Beauty Changes Lives Experience NextGen Sneak Peek: Team Wella

Wella Professionals will bring the Wella Trend Vision theme to the Beauty Changes Lives Experience runway on Sunday,  April 29. Attendees at the ABS signature gala will see Wella’s NextGen team interpret two Trend Vision themes, drawing on Pinterest boards to create looks for each model.

Nontouring” says, “Soft is beautiful. But only contrasting is daring.” Like a beauty filter, Nontouring harmonizes the lines of the hairstyle, mellowing color so that even the most daring cut gives a wearable, flattering look without compromising edginess. Wella’s NextGen team will present a palette rich with neutral tones.

“Pure Chroma” builds on the Nontouring technique and is all about intentionally choosing tones in the same family to achieve a harmonized effect. Wella’s NextGen team will present a palette of three single-minded pure colors: red, blue and black.

What inspired the Wella team? Wella Field Signature Artist Galin Hristov says, “The global Wella team takes inspiration from all walks of life. Fashion to architecture to what’s happening in the media. What is impacting our next generation in a way that inspires them to be creative and express their passion.

Each member of the NextGen team was selected after competing in a photo contest.  Meet the Wella NextGen mentor and team below:
