Photo 6 of 6 launches its fourth collection—marking over 50 videos, step-by-steps and diagrams in less than two years.

Re-imagining Keatsian femme fatales, Collection 4 harnesses both beauty and strength to create powerful looks that hint at femininity. The collection draws inspiration from the John Keats poem La Belle Dame sans Merci and pays homage to today’s Circe characters—women who radiate a confidence that can be intoxicating, but oftentimes ruinous. 

“Collection 4 taps into our love for dark and seductive looks that radiate boldness and power,” says Don Haidl, Founder and Lead Creative of “We translated this intensity into usable, avant-garde techniques that are meant to inspire hairdressers while still being suitable for a varied clientele.”


Collection 4’s haircut approaches emphasize scissor over comb and contrasted bi-level techniques to achieve structured technicality with distinct freehand refining. Substantial angularity and definitive lines enhance the forcefulness of these looks. 


The color techniques focus on saturated applications to produce intense light to dark gradients that mirror the natural properties of gemstones. The Collection 4 palette relies on Sapphire, Pink Agate, and Obsidian to create an edge while maintaining a touch of the romance that defined the era of John Keats.

So with protection and hair health being the two key benefits of the additive, she was all in.
