I will be teaching up to 5 great add on color techniques all based off the Art of Highlighting DVDs. Mini-panels-based off of crescent panels volume 3, New “moonlighting” technique based off of a combination of Switchback sets and Raylights from volumes 2 and 3, and a variation of Reversible herringbone for short hair, with a fringe secret twist, called Fringe Flash. All of the techniques are creative thinking and can be intermixed in many ways. We will also be sharing ideas on how to inspire your own creativity.

 What’s in for Spring/Summer 2012?

Soft colors, newer variations on the Ombre’ techniques. Strawberry and Copper Blondes are a beautiful twist on blondes. Of course bright blondes are always a summer favorite.

Who inspires you?

I have been finding inspiration in so many places, most recently I was super inspired by Teresa Mockler and Brent Borreson from Redken. They shared some amazing insight on how to find inspiration anywhere. I went the the Metropolitan Museum of Art and found some cool ideas that were actually got me thinking out of the box and ended up creating the techniques we will be doing in the classes at IBS.
