Dara, and essential curl advice from Leysa, the 2023 Redken Symposium On Tour is an event not to be missed! In between sessions, you'll also experience a peak into some of the top styles throughout the decades with performances and hair pieces dreamed up by Chris Baran and his talented team. 

More than just education and helpful salon tips, many of the artists like Sam Villa, Jamie Sea, and Rachel Redd shared their personal journeys of struggle and success that led them to where they are now. Allowing us to peek into their lives and create a sincere heart-to-heart connection that many had been craving after so many years apart. Between the laughter and emotion, there was much excitement, education and entertainment.



Symposium wouldn’t be symposium without the Redken Gallerie and the Redken Bash, and this year in addition to the Vargas Brothers and DJ Sheri Doss, there was a special (phenomenal) fantasy hair show by the Award Winning Celebrity Hairstylist Terrence Davidson.

As always, Redken’s goal is to give stylists the tools and knowledge to learn better, earn better. And live their best lives. This is exactly what Redken Symposium on Tour: The Power of Connection is all about. To meet this goal, Sheri Doss, VP of Global Events & Experiences at Redken and the Professional Products Division’s American Brands says, “This happens by fostering connections with industry professionals, inspiring each other to be the very best and delivering power-fueled education that meets the evolving needs of the modern stylist. We developed The Power Connection to meet the way the stylists are consuming their education today – focused, meaningful and fun!”


If you missed the first stop in Orlando, Florida you can still join in on the fun. Throughout two days and across 25+ inspirational moments, stylists will be introduced to powerful education, dynamic entertainment and connections that will last a lifetime. The tour features 1 MainStage to offer 2X more education than previous years and features 60 influencers, ambassadors and artist.
