Grammy hair hits a high note courtesy of Tracey Cunningham

From AC/DC kicking off the show to Madonna’s risqué performance, there was no shortage of high notes at last night’s Grammy Awards. One of the biggest surprises of the night was Beck’s “Album of the Year” win, who together with wife Marissa Ribisi, seemed as surprised as the rest of the audience when he won the award.


Tracey Cunningham, Redken Celebrity Colorist helped Chrissy Teigen and Beck’s wife, actress Marissa Ribisi, prepare for the awards with Redken color and shares with us her secrets below.

Chrissy Teigen

  1. Chrissy Teigen: To create the ultimate combination of brightness and lift, Tracey applied Redken Flash Lift, a maximum power lightening powder, and finished with Shades EQ Gloss, an ammonia-free, no-lift formula that acts as a glaze, color refresher and color corrector, to create Chrissy’s healthy blonde look.

Marissa Ribisi

  1. Marissa Ribisi: Tracey applied Redken Chromatics, an ammonia-free permanent haircolor providing up to 100% gray coverage, to Marissa’s base. She followed with Redken’s NEW Blonde Idol High Lift Conditioning Cream Color from the Professional Haircolor Collection (coming to salons this March) to create subtle highlights for added dimension.


To continue to protect the haircolor after their service, Tracey recommends that her clients use Redken Color Extend Magnetics Sulfate-Free Haircare to seal in color and deliver maximum vibrancy and shine.
