Are you #RedkenReady for Symposium 2017? Symposium highlights the most exhilarating and significant parts about being a hairdresser. You learn vital styling, digital media and business tactics from leading Redken Educators and Artists, advance ways in which to hone your craft and develop your skill set, but what’s more; you learn how to connect.


Nowadays most of our time is spent on Instagram or Facebook admiring each others work from a distance, but Symposium gives you the chance to meet face to face, partake in classes, meet fellow Redken Artists, and create lifelong bonds and networking opportunities. Simply stated, it is Redken Education at it’s finest.


"Redken Symposium changed my life. Being around so many hairstylists and seeing so much talent motivated me to work harder at perfecting my craft.  My first show attending was in 2005 and from there I was hooked. Every hairstylist should experience Redken Symposium. The energy, education and empowerment you receive are priceless."  Matthew Tyldesley


This three-day event includes 27 classes and endless possibilities to educate yourself on what it is like to take a class at the Redken Exchange; learn about becoming a Redken Certified Colorist, pick up braid, ponytail and up style foundation from Sam Villa, and learn the hottest hair color trends, design and styling techniques from revolutionary stylists like David Stanko, Tracey Cunningham, Rodney Cutler and Chris Baran. Each day will unite you, inspire you, and leave you supremely excited to practice what you’ve learned.


"I love the energy and vibe of the Redken Symposium. Imagine an event where one manufacturer brings in over 10,00 people surrounded by the best education in the industry and oh yes the entertainment. A weekend filled with edutainment! As a Redken artist this is one event where we bring it all out and go for it! So you can look forward to every taste bud of beauty satisfied." - Sam Villa


By attending Symposium you are not just altering your life and your career, you are taking part in the opportunity to shape the entire industry.


"As a young artist/hairdresser education is a must. So many people have asked how I got where I am at. The answer: education! I was always an easy ticket sale as a young hairdresser because I went to every educational event I could attend. Education is an opportunity for growth as there is always something to learn in the industry. Even for the experience hairdresser who knows there is danger in the comfort zone. All those years of attending classes have paid off as I believe the past is where we learn and the future is where we apply it." Sam Villa 


The event will take place on January 15th - January 17th 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Mandalay Bay Hotel! To register for Symposium 2017 and see a full list of classes and events like the Grand Opening and Monday Night Bash, be sure to head to the Symposium page here: Redken Symposium!
