Christine Zilinski and her lead Salon Concrete senior stylist, Mallory Zenner, were inspired to create “Color Drain,” a collection modeled from the charcoal drawings of artist, Michelle Weadock. The muted drawings depict both iconic women like Marilyn Monroe and sketches of butterflies with gray scale tones and accents of bright pink. 

 

Zenner explains that the Color Drain collection is a nod to the grey scale of the charcoal drawings, with each model showing a piece of a gradient scale, working from platinum blond to the bluest black. The matte finish of the hair also represents the dry texture of the charcoal itself. To incorporate the butterfly drawings into the hair collection, each haircut is symmetric to embody the mirror-image quality of the butterfly wings. Hair wefts were splattered with muted pink tones to tie in the brightness from the butterflies, as well as to create airy movement.

 

Weadock was selected as a signature artist for the Concrete Gallery, a program where unique and interesting local artwork is displayed at Salon Concrete.  As part of the gallery, the Salon Concrete team hosted an opening party for Weadock and her “Beauty & Icons” art collection. This provided an opportunity for the Color Drain hair collection to come to life and be shown in conjunction with the beautiful artwork by which is was inspired.
