Matt Swinney, global creative director for L’Anza Healing Haircare and the 2016 NAHA Hairstylist of the Year, looks for inspiration everywhere—especially when it comes to haircolor.

For this collection, Matt Swinney was inspired by the “flower of life,” which symbolizes creation with all of its angles representing mathematics’ “golden ratio.” Using L’Anza Healing Color and L’Anza Vibes, Swinney used the flower of life as the pattern for how he applied the color, shifting the focal point on each model to create the different effects.

“By doing back-to-back sliced foils with diffusion into the base colors we were able to create bold statement of color,” Swinney says. “Following the pattern of the flower of life, we were able to take sacred geometry and turn it into color magic.”
