Tortoise Festival

Matrix and Hot Tools educator and stylist Detra Smith, of Hannah and Me, Moulton, Alabama, brought a tapestry headband to use for this Artist Session, her fourth. “I pre-colored HairUWear Pro extensions using a tortoise water color technique,” Smith says. “I then connected two clips in together, placed on an embroidery hoop and threaded with tapestry thread. It’s a marriage of gold, yellow copper and brown for a true melted water color e ect.” Smith points out that this shading is di erent from ecaille in that it is not melted. “It’s mottled,” she says. “It’s quite modern and the next generation of this color trend.”

At the most recent Artist Session (MODERN’s photoshoot workshop) several of the artists reached deep into their bag of tricks to “dress” the hair for a variety festive occasions. Some of the artists who had attended in the past prepared far in advance, bringing accessories, extensions, headbands and additional adornments. There’s a little something here for just about any wedding, prom, red carpet or special event.

How To Winterize a Summer Blonde: Babylights with Reverse Balayage using Redken pH Bonder

Alison Alhamed and Jamie Newman | November 29, 2016

Our summer blonde made the perfect model to demonstrate the beauty of Redken’s new pH Bonder because although she isn’t frequently coloring her hair, living in New York City means she’s walking outside a lot with exposure to the sun and city elements—plus thermal damage from regular use of a curling wand or flatiron. So with protection and hair health being the two key benefits of the additive, she was all in.

Big Cut, Beautiful Balayage, Nice Donation

Maggie Mulhern | December 5, 2016

Sydney Julian (@sydneyjulianhair) of Design 1 Salon and Spa, Grand Rapids, Michigan, says her client, a college student, had been growing her air for years and needed and wanted a change. The hair was cut (12 inches) and donated to Wigs For Kids. After some layering, face framing and texturizing, Julian got busy with color. Formula here.
