➻ maxime gourgues j { OLIGO PROFESSIONNEL } ★ Aha moment: "I was tired of seeing my girlfriends with bad hair color. If they weren't able to fi nd anyone to please them, I would be the man. I was lucky enough to meet someone who believed in my potential and decided to give it a shot." ★ Skill set: "I specialize in balayage and color melting—using different shades of colors and lighteners to create multidimensional, believable hair colors." ★ Everyday inspiration: "Kids' hair color; you can't beat Mother Nature." @maxgourgues ➻ melanie pruett g { PRORITUALS } ★ First gig: "Mary Sailer, my grandmother who is a retired stylist, gave me my fi rst feel of what it's like to be a hairstylist. She got me started rinsing out perms and shampooing at the tender age of 5." ★ Skill set: "I'm known locally for creating the most natural, beautiful and healthy-looking blondes." @mstylistp ➻ veronica inness d { CELEB LUXURY } ★ Color obsessions: "I'm extremely passionate about fantasy colors and complete color transformations. Anything from pink to silver—or even both together on the same head—to color corrections of all tones gets me excited." Top tip: "One of my favorite techniques is double-processing almost all of my clients and giving that perfect root. Lifting out the color and putting on a neutral or ash base changes the entire look of my clients." @veronicainness ➻ cierra fremont g { EUFORA } ★ Bio basics: "I'm a Leo-Virgo cusp, and that should say it all. I love live music, good food, craft beers and of course—hair!" ★ Color obsessions: "Eufora Artisan color is my jam! It's like a real motion painting on someone's head—so inspiring! I also love a good balayage. Creating effortless, maintenance- friendly color for my guests is awesome. They still look great after four months!" ★ Game plan: "I want to be a salon owner. That's in my fi ve-year plan. I want to create a deep-rooted salon culture and have a happy team behind me." @cierra.fremont ➻ olivia fi lippi g { AVEDA } ★ Game plan: "My fi ancé and I plan to open an Aveda salon within the next three years in Boston. We want to bring a fresh perspective to the Aveda presence in the city." ★ Ace advice: "Use a paintbrush while doing a balayage instead of a color brush. The lightener goes on much smoother and the blend will be better." @olivepalmira PHOTOGRAPHY: COURTESY OF WINNERS
