GOLDWELL—THE PERFECT STORM

 

Goldwell Artistic Director Rebecca Hiele, National Artists Nick Pagano and Sonna Brado and Global Color Ambassador Mark Leeson looked to the sky and returned to earth with hues inspired by storm-tossed clouds, brilliant sunsets and rosy dawns. “Color is all about reflection of light,” said Rebecca, “like the sky before the storm.” The team demonstrated new sectioning techniques and covered on-trend topics like color melting and high-low shadowing.  Leeson, a multiple British Hairdressing Awards winner, gave the audience a special treat—a presentation of the editorial types of looks that have led to his many awards.

He demonstrated two techniques that he dubbed “Saturday morning techniques”—designed to deliver major impact in a minimum amount of time, and was joined by Global Artistic Director for Makeup Janelle Geason for a segment on head to toe color.

PAUL MITCHELL—COLOR REVOLUTION

 

“The brains aren’t in the color, they’re in your head,” declared Paul Mitchell VP of Education for Shows and Events Stephanie Kocielski. With that, Stephanie and the rest of the Paul Mitchell team—Global Artistic & Business Director Robert Cromeans, Hair Color Artistic Director Linda Yodice and Editorial Director Lucie Doughty—demonstrated some brainy approaches to time-saving applications and income-producing tactics. The team also found time for a little bit of fun—with fantasy color, bouffants, beehives and some snappy snipping.

FAROUK SYSTEMS—COLOR IN MOTION

Farouk’s Patrick Kalle, Maurice den Exter and Richard Jordan traveled from Holland to bring their unique blend of education and entertainment to the COLOR audience. The rhythm and motion of their haircolor came to life in their models’ dance numbers, and amidst the music were a number of thought-provoking techniques and shades, like a stencil-type color effect done with a baker’s pastry bag and nozzle.

TIGI—COLOR AND CUTTING
