30 The Colorist | NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2017 | ➻ niki nguyen f { S C HWARZKOPF PROFESSIONAL } ★ Role models: "I consider my mom and my boyfriend, Linh Phan—also known as @bescene—my mentors because they push me to another level I never knew I could reach." ★ Color obsession: "Silvers and blush colors." ★ Ace advice: "I like to tell my clients to drench their hair in coconut oil the night before their appointments to really coat and protect the hair before I bleach it." @theniksters ➻ maggie o'daniel l { FAROUK SYSTEMS } ★ Mane Mentors: "Rocky Vitelli is someone I consider to be not only an amazing hairdresser, but also a friend. I can call him anytime for advice and he'll always give me an honest answer. Richard Jordan is always on the cutting edge of new trends. Danielle Regazzi is my stage partner, and one of my besties. She's always pushing me to better myself." @getcolorreal ➻ abigail jones g { TIGI } ★ Color obsession: "I have a love affair with blondes. As a blonde myself, I've always been drawn to the perfect blonde, fi nding the right shades for the right complexions." ★ Top tip: "My lightening progression chart is my favorite tool. I use it to make sure I'm at the appropriate level for toning and correction services." @abbieonlycolours ➻ dylan prescott f { MATRIX } ★ Skill set: "Balayage and highlights. With these techniques, you can create a major change with little upkeep." ★ Mane mission: "I want to become a global artist and eventually open my own salon and create my own brand. I want to inspire hairdressers to do more than stand behind the chair." @dylanprescotthair_ ➻ kayla castro l { KADUS, WELLA } ★ Turning point: "After being in chain salons, I fi nally made the leap to my fi rst commission salon, where I grew tremendously in my craft. Eight years in, I knew I wanted to help fellow stylists, and decided I wanted to get into education. It took me a year and a half of hustling, but it happened and a door opened, so I leapt." @hairbykaylacastro ➻ jessica garza j { L'ORÉAL PROFESSIONNEL } ★ Career highlights: "Thanks to the Ted Gibson artistic team, I had the honor of working backstage at Sports Illustrated swim week—the fi rst-ever swimsuit launch for all sizes of women. I've also had the chance to participate in fashion week in New York City for designers such as Carmen Marc Valvo and Berta bridal." Favorite trend: "Fashion colors are keeping me inspired behind the chair." @jessica.garza_hair READ MORE ABOUT OUR 2017 30 UNDER 30 COLORISTS ON THECOLORISTMAG.COM.
