John Simpson and Dimitrios Tsioumas team up for a color collaboration after being inspired by the brilliance and shine of precious metal.

Editorial stylists, Goldwell colorists and educators John Simpson and Dimitrios Tsioumas paired up to create these two salon-friendly formulas made silky and shiny when paired with the newly launched Kerasilk Treatment smoothing service.

“We looked at the precious metals of platinum, gold and silver to see how the shine refl ects light,” says Simpson, Global Master and Lead Artistic Director North American Artistic Team. “Our translation was just that. As a client wears high-end fashion they feel glamorous as the fabric moves with the body. We provided that through the Kerasilk treatment: control, bounce and shine.”

Kerasilk is designed to deliver control and luxury, without styling frustration. “The shine of the treatment and these color formulas provide brilliant shine, just like that of a precious metal,” Simpson says.
