Iridescent Color How-To by Schwarzkopf Professional

Elizabeth Jakaitis | May 7, 2015 | 12:47 PM

Schwarzkopf Professional North American Color Director Rossa Jurenas’ Pearlescent Girls, a key trend from Schwarzkopf Professional Essential Looks 2015, was inspired by bloggers who put street style on the map. From delicate to daring, the trend represents a captivating and courageous mix of clean shapes and precise cuts on midlength hair, coupled with variations on every possible pastel pearl hue. The result gives the impression that the color changes depending on the angle it is seen from with an iridescent glow.
