Side-swept bangs anda parted, long shaggy cut with feathered ends was created using No 4 Super Comb Prep and Protect and Support Solution on damp hair, then rough dried. “Once completely dry I used the RSession Pro Tools Tidal Waver to create an undone movement in the hair.”

On prelightened hair, stylist and educator Steve Elias used a combination of titanium, rose, baby blue and gray to create three unique finishes that showcase a 1980s-inspired washed out denim result with added volume from Invisitab extensions.

“I wanted versatility in the looks so I cut and styled the hair three different ways to show that any client can have fun with their hair given the right direction by the stylist,” says Elias, who splits his time between Elixir Salon in Berkeley, California, and The Black Cat Salon in Hawaii. “The story was a collaboration between me and Hair Art Products with House of European Hair and Invisitab products.”
