Seamless Sombre

Borders, languages, cultures—although these aspects of our lives make us unique, they also separate us. In the past, these barriers were impenetrable, preventing us from exchanging ideas and having the opportunity to talk to people we never would have interacted with otherwise. Then, the Internet happened.


Meet Altin—a hairstylist from Mitrovica, Kosovo and fan of BTC. He is a very talented freehand colorist with a passion for adding dimension and layers to dull tresses. We reached out to feature him through Facebook, but Altin feared his lack of English fluency would prevent him from providing a comprehensive step-by-step. We assured him: Beautiful hair speaks all languages! Here is his stunning seamless sombré, all the way from Kosovo!
