Our commitment to education at André Richard Hair Salon and providing excellent service to our clients is #1.
That means when he is not with us creating magic behind the chair at ARS he is visiting salons in the tri-state area teaching Redken hair color and products to industry professionals.
Some team members of ARS gathered on a Sunday evening bringing their talent and questions to a foil blonding workshop.
The team broke into groups with specific assignments to gather information about their topic of blonding. Powder, oil, and cream lighteners are all a part of Redken and André Richard Salon's hair bleaching and hair lifting tools.
After each group gathered and researched they presented the facts they pulled from the Redken guide book.
Then we applied the color in an assigned highlighting pattern that Ryan gave them.
In the end we were able to present questions and answers to be properly armed with what type of lightening product we will use and the foil pattern best suited for YOU the best client for the best hair salon in Philadelphia!
Color Melting- Do or Don’t?
Take it from us: we know a thing or two about a busy lifestyle! So, if you’re running aroundfrom dawn until dusk - shouldn’t your hairstyle work with your lifestyle? Color Melting is the answer to your prayers! It’s the process of creating a natural blend throughout your hair, and it’s easy to maintain so you can rock your roots, without anyone really noticing or be bold – and
add a bright color at your hair’s helm!
First off, what is Color Melting?
Color Melting uses two or three shades and diffuses them together. The mixture blurs any type of traditional line color. Usually, hues are in the same palette or family in order to achieve the most natural blend between shades.
You have the f r e e d o m
The amazing thing about Color Melting is that there are endless possibilities! Whether you want shades of browns and golds for autumn, or wish to make a statement with palettes of pink in support of Breast Cancer Awareness, you have complete freedom! You can go from dark to light or light to dark. For a low maintenance hairstyle: you can keep the crown of the hair a deeper so that it mirrors the natural hair. Then, as the color works down the strands, it will gradually become lighter. Or to make more of a statement, you may opt to start brighter at the roots and work to darker ends.
We are hosting an upcoming workshop and you could be our star! We are on the hunt for natural blondes who would like to be pretty in pink! If you’re interested, message us right away!

The law of color doesn't change. Red, Blue and Yellow are the beginning, combined they help create the world of color that we see around us. They create makeup and clothing looks, moods, desire and craving. Our biggest craving is for fashion and amazing hair!
As artists and hair colorists in Philadelphia we crave knowledge and inspiration. The principles of hair coloring help lay the foundation for the work that we produce. Today Ryan - Master Stylist and Redken Educator and Artist met with a select group of team members to talk about these principles with Redken Hair Color. Ryan Rodgers has been working with Redken Hair Color for a total of 7 years and has been a Redken Educator since 2015. Ryan helped us cover the basics of formulating Redken Color and also demonstrated a few techniques. A big thank you to Ryan and the ARS!
Redken came to Andre Richard Salon to give an updated approach to balayage and babylight highlights.
Balayage became known sometime in the 1970's and over the past 10 years has been a rising trend. We began teaching balayage and ombré techniques at ARS in 2010. Babylights is a foil technique that takes a lot of time but the results are natural like a babys blonde!
We believe that education is the foundaton of our success and keeps us the best salon in Philadelphia. Redken sent in a top educator from NYC. Arielle helped us with placement and also focused on which Redken lightener to use for the desired result.
The team focused on technique and instead of using live models we used professional mannequins to maintain the classroom atmosphere. We were able to ask questions and focus on the technique.
The best part of hands on is we get our hands in there and feel what we are learning.
Our rising talent is always encouraged to learn and jump in.
The best part was the group collaberation at the end to discuss what we learned in class.
@phillysalon André Richard Salon Hair Stylists were invited to an evening with Peter Coppola's Steven Lightfoot (Artistic Director for Peter Coppola) and Pope The Barber. Held at Union Trust at 717 Chestnut Street this dynamic duo demonstrated men's barbering, bob cutting techniques and long layer cutting.
