From yellows to royal purple to aqua marine, Taylor says his inspiration for this collection was to create and combine a bold color palette while still maintaining a soft visual result with the overall image. 

"I love working with bright hair color, but I believe that basic laws of visual design and beauty still need to be followed to produce a stunning, yet unexpected result," he says. Taylor shares with MODERN his comments about each of his looks in his collection.
