NEW: “I wanted the colors to be wearable enough yet push difference in tone, shape and reflectivity, thereby creating metallic tones," Haase says.

LITE: “Separated by 12 hours of light, Lite and New are shades in the same tone, yet they reflect differently.”

END OF DAY: “I created juxtaposing glosses to enhance the metallic effect, adding green to a rose-gold or a smoked mink over golden-blonde.”

Wella Top Artist and Salon PlatinumBlack owner Michael Haase completely produced his latest collection, Shield, from hair to makeup to styling and photography. The looks were inspired by how light reflects on metal during various times of the day and night.

“Color has always been an experimental medium for me,” Haase says. “Today, we are given the opportunity to push fashion in daring directions. As with any art form, we must experiment and challenge our approach to color and shape daily, even if it’s just going a little bit outside the norm of daily hairdressing.”

LA-based Haase used Wella Professionals’ Koleston Perfect, Innosense, Color Touch Instamatic and Color Touch for all the hair color. Wella’s EIMI line was used for styling.
