Wing Span: Color How-to

By Alison Alhamed | 09/28/2012 11:20:00 AM


For this design, created exclusively for MODERN SALON Media, Goldwell's International Artistic Director Dimitrios Tsioumas took Goldwell's FasciNature’s butterfly concept to the extreme. ”Wings, as in butterfly wings, are the concept and the technique. How they are positioned is up to the artist. That is where he or she can get as simple or complex as desired.”

Tsioumas chose to go strong for this finish by taking the entire butterfly, including the body and all wings, to create this look. Multiple shades are used throughout, including a background shade and internal shading within each wing. Diffusion is as important as color selection. The finished result is beautiful and tasteful while staying true to the trend.
