BTC Joins Davines In NYC For the NEW MASK With Vibrachrom Launch

close formula

A New York City penthouse party that served kombucha?! Yes, please! BTC joined Davines‘ North America Education Director, Francesco FerriCreative Director Jorge Blanco and Celebrity Colorist Chelsey Pickthorn at their North America Headquarters as they shared some very exciting news: the NEW color line, MASK with Vibrachrom has launched! You know MASK, the creamy color formula that uses milk proteins for a compacting, binding and hydrating action, and we’re here to tell you that MASK with Vibrachrom takes this to a whole new level! The newest formula was inspired by three aspects: the world of nature, the world of cosmetics and the world of textiles. Pretty cool, right?!


And with Davines, it’s never just about the productit’s also about the brand’s “Sustainable Beauty” message. In keeping with this, each compostable MASK color box features a stunning black and white photo submitted by members of the Davines community. The photos represent something each stylist found beautiful. Plus, when you are done with the box, throw that biodegradable packaging in the garden!


Ready to see for yourself what makes MASK so great? Below, team Davines breaks down three color transformations using the new line. Check it out!



Party at the @davinesnorthamerica Headquarters Penthouse in NYC! BTC was onsite getting the scoop on the launch of the *new* MASK with Vibrachrom! Fun fact: they tested the color line on 17,000 people before deciding it was right. Talk about perfection! ?????? #davines #davinesnorthamerica
