There is passion in this look. It is feminine, strong, edgy and young. —Christopher Dove

I wanted to keep the vibe of the Blaze trend but apply the design to a lighter base for an additional salon translation. It still has contrast and confidence. For this look, I am going for dark gray roots, pale pink middle and platinum ends. —Sonya Dove

Each year, at International Trend Vision, Wella debuts four trends to be interpreted by hairdressers worldwide. This year, “Blaze,” the Latin-infused femme fatale, was the most dramatic of the four looks. In this MODERN exclusive, Wella artists Sonya and Christopher Dove, along with Paul Nasrallah, recreated the Blaze trend on two models—showing both the haute coiffure and salon-friendly interpretations, in long and short versions. “The ready-to-wear look has softer lines and a fluid texture,” says Christopher Dove. “The couture finish has more structure and shape, is more dressed and laminated.” Sonya Dove developed the color designs for both models, while Nasrallah created the short-haired model and Christopher Dove the long-hair model for their Blaze interpretations.

MAKEOVER: Basic Blonde To Purple/Lilac Melt

Maggie Mulhern | February 9, 2017

Marianne Lohr (@mannie_mak), a freelance artist based in Bethlehem,PA., says "My new client came in to see me because she was never happy with her blonde and how gold/yellow it was. She wanted to be an all over platinum blonde at first, but then had mentioned how she's always wanted to have purple hair. Her dream came true that day." Details here.
