10 The Colorist | MAY/JUNE 2017 | creative th k g estival season is in full swing, so in this issue, we're featuring the hottest hair color how-tos and products to keep your clients concert-ready all summer long (see page 28). While your young, adventurous female clients are the obvious love match for these daring 'dos, many men are opting for creative color looks as well, according to celebrity stylist Daniel Alfonso, owner of Daniel Alfonso Men's Salon in Los Angeles. Alfonso says his clients started booking Coachella appointments as early as January, with popular requests including light-on-top looks in shades of platinum blonde, gray and white, as well as "grown-out" roots for an eff ortless rock look. "Guys are really expanding their horizons and going for it when it comes to color, especially guys with short hair like Zayn Malik," Alfonso says. " ere are really only so many styles you can do with short hair, so color is a great way for them to express themselves." To keep creative color looking masculine and edgy, Alfonso recommends doing a shadow root, but emphasizes that the haircut and styling is what really matters. "For guys with short hair, I like to keep the underneath dark and not color it," he says. Key to maintaining vibrant and vivid hair color, of course, is to shampoo less frequently and use a color-safe shampoo—a practice many guys aren't accustomed to—so Alfonso always suggests that his clients invest in dry shampoo. For new-to-color clients who are interested in experimenting, Alfonso advises going with colors that will complement the skin tone. "And if they have a professional job and can't go too extreme with hair color, they can still try a wash-in temporary color." We'd love to see all of the festival color looks you're creating for your clients, so make sure to tag your work with #thecoloristmag on social media to be featured. f PHOTOGRAPHY: COURTESY OF L'ORÉAL PROFESSIONNEL Lotus Abrams EDITOR IN CHIEF | up ont double vision This issue of The Colorist features a fi rst—two different cover images showing two different takes on the versatile Mood Shift look created by TIGI Copyright Colour spokesperson Gina Khan and TIGI U.K. Academy creative and education director Philip Downing.
