"At a recent hair show, I created a segment that was based on imagining a world without color,” says David Adams, co-founder and president of RedChocolate hair color education, “so I began with coloring a group of models in blacks and grays, and then in the second part of the presentation I did multicolored hair. But when I stepped back and really looked, I realized that the blacks and grays were just as beautiful as the colors. And that’s where the idea for Charcoal Suite came from.” Add in the brilliant collaboration of talent, including photographer Robert Lobetta, and the Charcoal Suite collection was born, showcasing the stunning results of an inspired fusion between London and New York, beauty and fashion, technique and art.
