Global Master and Lead Artistic Director North American Artistic Team

THE VISION: “Awakening” is based on world chaos and the day-to-day life we are surrounded by and breaking out of the cocoon, so we can find a new awakening.

FORMULAS/APPLICATION: Natural Level 5 with existing Level 7 orange/red Decolorizer: 1 scoop SilkLift Strong with 35 ml 30-volume developer Formula 1: Goldwell TopChic, 20 ml 6RR + 10 ml 7RR with 30 ml 30-volume developer Formula 2: 30 ml 6RR with 30 ml 20-volume developer Formula 3: 20 ml 5VV with 20 ml 10-volume developer Formula 4: Elumen 20 ml YY@ALL

STEP 1: Apply the decolorizer to a front curved section, using horizontal micro slices and leaving natural hair in-between. Process 30 minutes. Rinse, shampoo, condition and blow dry.

STEP 2: For section 1, take a concave, curved section from recession to recession. Then take a second concave, curved section that is 1 inch in depth behind section 1. Follow with a third concave, curved section that’s similarly placed.

STEP 3: Apply Formula 1 to all hair not sectioned. Apply Formula 2 from scalp to ends within the third, utilizing a back-to-back foil method. Then apply Formula 1 to the second in the same manner.

STEP 4: In section 1, take a diagonal-back slice and apply Formula 2. Next, take a paper-thin, diagonal slice and weave it to create separation. Apply Formula 4 to the low of the weave and Formula 3 to the high of the weave. Then take another diagonal back slice and apply Formula 1. Repeat this rotation (slice/weave/low/ weave/high/ slice), working along a diagonal-back pivot and utilizing all four formulas. Process for 30 minutes. Rinse, shampoo and condition.

There were MANY highlights from the 2019 MODERN Artist Connective Artist Session photo shoot held recently at the Eva Scrivo Salon in NYC, but one that caused a lot of buzz was the creation of the decorative florets created by Haley Garber (@beautybyhaleygarber).  Garber spent hours creating dozens of the florets that were eventually placed in the hair to accent the three final looks by Garber and her hair partner Stephanie Hodges (@stephstyles) who created the beautiful and dimensional color.

Lauren Correll joined a JCPenney Salon right out of cosmetology school, and now, as a salon manager, brings her enthusiasm for the company and the profession to her team. Both agree they wouldn’t change the unique combination of independence, teamwork, opportunity and family spirit the company offers for anything.
