Hair color acts like CliffsNotes to contemporary culture. To make sense of it all, Redken 5th Avenue consultant and working colorist David Stankoâs new DVD focuses on Lifestyle Coloring. Using Manhattanâs unique geography, he explores the color techniques, cultural cues and business builders that relate to Downtown hipsters, Midtown business types and Uptown sophisticates. Every colorist hasâor can haveâall three types in the chair.
