Products from Redken
Redken: the actress and the chemist
Redken is the abbreviated form. To those who prefer the longer name, the brand is “Redken 5th Avenue NYC”. Founded in 1960 by actress Paula Kent and hairdresser and chemist Jheri Redding, the brand had belonged to the L'ORÉAL Group since 1993 when it was merged with the brand 5th Avenue NYC. Redken offers its customers hair care and styling products. Today, Redken products are available in more than 50 countries worldwide (as of August 2017) including Switzerland: for example, right here on PerfectHair.ch.
Redken: a brief history
Paula Kent, who later changed her name to Paula Jane Meehan, is said to have had the idea to found Redken in the 50s. She realised that the hair-care and styling products available on the market at the time were not suited to her styles. This led her to inspire her business partner Jheri Redding to create products that lived up to her expectations. Redken was born. The company name comes from the first three letters of the founder’s surnames Redding and Kent (RedKen).
Redken aims to impress not only with its product quality: the brand also wants to give hairdressers the opportunity to “learn better, earn better and live better” with innovative products and “one of the leading training platforms in the industry”. The training programmes on the Platform are just one way of doing this. According to L'Oréal, Redken is characterised by “talented employees, strong partnerships with the best hairdressers and outstanding research and innovation”.
