Presley Poe (@presleypoe), Artistic Director and Platform artist for Pravana, based at the Parlour, NE Portland, OR, says "I have been so inspired by the metallic hair trend I wanted to do my own showcase of a fall inspired metallic seasonal look."

This client came to Poe to model for the newly launched page @stylistsempoweringwomen (see details below). "Once a month I have chosen to take on one huge project, pro bono, to a deserving woman.  I encourage you to be a part of this movement of giving back through our platform as stylist!"

Here Poe shares the details for this lovely brushed metal finish (created with assistant @elliskate):  

Step 1: Lift to a level 9 with Pure Light Power Lightener: 3 parts developer 30 volume developer.

Step 2: Apply a base using Pravana Demi-Gloss Color Lush 3/4 4nb:1/4 6g-equal parts Activator.

Step 3: To the midshaft apply Pravana Color lush Demi-Gloss 3/4 6g:1/4 4nb 5grams gold additive. 

Step 4: To the left front quad ends (applying over previous lifted Magenta Pravana Vivids) Pravana Demi-Gloss Gold additive equal parts activator.

Step 5: To the right front/back ends apply Pravana Demi-Gloss 9v:9b-equal parts activator.

 

More about the #stylistsempoweringwomen (@stylistsempoweringwomen) movement:

"As stylists we a lot of us work a primarily with women every day, but I want to reach out to the women who can't afford getting their hair done, or just don't take the time for themselves, the ones who spend their time taking care of others.   

As a color specialist I have chosen specifically to focus on women because, unlike barbers, it's difficult to take all of our implements to the streets. We need many more amenities to create our vision. I realized a through my journey that a salon is the perfect space to really connect with people and give back to our community through art."

Pie encourages all professionals to be a part of this movement and says that all you need to do is:

1-choose a deserving woman

2- share his or her story

3- take before and after photos

4- hashtag #stylistsempoweringwomen, tag @stylistsempoweingwomen @presleypoe

MODERN will be following this page and tag. It's a wonderful program and we congratulate Presley Poe for helping people in need.

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.

Eric Jeter rented a salon studio for two and a half years until he realized he missed the camaraderie of other stylists. 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.
