Future Forward: Sonya Dove's Artificial Intelligence Collection

Hair was put into small ponytails all over the head and Hairdreams extensions were added and razored down to three inches. Each section was misted with hairspray and then crimped at the base, to give the tufts more volume.

Hair was gelled away from the face, and Hairdreams Quikkies were blended into the existing hair behind the ears. Long black, brown and blonde strands were tied together with silver thread, and silver wire was added two inches away from the ends to give each section strength. The ends were cut with clippers for a strong, blunt faux fringe.

The hair was merged with extra black Hairdreams Quikkies and pulled through mesh using a crochet hook to create large, irregular loops. All the ends were left out on the top to create a soft waterfall.

Sonya Dove is most known as a highly sought-after educator, talented colorist, Hairdreams hair extensionist, salon owner and industry icon. Her elegant finishes and beautiful hairdressing work are her signature, and this Artificial Intelligence collection was designed to stretch her creativity and showcase an avant garde side of her editorial work.

“My inspiration was using Giger-esque-inspired designs,” Dove says of the artist H.R. Giger, one of the world’s foremost artists of fantastic realism. “I wanted to create texture that yields unusual shapes mimicking nature melded with women.”

Using Wella hair color, GHD thermal tools and Hairdreams extensions, Dove creates futuristic finishes with a beautiful twist.
