The September issue of MODERN is all about celebrating all beauty professionals—hairstylists, colorists, nail techs, makeup artists—and all that’s achievable for clients through the professional products, tools and education at your fingertips.
Beginning on page 116, Nick Stenson, of Matrix and The Salon By InStyle, creates striking makeovers that transform our models to cover-worthy finishes with help from gentle hair color, hair extensions and, of course, the all-important consultation in his Beauty In Sight collection.
In Total Eclipse, team Aveda uses hair color to minimize and emphasize client features through the use of subtle shading to contour and celebrate clients’ distinct beauty.
In Keune’s Beyond Collection, styling products, blowout techniques, and curling and setting methods take center stage to create four consumer-friendly looks clients can easily recreate once they’ve left the salon because, as hairdressers, the Keune team says, we are responsible for more than educating ourselves.
And on page 102, see a collection from L’Anza Global Creative Director Matt Swinney, who was just named Hairstylist of the Year at NAHA (see the NAHA 2016 Winners Portfolio included in this issue, sponsored by Redken, Matrix and SalonCentric).
As you go through the coverage of some of our industry’s biggest events included in this issue, see page 124 for details on MODERN’s HAIR+ Summit , the only immersive, hair loss education event created just for salon professionals, this October in Atlanta. Topics will include common causes of hair loss, opportunities available to the salon professional, understanding your hair loss client—what they want, what they will pay for, how to have the conversation—and the styles and enhancements available to create the illusion of thicker, fuller hair.
We’ll see you there!
