Since its inception in 1960, Redken has focused its efforts on educating and empowering hairdressers to be the best in the industry by equipping them with the tools and knowledge needed to excel in their career. Now, we're taking our hairdresser education to a new level by offering a free LGBTQ+ Safe Space course.
Redken’s Safe Space course consists of six five-minute video modules, in which experts teach about:
- LGBTQ+ fundamentals
- Physical safe space
- Building trust with LGBTQ+ clients
- Intersectionality of race & LGBTQ+ identities
- Gender-free pricing
- Client consultations.
Upon completing the course and a final quiz, hairdressers receive “Safe Space Educated” certification and a sticker for their mirror or window.
We hope that seeing the Safe Space stickers on salon windows and mirrors will help LGBTQ+ people navigate their way into spaces that are inclusive and empowering.
