It’s never too early to start preparing for holiday looks, considering those special-occasion finishes are perfect for any fall and winter festivities. Three hairdressing pros demonstrate how dimensional color and intricate styling can make a special look even more interesting. Alfaparf Milano Master Colorists Lindsay Lane and Michele Flores, along with MODERN Artist Connective member Haley Garber joined forces to transform two models: a redhead in need of a gentle correction and upgrade, and a highly textured model who found her overprocessed highlights interrupted the flow of her natural curl.

The artists used shades from the new Alfaparf Milano Dream Like Leonardo collection, which Flores says, “Celebrates the artistic mastery of Leonardo da Vinci and gives salon pros the ability to combine shades to create new, exciting and vibrant colors.”

Both freshly colored models were sent to updo artist Garber, known for her braids, florets and bridal finishes. Garber twisted, turned and knotted the hair for glamorous silhouettes enhanced by two of her favorite products: Alfaparf Milano Style Stories Vintage Powder and Spray Wax.

“It’s important to prep braids with product,” Garber says. “I start with a cream and then use texture powder to add grip and hold.”
