Mosaic Part 1: Cut and Color from Farouk


Mosaic Part 1: Cut and Color from Farouk

This cut and color from Farouk Systems’ Mosaic Collection, released exclusively at BTC’s 2014 COLOR Cut & Style show, is a true creative masterpiece. Illustrating the balance between color and design and generating dynamic movement and direction, Mosaics is based on a new approach to sectioning. The collection also utilizes the new CHI Chromashine Collection, which allows you to activate your inner artist by painting colors and lighteners on the hair to achieve masterful results.
