I heart Redken Chemistry Shots

Redken has some great information on what distressed hair actually is and what to do about it. I swear by chemistry shots. They make your hair feel incredibly strong and add shine! This month at Matthew Robert Color + Design you can win a complimentary Redken chemistry shot when you post your New Years Resolution to our facebook page!


An exclusive, professional in-salon service, Redken Chemistry offers intense, customized treatments for whatever your hair needs – whether it’s moisture, color protection, strength, softness, control, or a combination of these benefits! Each treatment also has a corresponding take-home regimen so you can maintain the incredible results after you leave the salon.

Who is Redken Chemistry for?

A deep conditioning treatment such as Redken Chemistry is great for distressed hair. Distressed hair is weakend hair that has been physically changed in some way. There are two key types of hair distress:

  • CHEMICAL DISTRESS: caused by overuse of chemical services such as haircolor, lightening, perming or straightening
  • MECHANICAL DISTRESS: caused by normal wear and tear from blow-drying, curling and flat irons, and every day brushing


Redken Chemistry offers six “shots” that can be blended for truly personalized solutions:

  • Extreme Shot Phase for distressed hair
  • Color Extend Shot Phase for color-treated hair
  • Clear Moisture Shot Phase for normal/dry hair
  • All Soft Shot Phase for dry/brittle hair
  • Smooth Down Shot Phasee for very dry/unruly hair
  • Real Control Shot Phase for dense/dry/sensitized hair
  • Time Reset Filler Shot Phase for porous, age-weakened hair.

Golden Globes 2012 hair

I love award shows, yet I rarely have the patience to actually watch them. HA! Soo I figured I would do us all a favor and find the best hairstyles from this years Golden Globes and put them all in one convenient place…

Common themes this year:

Warm Blondes

Asymmetrical updos

Polished texture


Blondes are finally embracing the warmth and it is beautiful.

Love Michelle’s headband!

Brunettes were polished and sophisticated. Chignons were a common theme this year, very classic.

Even though there is texture in this hairstyle it is still extremely polished.

I love this hair color… it’s very milk chocolatish with honey.

The Ombre is definitely still in. Just a bit more subtle.
