Nothing thrills quite like a model getting a beauty contract but Redken‘s signing of Lea T as its latest muse is a gamechanger. As the first transgender woman to land a major beauty contract, Lea makes history. From Givenchy muse to Love Magazine covergirl and beyond Lea has always served as an enviably cool presence within the world of modeling so it’s no surprise that she’s breaking down barriers yet again. The campaign for Redken’s Chromatics hair color is set to debut in January, but the behind the scenes image is already chock full of hair inspiration. Expect to see Lea looking divine with a Guido Palau coif in magazines very soon!
“Lea T is a true pioneer for beauty,” says Shane Wolf, Global General Manager of Redken 5th Avenue. “She reflects Redken’s vision of global beauty, and has a unique sense of self and a beauty that is undeniably her own.”
“We’re all people with our own personality, our own beauty, our own life,” says Lea T. “I love working with Redken because they appreciate all kinds of beauty. They believe in the individuality of the person, and I think that’s really important.”
