✖️ What’s in a name(tag)?✖️
Or rather, what’s behind the nametag.
10 years in the industry.
5+ years of working towards becoming a Redken Artist through education and certifications, as well as generally working on myself and my craft.
Years of picking the brains of other artists as I attended their classes so that I could be as prepared as possible going into submitting all of my audition pieces.
2 months of getting all of those pieces together.
Several months of waiting to find out if it was all worth it. Spoiler, it absolutely was.
✖️Here’s the really mushy part. ✖️
The day that I filmed my audition video, my uncle called me and told me I needed to get in the car and get home to Georgia because my dad who had been diagnosed with cancer two months prior didn’t have much time.
One of the last things I told my dad before he was too sick to understand was that I was finally going to audition to be a Redken Artist, after many years of talking about it.
I had no idea at the time what that would really look like or how I was going to pay for the training, but I was going to do it.
After my dad passed, I found out I was left some money, and I immediately felt like it was his last gift to me.
So I spent the time afterwards while I wasn’t working to finish my audition package and send it in. ✖️
This wasn’t just for me. It was for him too. And it was made possible in part because of him. ✖️
This experience definitely showed me how to be a little more vulnerable. That personality goes a long way if you let people see it, all of it. ✖️

✖️ O H, H E Y✖️ My name is Cait, and today I joined an incredible group of people as @redken’s newest Artists.
Who are we? A dedicated and passionate group of professionals from all across the country who came together to learn how to help better other professionals in the hair industry. We are here to help guide our future class attendees to new discoveries that they can elevate their craft with, as well as live their best lives by taking these new tools back to their salons.
Our induction group was challenged like no other. Yes. I said it, and I’m sticking to it.
We began our training in February of 2020, then a global pandemic caused everything to come to a screeching halt. Instead of giving up, this incredible group persevered, using the down time to continue to grow.
We were finally able to come back together last month virtually- the first group to ever do so- and today was our graduation day.
The group is far too large to tag everyone, but you all know who you are.
We did it.
Thank you to our trainers, manager of training, and director of training. With you, this was made possible for all of us.
A special nod goes to @cortmcclearyhair and @witch.shades for being the other peas in my pod over the last 18 months. They are my mini tribe and I am forever thankful for them.

More than half a decade in the making.
2015 was the class that made me realize “oh. I want to do this. I want to teach and help others feel the way I feel right now. Power through knowledge.”
2017 was when I took Redken colour certification, knowing it was something that had to be done to get here.
2019 was when I filmed an audition video, submitted a whole packet of stuff, had an interview, and after some months I was told I had been accepted into the Redken Artist Induction program.

✖️ S P I R A L I N G✖️ To finish Shanny’s hair and get the colour result she wanted, I utilized @redken Shades EQ gloss. ✖️ I treated and then dried her hair so that I could apply her gloss and then process the full 20 minutes. ✖️ I used A combination of

✖️ S P I R A L I N G✖️ For Shanny’s hair, I used a balayage technique to lighten the ends of her hair, but leave a diffused look towards her scalp. ✖️ I used @redken Flashlift with Bonder inside, moving from 20 to 30 volume and processed for the full 50 minutes. ✖️ Check the next post for details on how we achieved the red tone after lightening. ✖️ #caitgilesstyles #redken #redkenshadeseq #redkencertifiedcolorist #ittakesapro #diabetichairstylist #atlantahair #atlhair #atlantahairstylist #decaturhair #hairofatlanta #hairofatl

There’s no bigger compliment than a referral from someone. Knowing that they love what you do enough to send a friend or family member in to see you is amazing. Shanny here was sent my way by my kid sister, which is very special to me. It already feels like I’ve known her for much longer. ✖️ Shanny has the most beautiful, shiny, long, curly hair. I love working with it and I especially love getting to make it red. ✖️ Colour is @redken, styling is @mizani.

One more of this really versatile look. ✖️ @Redken often talks about colour as a whisper, talk, or shout. This type of colour can both talk and shout. ✖️ Worn down and more loosely styled, it gives subtle impact, worn up, half up, or more tightly curled, we get a stronger and more vibrant impact. ✖️Colour by Redken.

Besides easier maintenance due to hidden growth, I love the many styling options to show off split tone hair. ✖️ For a top/ bottom split, a half up style and braids will really show it off. For a side to side split, parting the hair to different sides versus the middle or in a zigzag part can give a lot of visual interest. ✖️ #caitgilesstyles #redken #redkenobsessed #redkenready #redkenshadeseq #redkenelitesalon #redkencertifiedcolorist #redkencolor #redkenhaircare #showusyourshades #saloncentric #ittakesapro #diabetichairstylist #atlanta #atl #atlantahair #atlhair #atlantahairstylist #decaturhair #hairofatlanta #hairofatl #hairgoals #redhair #hairtrends #vividhaircolor #vividhair

A vivid colour doesn’t have to take up all of the hair to be high impact. I’m really into the peek-a-boo colours that can be made to look subtle or intense depending on how the hair is worn. ✖️ This guest and her mom did some colour on her hair while the world was locked down, and then had me go in after to give it new life. ✖️ I lightened where it had grown out and used @Redken Shades EQ cream to make the vibrancy of the red really pop, but also give it more longevity than semi-permanent colour tends to have✖️ With all of the colour being underneath, it keeps the maintenance to a minimum because the grow out is hidden ✖️ What hair trends are you loving right now? ✖️ #caitgilesstyles #redken #redkenobsessed #redkenready #redkenshadeseq #redkenelitesalon #redkencertifiedcolorist #redkencolor #redkenhaircare #showusyourshades #saloncentric #ittakesapro #diabetichairstylist #atlanta #atl #atlantahair #atlhair #atlantahairstylist #decaturhair #hairofatlanta #hairofatl #hairgoals #redhair #vividhaircolor #hairtrends2021

Let’s talk about @Redken’s newest haircare family. Have you ever looked at the massive selection of haircare from Redken and wondered what’s the best fit for you, or maybe felt like none of them quite fit what your need? Enter Acidic Bonding Concentrate. ✖️ This family of products is for everyone, whether you heat style, colour, or not. It’s built to help balance the pH of the hair to keep it as strong and healthy as possible.✖️ The benefits include: 56% reduction in breakage, Less visible split ends, Smoothing and frizz taming, Protects against colour fade, Adds shine, and protects from heat up to 450°. ✖️ The shampoo and conditioner are very concentrated and rich, but not heavy.
