Stormy Weather: Wella Formula and How-To

Anne Moratto | June 3, 2016 | 11:17 AM

Michael Haase (@mmhaase), owner of  Salon Platinum Black, Los Angeles, is a Wella Professionals artist and educator, an editorial stylist and a creative hair designer who was inspired to formulate this finish by the sight of a televised storm. Haase performed both the cut and the color and shares his process below."

 

The piece came to mind oddly enough watching the news one night and viewing all the tornado action around the country," Haase says. "I came up with a cut in the shape of a funnel. The color needed to really show metallic strength and lights and darks presented in chaos."

                     

How-To:

After the cut, the hair (at level 6)  was painted with Freelights and 9% in an Ecaille or chess board pattern. It needed to be different, yet gentle, for visual effect and have all the colors be painted from roots to ends without showing any lines of demarcation."

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.
