Polygon Cut and Color

Symmetrical. Linear. Geometric. Logical. These are the rules that govern the polygon. But Farouk System, Inc.’s newest look throws out all the rules—a juxtaposition of rigid lines and angles and the soft and harmonious color and movement of a liberated shape. Balance is key here. The  lines are flexible, but the cutting and styling techniques are precise. To achieve the complete look in your chair, follow these steps using the CHI Ionic Shine Shades.
