AARON; COURTESY OF PANTONE; COURTESY OF PRODUCT CLUB THE LOOK Goldwell has expanded its demipermanent Colorance line to include fi ve new pastel shades inspired by the resurgence of colorful 1980s-era trends seen on runways, from New York City to Paris. The new fashion-forward shades—Mint, Indigo, Peach, Rose and Lavender—feature Colorance's signature pH-balanced formula with integrated IntraLipid technology designed to restore hair's structure by regenerating up to 70 percent of lost moisture- rich lipids. Seen here is one of several new looks created with the pastel shades by William Wilson, Goldwell creative and artistic manager, global education, Kao Salon Division, and Daniel Martin, global styling ambassador. When it comes to color design, Adrienne Rogers, Product Club artistic director and owner of Hush Salon in Philadelphia, stresses that timing is as critical to a good outcome as artistry. "Thinking about developer when using lightener is pertinent to keeping your schedule," Rogers says. "I approach my client one side of the head at a time. The back is where I usually employ my lower-range volumes for lightening. This is where your lightener will sit the longest so less strength is needed to achieve your desired result. When I move to the side front, I stick with the lower volume for the fi rst foils or balayage movements." Since breakage usually occurs closest to the hairline, Rogers says she doesn't increase the volume until she moves away from the face. She bumps up the volume for the top foils or balayage, however, since ensuring this sweep of hair is light enough is crucial to success with the client. "Overprocessing the internal hair while waiting for that top piece to be ideal will haunt any hairdresser," Rogers says. "Work smart by paying attention to the volumes you employ, and your day will run smoothly." THE THERMAL TOOL MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE RANGE recommended by Elchim for color-treated hair 340 ° -360 ° break free Designed for creating multidimensional looks while controlling color application, the Cricket Color Cocktail Free Form Dimensional Brush features multilevel bristles that help distribute color through various strand levels and eliminate tangles and a section tail.

Represented by Prince's Love Symbol #2, the shade was inspired by the artist's custom-made purple Yamaha piano, which was originally scheduled to go on tour with him before his untimely death last year at the age of 57. Love Symbol #2 pays homage to Prince's enduring impact on music, art, fashion and culture, and will be the offi cial color used across the brand he left behind.
