On a recent creative, colorful morning in Glendora, CA, talented stylists from the Kut Haus Salon in Claremont, CA got together to play.  They were exploring the rich effects achieved with the newly-launched Igora Royal Opulescence colors, six shimmering shades inspired by the pigments used by Renaissance painters and dressmakers.

Emmanuel Ramirez (@emmanuelkuthaus) designed this beautiful blushing mauve.  He also created a "Fiery Slate" finish
