Paul Mitchell Presents Metamorphosis

As part of the 2009 Paul Mitchell Photo Shoot Group, stylists Hope Schiller and Sonny D combined their talent and two bold artistic inspirations to create a surreal meets animé styling collection for Fall 2009.

The stylist team expressed their surrealist influence of Salvador Dali through the unexpected
juxtaposition of shapes and textures in the hair and clothing. They then layered in the second influence of comic book legend Stan Lee through bold black and white canvases that are struck with targeted bold color in the hair and face.

To create the textured looks of the collection, hair was prepped with Paul Mitchell Quick Slip™, then molded into rolls and extended shapes with Paul Mitchell Worked Up™ and Extra-Body Finishing Spray®. Paul Mitchell Illuminating Shine Spray® was finally misted over the final looks to
add a radiant shine.

About the Paul Mitchell Photo Shoot Group
For the 2009 Paul Mitchell Photo Shoot Group, the artists were sectioned into teams of two and were assigned the task of creating a collection that echoed the artistic properties of a well-known contemporary artist. Armed with their choice and inspiration, they were then flown to Los Angeles for a three-day brainstorming and photo shoot prep and execution. The training included a one-on-one consultation with a professional beauty trade editor who revealed tips on shaping a vision, shooting with an editor’s preference in mind, and then tips on securing editorial placements for the collection. The artists were coached through the dos and don’ts of model selection, communicating with makeup and wardrobe, and working synergistically with a photographer. The artists were then able executed their collection under the direction of Paul Mitchell Editorial Director Lucie Doughty, with all expenses paid by John Paul Mitchell Systems.
