Futuristic, Graduated Cut from Joico’s Damien Carney

In Atlas—the new trend release from Joico International Creative Directors Damien Carney and Sue Pemberton—Damien creates a graduated cut with a modern, head-hugging silhouette. “The longer internal lengths are perfect for placing defined color areas or zones,” he says. “The result is a super hi-def, reflective hair surface and an ultra-modern, futuristic shape.”
