CoCre8 founders Christopher Dove and John Simpson have launched their brand with a photoshoot that offers high fashion and powerful color.


“We created staple color bases and, within the pattern, utilized bold accents to make them memorable,” Dove says. “In reality, you may utilize the same patterns in all natural shades or combinations of your choice.”


CoCre8 education, the foundation of the brand, is about teaching how to define the shape with simplistic color patterns that result in high-impact finishes. The goal is to help the salon community generate revenue quickly while working efficiently and creatively, no matter which haircolor brand is utilized.


"With this collection we wanted to feature the purity of the three main base colors our clients desire," says Simpson. "Each has a purity to the base from scalp to end. Saturated pure shades provide color interest and movement to the haircut."
