shear genius

This time last week I was in the north bay area preparing for my Wella Color Movement class I would be teaching at Beauty Boutique in the lovely city of Concord California. Dedicated salon owner Nekisa Addis is also a fellow colleague, on the Sebastian Design team, and had her claim to fame on last season's Shear Genius. Wella Color Movement is a class formulated for the professionals to be able to experience haircolor education like never before using Koleston Perfect's new color collection as well as demi color formulation with Color touch and the new relights to refresh faded highlights. In layman's terms giving a hairstylist the knowledge and skills to think outside the box and use creative discretion with exciting new techniques. Using mannequin heads to achieve the color process allows for creative expression to demonstrate techniques that are still new and need a little refreshing. With 5 hairstylists attending, the class was completed in 4 hours, with 2 to 3 colors used on each mannequin and a little presentation by each hairstylist talking about the color movement and thought process behind each look. Amberwood, butterscotch, and redwood were the new fall colors. A little truffle or chocolate brown with cinnamon tones were the preferred brunette tones. Blondes had more gold spun colors woven in to brighten up bleached out strands. The end result, A very successful class with a very supportive staff and new knowledge to share to keep clients happy and coming back for more.
