This annual event is an epic few days bursting at the seams with fun, education, and boundless beauty.
Check out our guide below to get in-the-know about all the details you have to have to get yourself to the symposium!
However, if you're a beauty junkie and you already knew this was coming up (and have had it penciled in your planner for 6 months, it's okay- us too) Elite Beauty Society wants to send you there....
What Exactly is the 2019 Redken Symposium?
Okay, okay, we drew you in with the flash of the event, but all the glitz and glam aside (even though we can’t really put the glitz and glam aside because the whole symposium is a glitzy, glam-filled event). Let’s talk about what this symposium really is.
This symposium is an annual education seminar hosted by Redken that lasts about three days.
It’s jam-packed with tons of classes, hands-on experiences, lectures, demos, product reviews, and more that all come together with one goal in mind: to teach you how to learn better, earn better, and live better.
The classes, hands-on experiences, and demos at the symposium are taught or led by world-renowned and famous Redken artists, educators, and brand ambassadors.
The lessons and experiences available to you will range from the inevitable, like hair color and design, to some surprising elements, like digital upselling classes and business improvement courses.
That’s right, they’re covering all the bases to help you run your business smoother, serve your clients better, and perfect your art.
Most of all, though, this symposium acts as a giant, symbiotic meeting ground for professionals and newly-licensed cosmetologists alike to meet, share ideas, create, collaborate, and most importantly, learn how to build their business, and their craft, better.
What Will Cosmetologists Get Out of the Symposium?
You’re probably already super on board with the 2019 Symposium (we can’t blame you, it’s awesome), but just in case you want a clearer picture of what this epic education seminar can do for you, we’ve decided to paint it for you.
Check out a few of the main reasons we think you should give the 2019 Redken Symposium a go this year.
All the Classes
This goes without saying, but the classes themselves should be reason enough to hook you in. It’s not just about who’s teaching the classes – although, we’d be remiss to mention (yet again) that you’ll be getting live, hands-on lessons from famed Redken greats, educators, brand ambassadors, and artists – it’s about the variety of classes offered.
When we say there’s a variety of classes, we truly mean there’s a variety of classes.
Sure, you have some of the more routine (but still immensely helpful and wow-worthy classes) like Hair Hacks, Daily Design, Fix It, and All In, where you explore how color and cut work together, how to help your clients replicate their styles at home, and how to communicate effectively with clients, but also, you’ll have options to attend classes that teach you how to embed social media into your business, implement video content into your digital strategy, get your work published, and run a better business overall!
Further, they’ve updated the seminar schedule this year to include 12 classes (versus their usual 6) in 45-minute rotations, and added in a few 3-hour hands-on classes, like their newly added classes, “Hands-On: Blonding & Balayage,” “Hands-On: Keep it on the DL,” or “Hands-On: Coloring to the Beat of Your Own Drum.”
There are so many to choose from!
You’ll want to register quickly so that you can begin signing up for and paying for each class that you want to add to your agenda – get in before they fill up!
Live Demos, New Products, Redken Culture!
How does the 2019 Symposium plan to bring all of these elements together in one place?
Three words: The Redken Gallerie.
This symposium feature is a full-on immersive experience that brings you a 360-degree extravaganza with a street festival twist. It’s packed with live demos, tons of Redken products, logo wear, and all the Redken Culture you could possibly take!
A Super Fun Mixer with Industry Professionals
Like we said before, this will be one of the best opportunities for you, as a cosmetologist, simply because of the educators and artist you’ll have the chance to meet, learn from, and mingle with.
But this doesn’t mean just during class time.
Yes, overall, this is an educational seminar, but that doesn’t mean that you’re not going to have all the social opportunities out there to meet-and-greet with top-of-the-line professionals in your industry.
The schedule leaves room for super fun events like the Grand Opening Event, the Monday Night Bash, a huge music festival at the symposium that brings you together with your new tribe! Throughout the three-day experience, you’ll have ample opportunity to mix-and-mingle with artists, professionals, educators, and more!
Do you really want to miss out on these connections?
An Unforgettable Experience
This one is a little less tangible and a little more common sense.
Attending this symposium in one of the most entertaining, sparkling cities in America, surrounded by hundreds of brilliant, unique, and professional cosmetologists is a once-in-a-lifetime, amazing opportunity you won’t soon forget.
Sure, you’ll learn a ton, become a better business person, and bring home skills you never knew you could have, but more than that, you’ll make memories that will last a lifetime and maybe even connect with people who will become steadfast, true friends.
Why take the chance on missing out on something this epic, beautiful, and memorable?
