It is with great sadness that Redken announces the passing of Paula Kent Meehan, co-founder of Redken.
The beauty legend passed away peacefully in her Beverly Hills home at the age of 82.
Meehan is credited for establishing the "Scientific Approach to Beauty," which is based on her dedication to developing products that respect the natural pH of the hair and skin.
She also pioneered the concept of teaching chemistry to hairdressers, enabling them to better serve their clients.
"Today, we lost a true legend in the professional haircare industry. The legacy that she has left sustains the brand today," says Redken US General Manager, Leslie Marino. "Paula created products and education programs that propelled the industry's transformation. Her pioneering ways will be missed but her spirit will be in our hearts and minds forever."
