Beauty Changes Lives Experience NextGen Sneak Peek: Team Mizani

April 14, 2018 | 2:26 PM

“TEXTURE INSIDE OUT” will be the theme exposed by Mizani Mentor Jamal Edmonds and NextGen Artist Al Alexander at the 6th annual Beauty Changes Lives Experience. The duo describe the theme as “the raw reveal of texture, THE REBIRTH OF STRENGTH!” On April 29, Beauty Changes Lives Experience attendees will see Mizani designs that rip away trending beauty topics, exposing that texture – even in its most vulnerable state – always draws on the core value of strength. “Nguvu” is a Swahili team that speaks to “the quality of being strong” and the term also speaks to the strength that will grace the runway during Mizani’s runway presentation. Tickets for the Beauty Changes Lives Experience held during America’s Beauty Show are available at

Everything You Need to Know About the Goldwell Color Zoom Competition

Alison Alhamed | October 1, 2017

Color Zoom 101: Every year, Goldwell releases a trend collection that is used as the inspiration for its annual haircolor and style competition, Color Zoom. Across the globe, Color Zoom starts on a national level. Beauty pros compete in three categories— Creative Colorist, New Talent Colorist, Partner Colorist—by submitting a photo of their interpretation of the trend. Once the Gold winners of each category are determined on a national level, they go on to compete internationally on behalf of their respective countries during a live recreation of the look on their model—including the hair color—in front of a judging panel and audience. The international leg of the competition takes place in a new city each year.
