The gloss service is powered by the professional and Shades EQ Gloss – a professional-only product that features an innovative formulation backed by science and prescribed by pros.

“We are thrilled to highlight the power of Shades EQ gloss service by launching Redken Hair Gloss Day to celebrate our loyal pros, fabulous consumers and Redken team that have worked to create the most popular demi-permanent color in the country, Shades EQ Gloss!” said Candy Gebhart, Redken General Manager. “After years of incredible color creations and well-deserved hype, we are excited to use this new hair holiday as a chance to educate consumers on what exactly a hair gloss is and why it is such an important step in achieving healthy hair.”

With a Redken Shades EQ Gloss Service, it just takes 20 minutes to refresh your color for healthy-looking hair! Quicker than most manicures, getting a Redken Shades EQ Gloss service leaves you with healthier looking and feeling hair, ultimate shine and refreshed color. This professional hair gloss service is offered in salons and provides a subtle touch of color while leaving hair super shiny and conditioned. A gloss can be used to tone brassy hair, color-correct and even add more dimension to your color.

Since professional stylists can easily create customized colors with a Redken Shades EQ Gloss, the service delivers beautiful shades that are nuanced to each client’s preferences. Redken Shades EQ Gloss Service is the perfect avenue to flirt with a new color without the commitment.

The Shades EQ Gloss Family offers over 100 shades to the salon professional, so they can create the perfect results with a Shades EQ Gloss Service.

Redken Shades EQ Gloss is unlike other hair glosses on the market – it is the hair color that thinks it is a conditioner and delivers fast, professional color results. It is formulated without ammonia, so you can relax and enjoy your gloss service without being bothered by the overpowering smell of color. The formula is also infused with amino acids that help condition the hair and leave it looking super shiny.

“As a colorist, I’m constantly doing a Shades EQ gloss service on my clients because it’s so versatile! It’s great for toning, color correcting, creating new color or even just adding shine and moisturization,” explained Tracey Cunningham, celebrity hairstylist and Redken Brand Ambassador. “Redken Shades EQ Gloss is my favorite hair gloss because it’s easy to use and allows me to create personalized color for each client, so they always leave my chair happy with beautiful, healthy hair.”
