The concept was inspired by an “urban hipster,” says Stenson, who created the color for this MODERN exclusive, and tweaked to a fresh modern color using pastel pantones. “The inspiration came from the younger generation,” says Carver, who created the silhouettes. “These are the risk-taking women who like to celebrate their personality and individuality through unique styles. These are the young women who like to stand out from the crowd.” Block Party Stenson used the Gloss Sync shades as an overall toning color palette incorporating block color placement. The fringe is the focal point and hero. Playing with shapes and color together, and working with the active and inactive parts of the hair, the duo create a fresh structure and movement. in sync

Shampoo hair after is has been prelightened to a pale yellow. Now add the base color: Gloss Sync, equal parts 8CG and 9CG together making a translucent apricot, blended with dedicated developer. Apply first to the root area in ½ inch sections.<br /> <br /> 2. Draw through to the ends, process according to manufacturer’s instructions. Rinse and dry 80%.<br /> <br /> 3. Apply accent tone to fringe. Blend equal parts Logics Primary Yellow and Primary Red concentrate.<br /> <br /> 4. Apply color from mid lengths to ends. Seal the foil to protect other strands.<br /> <br /> 5. Place two slices back to back. Process for 20 minutes and then shampoo and condition.<br /> <br /> 6. Comb the hair as it is to be worn. Begin the cut around the front of the ear. Cut against the skin to define the line.<br /> <br /> 7. Then pull the ear forward and cut behind the ear, defining the line, blending forward.<br /> <br /> 8. Go to the face frame and cut to define the line from the temple to the fringe.<br /> <br /> 9. Soften the line below the parietal by blending using the scissor over comb technique.<br /> <br /> 10. Continue back to the nape, softening all the strands below the rounds of the head. Define the perimeter at the nape with a clipper.<br /> <br /> “This is a modern approach to a platinum blonde,” says Stenson. “Some blondes get bored and want a little tonality. This is exciting and perfect<br /> <br /> Power Platinum<br /> <br /> Stenson and Carver kept the same bold burst of tone complemented with the fluidity of the hair cut. Using the Gloss Sync shades as all-over color, platinum is taken to new levels with a violet hue.<br /> <br /> Power Platinum<br /> <br /> 1. Prelighten the hair. Prepare three different colors. There will be a base shade with an accented fringe. The base color is Gloss Sync 9V (a violet) blended with dedicated 10-volume developer. Begin at the fringe. Direct a ½-inch section forward and apply the violet base shade to the root.<br /> <br /> 2. Now apply Logics Primary blue from the mids to the ends.<br /> <br /> 3. Cover the ends with Primary blue, red and clear, blended to create a purple effect. This accent shade is applied in fringe area only.<br /> <br /> 4. As you work toward the crown, apply the purple shade to the ends for a dramatic, layered shading.<br /> <br /> 5. While processing, apply the 9V (violet base shade) to the rest of the hair.<br /> <br /> 6. Process for 20 minutes, then shampoo and condition.<br /> <br /> 7. Begin slide cutting below the rounds. Start at the front, slide cutting from the lengths along the rounds down to the hairline.<br /> <br /> 8. Blend down to the nape, tapering to the ends.<br /> <br /> 9. Scissor over comb along the rounds.<br /> <br /> 10. Take the top of the hair and lift straight up. Using a texturizing shear, cut in to the ends to soften and blend.<br /> <br /> Products/tools:<br /> <br /> Shampoo, conditioner: Biolage Exquisite Oil Color Care Therapy Shine Shake (color protector Mist)<br /> <br /> Color: Matrix Gloss Sync, Matrix V-Light, Logics, V-Light powder<br /> <br /> Blower: Elchim<br /> <br /> Shears: Tenyo<br /> <br /> Clipper: Andis Clipper Envy<br /> <br /> Nail color: OPI I Have A Herring Problem<br /> <br /> Lips: Your Name Cosmetics<br /> <br /> Eyeliner: Bellapierre<br /> <br /> <br />
