Will your vivid colour get you to New York?

Think you can create an award-winning vivid colour look? Want to win an all-expenses paid trip to NYC? Enter the Redken City Awards – COLOR INSPIRATION OF THE YEAR – and you could soon find yourself heading to the Big Apple.

From big yellow taxis to the neon lights of Times Square and Broadway, the Big (red) Apple is the city that never sleeps for good reason – it’s so full of bright colours that you want to stay awake! So, there couldn’t be a better prize than an all-expenses paid trip to New York City for the winner of the Color Inspiration of the Year at the all new Redken City Awards!

City Beats is the hot new line-up of direct dye colours that will blow your mind – it’s vivid turned up to full volume! These semi-permanent colours deliver the boldest hues (or the prettiest pastels) that stay true for incredible rainbow results. The perfect portfolio to get your colour creativity on! Will you choose East Village Violet? Maybe Midtown Magenta? You’ve got seven shades to play with – let your imagination go crazy!

Feeling inspired? New York is the home of Redken, and the trip includes a three-day Color Mastery course at the Redken Exchange 5th Avenue, which is an advanced color techniques placement delivered by Redken’s team of international color artists.
