10 Trending Color Formulas

Check out these must-see color formulas from Beth Mincardi and the Joico Color I-LLUSION team on the COLOR, Cut & Style stage!

What’s one of your favorite things about BTC’s COLOR, Cut & Style show (Early bird hotel deals are AVAILABLE NOW for COLOR, Cut & Style 2017 in AUSTIN, TEXAS!) each year? FORMULAS, right? And what’s one of your other favorite things? The straight-ahead, tell-it-like-it-is color education from Beth Minardi, of course. This year, attendees got a full dose of undiluted Beth on behalf of her Beth Minardi Signature Haircolor. And, there was a bonus! Beth was joined by a group of talented guys—the Joico Color I-LLUSION team—for a segment on the art of strategic color to create extraordinary visual effects.

 

Joico Celebrity Colorist & Spokesperson Denis De Souza, a native of Brazil, shared his sizzling Babylights De Rio technique. Joico Expert Educator Ricardo Santiago merged color design with precision cutting, and Phil Ring, aka @phildoeshair, offered demonstrations of the pixelated color he has become famous for.

 

 

When it was Beth’s turn, it was truth time. “Trends are great,” she said. “But when you go to a fashion show, and you see a pink, vinyl, thong bikini, you know that a kid can wear it, but it might need to be modified for women of different ages. Today, the two most in-demand color services are highlights and sexy, appropriate gray coverage. So when it comes to trends, we can offer them, adapt them or adapt them some more, depending on the client.”
