FASHION WEEK: Aveda for Richard Chai

It was one of the first shows on the first day of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in NY and Frank Rizzieri and Kevin Ryan (for Aveda) had just 2 hours to finish the dozens of models who were preparing to show the Spring 2013 collection for designer Richard Chai.

"Richard’s collection is sporty and modern, and he plays with proportion – nothing is exactly as you’d have imagined it,” says Kevin Ryan. “We’re slicking the hair back into a low ponytail with asymmetrical partings on top of the head. At first glance it looks like a regular pony, but look again and you notice something’s a little off.”

MODERN was backstage and had the opportunity to chat with Frank Rizzieri during prep, and as an added bonus, got a great video of the models on their final walk. Thanks Aveda for the front row seat!

Everything You Need to Know About the Goldwell Color Zoom Competition

Alison Alhamed | October 1, 2017

Color Zoom 101: Every year, Goldwell releases a trend collection that is used as the inspiration for its annual haircolor and style competition, Color Zoom. Across the globe, Color Zoom starts on a national level. Beauty pros compete in three categories— Creative Colorist, New Talent Colorist, Partner Colorist—by submitting a photo of their interpretation of the trend. Once the Gold winners of each category are determined on a national level, they go on to compete internationally on behalf of their respective countries during a live recreation of the look on their model—including the hair color—in front of a judging panel and audience. The international leg of the competition takes place in a new city each year.
