Alfaparf Milano debuted a new care, condition and treat line, Semi Di Lino, in Beverly Hills on October 21, 2013. To demonstrate the shine and color-enhancing qualities of this flax seed-infused system,"Architect of Design" Josh Banks chose to style members of a burlesque dance troupe onstage at club Greystone Manor.

"Instead of models, working on dancers lets me show you the movement in the hair and also spotlight the color; you notice both when you watch them perform, " says Banks. "Even with lots of product, the hair is still soft and workable and the color under the lights has so much shine and depth."
