Behind the Cover: June 2013

The Doves make time fly. A photoshoot that explored the endless possibilities that exist when using Hairdreams extensions started at break of day in their Santa Monica, California, salon and ended at sunset across town in the funky Pier 59 studios. Together, Sonya and Christopher Dove have been creating award-winning hair design images for years and their splendid symmetry as a team created a session that produced cover-worthy results.

HOW-TO: The Doves' Midsummer Night's Dream

While hairdressers joke, “I’m a beautician, not a magician,” magic does happen when a real artist gets to work. Multiply that by two and you get The Doves, creating their own brand of enchanting sleight of hand to show the bewitching, varied results achieved with Hairdreams extensions. The Doves have been “NAHA Masters Hairstylists of the Year” and are currently Wella Ambassadors as well as actively collaborating with Hairdreams. With one hand-selected model and three looks in mind, The Doves demonstrate versatility in shape, styling and color with a dreamy, on-trend palette. The resulting looks—truly charming.
