Graphic Statement: Cut & Color How-To
Lucie Doughty, Paul Mitchell global editorial director, looked to 1980s patterns, graphics, contrasting colors and abstract shapes for her color inspiration.
“Today, it’s perfectly acceptable to have some blue or pink hints in the hair,” Doughty says. “As hairdressers, we have to look ahead and recognize that people want to think of new ways to decorate. I was fascinated by pixelated hair, stamping and stenciling. In this look, I’m decorating with color and working with the shape of the haircut.”
To create the ideal silhouette for the color, Julian Perlingiero, Paul Mitchell international trainer, contoured the head shape using stark geometric blocks and sections. These shapes overlap and provide movement as well as a sharp statement in the fringe by means of blunt, freehand detailing.
