Introducing Redken’s Chromatics Ultra Rich Cityscape Collection

Inspired by the hints of red and gold reflected off of New York City skyscrapers at sunset, Redken has launched five new shades to the popular Redken Chromatics Ultra Rich family to broaden the color line’s palette and create a dynamic new offering of warm and cool tones, including new rich reds with Carmin’R technology plus opulent gold beiges, for a rich, monochromatic look from roots to ends. With the new shades, achieve a true-to-tone color with 2X fortified results, 100% gray coverage and luminous shine.


The new oil-powered launch introduces five new shades in Red red, Red violet, and Gold Beige families. The two new rich red shades – Red Red 6Rr and Red Violet 5Rv –feature Redken’s Carmin’R technology to create dramatic depth to the red colors and better gray coverage perception. All Chromatics shades are ammonia- and odor-free formulas, powered by the exclusive ODS2 (Oil Delivery System) and Protein Extract technology that surround the hair cuticle and ultimately propel the dyes and protein extracts into the hair’s cortex. The result is hair that is twice as fortified, and infused with rich color with zero ammonia and zero odor.



To achieve the look of Crystal Renn, who serves as the new face of Chromatics Ultra Rich, Redken Artist Chiala Marvici used the new 5Gb Chromatics Ultra Rich to deliver her shiny brunette. To finish the look and protect Renn's freshly colored strands, Redken Global Creative Director Guido used the new Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Treatment Primer Cream.
