“We are excited to share the behind-the-scenes salon professional experience with our clients via Busy Scissors®,” states Rachel Weiss, Senior Director of Interactive for Redken. “Busy Scissors® is a new way for consumers to connect and engage with Redken by allowing them to interact directly with Redken products in the virtual salon.”
