The company announced the news at a swanky reception at Fuga Centro, where VIP guests mingled with Wella Top Artists, including Sonya Dove, Stephen Moody, Diego Raviglione, Oliver Shortall and Frank Andradade.  Also on hand was Fuga Centro Salon owner and Wella educator Antonio Favaro. “I couldn’t be more excited about this partnership,” said Antonio. “Providing access to quality education has always been my goal. Personally, I’ve been doing hair for over 20 years and I never stop learning!”

It wouldn’t be a Wella gathering without some fabulous hair, and of course, the educators delivered. Sonya shared stunning color designs, including a modern balayage and a multi-tonal red; Stephen and Diego demonstrated Wella Cut Craft techniques on straight and textured hair and Frank and Oliver presented looks created with Sebastian’s newest products—Eruptek and Resintek.
