Salon I-deas: Artfully Crafted Blonde Pixie

Trends may come and go, but the trick to truly making your clients happy, and crafting gorgeous, expensive-looking cuts and color, is all about taking a laser-sharp look at the person who’s sitting in your chair. That’s the thinking behind the revolutionary educational concept, Salon i-deas, created by superstar hairdresser, Vivienne MacKinder. Come let us walk you through the first in a series of inspirational cut-and-color looks that were born from this novel approach…

Salon i-deas begins with something we call “The 3 Wheels of Fashion”…an easy, teachable, and highly detailed method that lets you map your client inside and out, helping you to look at each person with a fresh pair of eyes. Sure, a cut and color takes into account complexion, bone structure, and coloring. But with Salon i-deas, we go much further… unearthing the details about a client that don’t necessarily show up in the mirror; her personality, her level of femininity, and her fashion sense.

 

ALL ABOUT EMMA

Created with hair-color concepts and techniques by Phillip Ring and Gion Vincent, Vivienne unveils an artfully-crafted blonde pixie look — one that morphs seamlessly with some clever styling to suit three entirely different personalities.

Before:

The Cut…

A graduated razor technique with a shorter crown, etched ends, and a longer, flirtier fringe.

The Color…

A cleverly subtle Shadow Shift, using Blonde Life Lightener and LumiShine Developer.

 


 

The Style: One Dishy Look, Served 3 Ways…

 


1) Sleek Fatale, perfect for a trendsetting prepster who has a decidedly feminine, romantic side. With sleek flat-drying and polished ends, this modern, sexy look boasts shine and minimalist texture.

2) Textured Vixen, a tribal-like lust for life that melds a fashion-forward, trendsetting, sensuous personality, with a hint of preppy chic. Lots of lived-in texture plus an indefinite part give this super-sultry style an almost undone finish.
