Patrick McIvor, colorist, owner of Patrick McIvor Color Studio
and Matrix Artistic Color Director is tapping into the texture
craze in a different way—with color.
“When you bring out the texture with color, you don’t
change the shape or volume, but all of a sudden the hair is
soft er and you can see all the dimension and movement,”
he says. He cautions colorists to hold back a bit though.
“You must stay less than 50 percent of highlights. A base
color is the color, the highlight is texturizing. One is creating
the overall tone, the other the highlight. We are not using
highlights to create color.”
