July MODERN SALON: The Collaboration Issue

Whether you’re styling a photoshoot and working with a photographer and make-up artist,
or sharing a client with a colleague in a departmentalized salon, when great minds collide and a vision is shared, magic can happen.

This issue of MODERN is all about the power of collaboration and what it means to work in a trusting team environment. In the Icons Collection, on page 98, see how a creative director works with a manufacturer to bring a vision to life. In Pop Art, see how a devoted team of a cutter and colorist pair
up to craft the perfect finish. And, our cover story by Luis Alvarez of Aquage, proves the importance of the cut, color and perfect stylers uniting to create the ideal look.
