Matrix Professional Haircare and Color Artistic Educator Adam Sculnick took inspiration from the 1950s pop art movement for his latest collection. He shared his color formulas, styling techniques and his thoughts on the collection with MODERN. See the full collection here.

FORMULA: Matrix semi-permanent gloss
The model, Becca, started with "beautiful copper hair," Sculnick says.

STEP 1: Apply formula from scalp to ends and process 20 minutes, then cleanse and condition with Matrix Total Results Amplify shampoo and conditioner.

STEP 2: Apply Matrix Amplify Foam Volumizer throughout hair and comb through. Section front two sides of the crown area and divide the back into two at the center and clip for control.

STEP 3: Blow-dry the front and back two sections with a large round brush.

STEP 4: For the crown, blow dry and wrap around large Velcro rollers and secure. Spray Matrix Amplify Hairspray generously and allow to cool (this particular model sat for 2 hours while other models were shooting).

STEP 5: Brush hair into place with a paddle brush to loosen curls, then pull out pieces around the face and emboss with micro-crimping iron for added texture.
