From June 2019 to May 2020, R+Co will fully stock stylist stations at the academy and provide their shampoos and conditioners to the salon's back bar.
"Having R+Co at 901 Academy was a natural fit," Riawna Capri and Nikki Lee, co-founders of Nine Zero One say. "Their products are salon quality and their packaging is fun and fresh ... just like how we like to teach!"
In addition to R+Co products, quarterly co-branded classes will feature 901 artists and R+Co educators. Only 15 tickets will be available per class as 901 Academy adheres to intimate, boutique-style education to provide a collaborative atmosphere for sharing tips and tricks regarding real salon experiences.
"901 Academy is one of the world's go-to destinations for education in our industry," President of R+Co Daniel Langer says. "Their approach to teaching and hair mimics our own, so it's a great way to collaborate and share. I can't wait to see the 901 Academy for R+Co classes. Their interpretation of our brand is going to be super interesting and is a huge part of the collective nature of R+Co. We provide tools for hairdressers to express their personal viewpoints."
