This month, MODERN Salon talks to Hilton Bell, president of International Hair and Beauty Systems, about the Organic Color Systems color line:
Modern Salon: Describe Organic Color Systems. Hilton Bell: Organic Color Systems eliminates the use of ammonia in the color formula. By suspending the color molecules in an oil/moisturizing base, we soften the cuticle and open it with gentle heat rather than with ammonia.
Modern Salon: What makes Organic Color Systems different from other brands or beauty products? Hilton Bell: OCS will not grab or go drab on the ends and has the ability to achieve even color from roots to ends. OCS will not band due to over-lapping. You also can go from blonde to brown without the need for fillers.
Modern Salon: How do you help hairdressers use these beauty products? Hilton Bell: We provide a training DVD and a technical manual. Our Technical Advisors follow up with salons and are available five days a week for salon support. We routinely send out technical tips, as well as formulas to our salons. We also hold advanced color classes on a regular basis.
Modern Salon: What are some of the key ingredients in Organic Color Systems? Hilton Bell: Four key ingredients are important to the scalp and hair: Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, vitamin E, Orange Extract and vitamin C.
Fond memories of watching an Irish setter frolicking in the sun gave life to this Nouvelle USA vision, which is reminiscent of the setter’s multi-faceted coat with deep coppers and golds dancing in the light.
Inspired by the simplistic styling of French elegance, this Wella look embraces the exquisite tones within rosé champagne from Provence. Sonya Dove provides the formulas and steps she used to create the look.
Multi-colored hair is a culture shift, not a trend. Once, you could only have variations of blonde, brunette and red. Now, every color of the rainbow is available for individuals to express themselves. Pulp Riot stylists Alexis Thurston and Rickey Zito give us the details on creating this lived-in lavender hue.
