Haircolor company Pulp Riot is joining forces with the Luxury Brand Partners umbrella of brands. 

“When looking for partners, our ultimate goal was to find fun, cool people with entrepreneurial mindsets, who have the experience to help tackle challenges, the resources to fuel growth and the guts to be disruptive," says David Thurston, CEO, Pulp Riot. "We met with many potential partners, but Luxury Brand Partners was the only company to check off all of the boxes.” 

Pulp Riot is a collaborative effort by Thurston and his wife, Alexis, as well as the stylists and educators who make up Butterfly Circus, including Rickey Zito, Ash Fortis, Jay Wesley Olson, Iris Smith, Linh Phan and Jenny Strebe. These artists helped in formulating the color line, and will continue to be involved with Pulp Riot's education, product development and marketing. 

LBP will help Pulp Riot by enhancing the color line's reach into professional salons, while Pulp Riot fills a void that LBP had in the creative color category, together creating a partnership benefitting one another. 

“The Thurstons have a history of creating successful companies that transform the beauty industry," says Tev Finger, CEO, LBP. "We feel that by combining our shared values, vision and goals, this new alliance will lead to a substantial and dynamic partnership."

How To Winterize a Summer Blonde: Babylights with Reverse Balayage using Redken pH Bonder

Alison Alhamed and Jamie Newman | November 29, 2016

Our summer blonde made the perfect model to demonstrate the beauty of Redken’s new pH Bonder because although she isn’t frequently coloring her hair, living in New York City means she’s walking outside a lot with exposure to the sun and city elements—plus thermal damage from regular use of a curling wand or flatiron. So with protection and hair health being the two key benefits of the additive, she was all in.

Sydney Julian (@sydneyjulianhair) of Design 1 Salon and Spa, Grand Rapids, Michigan, says her client, a college student, had been growing her air for years and needed and wanted a change. The hair was cut (12 inches) and donated to Wigs For Kids. After some layering, face framing and texturizing, Julian got busy with color. Formula here.
