StyleCraft, a brand of professional hair appliances created by hair industry leaders Ken Russo and Austin Russo, launched at Cosmoprof in Las Vegas. 

The brand introduces a series of next-generation, lightweight, high-velocity and low-decibel hairdryers as well as  ultra-slim irons with elongated plates. StyleCraft also offers compact, lightweight, high-powered professional travel dryers, irons and accessories that are foldable.

StyleCraft products incorporate new Tri-Plex Fusion (TPF) technology. This proprietary fusion of Nano-Keratin, Ceramic and Tourmaline combine to provide a triple treatment for hair while styling.  For health, it contains Nano-Keratin to revitalize and restore hair from the inside out.  To reduce frizz, a Ceramic complex enables mega doses of negative ions to better close and seal the cuticle. To complete the process, an advanced Tourmaline infusion emits  negative ions for smoother, shinier hair. 

A portion of profits will be donated to Art In Action, a nonprofit resource that reaches school children (from kindergarten to 8th grade,) who might not otherwise have access to the experiences and inspiration of art, design, and music education.

"The art of styling is a passion for us," said Austin Russo, Vice President. Fashion cannot exist without art. It’s essential for stylists, and the new breed of barbers, where art and creating are a daily process. I started exploring art and music at a very young age and it shaped my vision and life. This is the reason we will, from the very start, donate a portion of sales to support arts education.”
