Would you like to know how to formulate the perfect (and natural looking) Red for every client?  Kristina Russell’s unique approach to Creative Colour Theory will help your Redhead requests skyrocket in your salon! 

Kristina is one of the most talented Haircolourists and inspirational hairdressers in the industry. Her “out-of-the-box” approach to Haircolour dazzles and delights, and her ability to communicate this in an educational platform is invaluable.

Kristina is the Redhead Expert at Edwards and Co, and author of Ebook ‘The Ultimate Guide to Hair-Painting for Redheads’.


Experiential and visual learning at its best! Learn ’real-life’ methods to boost creativity and revenue whilst behind the chair. Learn successful Redhead + Pastel formulations for everyday salon scenarios, whilst being immersed in Australia’s most innovative Colourists world for a day.

Kristina will share her expertise in Colour Theory during haircolour demonstrations, along with discussions on the universal Pantone Colour System with reference to Creative Colour Chords for hair.

Two live demos and two pre-done models will be shared in the morning session, plus a workshop with models in afternoon. Hairdressers will be encouraged to create their own brush stroke and how to pick the perfect palette (including formulas) for clients every time. We will explore how to create beautiful results for warm colour requests; including Base Breakers + Double Process Reds + Freehand for Harmonious Colour results.

You will receive a goody bag containing Kristina’s fave tools plus a copy of her ‘Hair Painting for Redheads’ guide, plus lunch and refreshments are provided on the day.
