20 The Colorist | JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2017 | DAN & BRECK MELINDA VINCENT HEGGY JERRY When it comes to hair color for men, it's no longer a matter of if— it's a matter of who and how. I like to ask myself, "What's this man's color story?" Here are some color stories you may be creating in the near future. T H E H I G H S C H O O L P R O V O C AT E U R PROFILE: He's been experimenting with self-expression, which includes coloring his hair with Kool-Aid. Now he's ready for something more professional. TRY THIS: Accents of bold, saturated color with semi-permanent formulas like Matrix Colorgraphics Lacquers. TIP: Pre-lighten select strands to a pale level 10 to get the full impact of your vivid shades. T H E H I P S T E R PROFILE: Bright color may be too obvious for this trendsetter, but he'll love unconventional pale tones. TRY THIS: Tuck muted, masculine ColorSync Watercolors shades like moss, fog or antique sienna into the lengths of his haircut. TIP: Apply your formula without pre-lightening for a wash of color, or pre-lift for more distinct tones. T H E N E W P R O F E S S I O N A L PROFILE: This guy wants to look on-trend, and he's likely to adapt today's crisp barbering trends like tight fades or shaved part lines. TRY THIS: Use a formula like ColorInsider Clear to achieve subtle dimension and brightness without strong evidence of a hair color service. Add a few highlights if he's up for it. TIP: Work with small brushes or your fi ngers IN THE NICK OF TIME Matrix Artistic Director Nick Stenson shares tips, techniques and celebrity trends.

T H E E X E C U T I V E PROFILE: He's polished and professional, and he wants to look youthful. TRY THIS: Soften his gray with a demi- permanent like Color Sync, which will fade gradually and allow some of the silver to twinkle through. TIP: If he says his hair used to be black, ignore him. Stay on tone with your shade selection—maybe even a half shade lighter— since porous gray hair may grab. | newsfeed Aquage recently joined the Conair family. ➽
