HOW-TO: Pretty-in-Punk Highlights by Joico
Joico Artist Stella Livoti keeps a watchful eye on the Paris fashion runways—it’s there that she often finds her muse. This season, it was the spring Chanel collection that ignited her imagination and informed her exciting new collection. “The patterns were incredible,” she notes. “And the fabrics were so heavily layered. The shapes were created by color—pastels, acid punk shades, neons—but no matter what, the fabrics really moved. That’s what I wanted to achieve with this haircolor!”
Color Description: Pretty-in-punk hues emanate with the vivid gloss of enamel.
