This color explosion from the Farouk team makes the most of the season’s hippest shades. “The inspiration for the collection was light and how you can use light to expose color,” said Lisa Marie Garcia, Farouk artistic director. “We chose to call the collection ‘Exposed’ based on how we could expose vibrant color in one style and then, by changing the direction of the hair, expose another color.” See how to achieve the look on page XX.
