MODERN invited Thomas Osborn, Bedhead by TIGI creative director and vice president of education and Richy Kandasamy, creative director/colorist, to the our studios to show how team TIGI is playing with the new Colour Trip line. Both were thrilled with “color virgin” Sierra.

 

“Colour Trip offers a great way to introduce a client to color,” Kandasamy says. “You can add color and be artistic without forcing a major commitment on the client. We can still do so much without changing the natural color.” The technique shown allows that pop of fun color that will fade to a gently highlighted finish. The mids and ends are slightly lifted and then color is added in a tie-dye application. “When she moves different hues will pop out.”

 

For shape, Osborn utilized the existing undercut. “She has a ton of hair with a little wave,” he says. “She may have had a fear factor for the color, but for the cut she was excited about new texture.” The goal with shape was to maintain the length and give a strong fringe to emphasize Sierra’s cheekbones and eyes. Osborn used a controlled slicing technique to give uneven ends. “It’s not a clean line. It’s more jagged. It’s perfect with this tie-dye color.”

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.
