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, Kasey Kayde, started with blonde hair. "To get her camera-ready, I applied formula scalp to ends," Sculnick says.

STEP 1: Cleanse and condition with Matrix Total Results Heat Resist shampoo and conditioner, then prep hair with Matrix Heat Resist Iron Tamer Smoothing Lotion.
STEP 2: Blow-dry using a flat wrap technique and a Denman brush, then polish hair with Matrix Biolage Exquisite Oil Strengthening Treatment.
STEP 3: Using a micro-crimping iron, emboss texture onto a triangle section extending from the high point of the fringe to just in front of the ear on the heavy side of the part.
STEP 4: Pull three strands back and secure on the surface of the hair using Matrix Design Pulse HardLock hairspray to finish. Hold can 8 in. from the head and spray until hair is tacky enough to stick to itself.
