Lilac Crop

The hair was cut short around the perimeter in a scissor-over- comb technique and the top was cut in a square layer. Each section on top was heavily texturized by point-cutting using ne thinning shears. The hair was prelightened to a very pale gold. The base and the short hair were colored with one part Wella Illumina 9/60 and two parts pastel toner developer, and emulsi ed at the end of the processing time to cut the gold and give a soft platinum tone.

For Sonya Dove’s first collection where she independently created the looks in their entirety from start to finish, she wanted the cut and color to take center stage—popping against soft, angelic backgrounds, fashion and photography. She calls the collection, "White Symphony."
