New to the industry, these students and young talent are already creating masterpieces. Recently at the 2013 Wella Professionals’ Minneapolis Trend Vision, competitors were tasked with choosing one of Wella Professional’s 2013 Trend Vision trends (Allegra, Decibel, Echo, Fusion) and creating their own creative version of the look.
After hours of prepping and planning the day of the event, stylists and colorists with their models presented their looks on stage in front of a panel of judges (MODERN was invited to judge!) Here what some of the newcomers to the industry had to say about their entries:
Edie Loy, Nova Academy in Rochester, MN
THE TREND: Decibel
This look incorporates a curl hawk, undercut and hair ribbons into one cohesive style. Loy focused on using teals, dark browns, chocolates and gold in her model’s hair style and outfit. “To get the little curls in my look, I first took a strand of hair, sprayed it generously with Sebastian Shaper Zero Gravity hairspray, then I used a flatiron to create a ribbon effect. Afterwards I sprayed the ribbon with Sebastian Re-Shaper Strong Hold hairspray. Then I start forming a circle curl, then pin.”
Crystal Carney, Regency Beauty Institute, MI
THE TREND: Decibel
Carney first colored her model’s hair with an ombre effect. To style, she straightened the entire head and then started creating her textured wave, the core of this look. “I used a lot of Wella’s Stay Firm hairspray to keep the look in place. I love the edgy and rebellious attitude of the Decibel look. Wella makes the trend look sleek, so I smoothed the top, and then created lots of texture on top. To achieve this look I backcombed the base and sprayed the hair all over with hair spray. Then, I started using a flatiron to create the wave effect. If you have a client with fine or thinning hair, I would first make sure you add a lot of heat protective product, and extensions to get a volumized look. Luckily, my model has lots of dense hair, which was a good foundation.
