Color Formulas From The Biggest Cities in Fashion
Styles from three top fashion capitals collided when Z.One Concept (the creators of Milk_shake USA) hosted its N.Y.C. Hair Fashion Day event. The stylists blended inspiration and trends from New York, London and Milan. From rainbow colors to exotic cutting and styling, renowned celebrity hairdresser and industry innovator Desmond Murray, hair director Andrea Brasola and education developer Brian Grieve brought the cool and the clever, the unique and the show-stopping.
Some tips? “Keep it natural, but don’t be afraid of irregular details,” said Andrea. “That might sound difficult, but it doesn’t have to be—adding your own signature detail to a natural look can be all it takes!” And when it comes to avant-garde work? Desmond says you can always adapt the super-creative into something commercially viable. Here are a few looks the team came up with.
