Meet Redken Color Certified Hair Stylist Bonnie Forrestall

When did you know you wanted to be a hairstylist and how long have you been in the industry? I always knew I wanted to be a hair stylist; it always came naturally to me. I’ve been in the industry for 27 years – 26 of those years have been with the Head Shoppe.

What is your favourite color trend or hairstyle? I’m really into healthy, shiny, sexy, fun hair! I like your hair to bring out your personality. I’m always open to try new things and never nervous to take risks.

Describe your personal style and tell us what inspires your creativity? My personal style would be a little bit of everything. I like classy, sexy, and trendy styles – I’m not afraid to mix it up. If I can send a message through your image then I’ve done my job.

What is your favourite Redken product? My favourite product and current go-to would be Stay High. It gives manageability, volume and shine. Redken’s CAT is my #1 treatment. It helps to rebuild the hair and allows me to create new looks confidently and easily.

When did you take the Redken Certified Colorist Exam and what was the exam preparation like? I took the exam in May 2013. I prepared by speaking to my colleagues, and learning from them. I was able to bounce ideas off them, as well as ask any questions I had. I also practiced a lot – I knew my material inside and out.

What are the greatest benefits you received from becoming certified? I feel more knowledgeable and satisfied with my results in creating a polished and finished look.

What sets you apart from other stylists? I’m always willing and not afraid to try new things. I like to listen to my client’s needs and work to achieve their hair goals.

Why should other stylists strive to become Redken Color Certified? It will take them to a whole new level! It will elevate their knowledge and up their game.
