Hairdressing icon, creative master and Davines Artistic Director Angelo Seminara (@seminaraangelo) is known for his innovative and unconventional approaches to coloring hair. He uses micro-coloring techniques to paint intricate and visually-striking patterns that transcend mainstream trends. Angelo’s designs are living art pieces, adding visual volume to the hair and capturing a modern representation of beauty—imprinting.

“Hairdressers have a skill in our hands,” shared Angelo during a press conference at the 2018 World Wide Hair Tour in Parma, Italy. “To be able to own this skill, we need to put in a lot of hours. It’s like tailoring…our work is handcraft.” Angelo is interested in changing the future of haircolor, and that’s why he has developed the Imprinter, a new tool to inspire and help hairdressers access their creative visions. Here’s what BTC learned about the Imprinter during our time with Angelo in Italy!

The Davines Imprinter


Here’s How It Works:

  1. A slice of hair is placed on the Imprinter’s magnetic base.
  2. A metallic stencil (available in two patterns) is placed on top of the slice of hair, and the magnetic base holds it in place.
  3. With the hair sandwiched, colorists can apply lightener or haircolor to hair through the stencil, creating intricate patterns.
