One Vision: Edge Meets Elegance In This Collection From Luis Alvarez and the BaBylissPro Artist Collective
In this One Vision collection, a fusion of tools, techniques and technologies take center stage as the BaBylissPro Artist Collective unites under the creative vision of the new VP of Marketing, Creative and Education Luis Alvarez.
Rusk Artist Gerard Caruso creates a softly diffused cut paired with Maybe Saylor's whimsical cotton-candy melt using Rusk Direct Hair Color (slide 2) and this rear-facing finish (slide 3) gives a nod to polished forms from Aquage Master Artist Shelly Devlin. Both styles get an urban edge from the carvings of Barberology's (the blending of cosmetology and barbering worlds) Carlos Estrella, using his FX49 Mini Trimmer. Bold, graphic stripes of Rusk Direct Hair Color created by Cali Trostel. Makeup by Ivan Betancourt complements the season's silvery neutrals. All styles were created with the BaBylissPro Rapido Dryer and Prima Flat Iron.
One Vision was designed to showcase the creative diversity of the Artist Collective of BaBylissPro. Although there is a gamut of experience, specialties and interests among the team, what unites them is the tools, techniques and the passion for their craft under the BabylissPro umbrella.
The styles on these pages were created by Ann Bray, known for her intricate hairdressing work seen on stages, in classrooms and in magazines worldwide, but also for her work on The Hunger Games films. The graphics were meticulously carved by Instagram-famous portrait artist Rob The Original using the FX765 OriginalFX Trimmer, set to launch this spring. Rusk Direct Hair Color from Trisha Gonzales in deep indigo and rich burgundy pairs well with the makeup finishes by Wanda Alvarez. The Satin Smooth hair removal brand played a part, too, in waxing the arms to help the tattoos pop, by Jeane Richmond.
