What is your favorite Product Club tool? My Favorite Product Club tool is the Color Whip.  I highlight all day long and the color whip makes the consistency of my lightener perfect!


What Product Club Techniques will you use most for Fall 2012? For the fall, ombre is still very popular and my favorite way to create this look in a rich way is with Laurie’s technique Skylighting.  I’ve been using this technique all year with great results, even with clients who have grey because you apply the single process first and then go in and then highlight.  For clients who have tried ombre and wants something new, I’m glazing their preexisting highlights to create less contrast and lightness and more tone on tone variation like Leighton Meester

What do you think will be hot in haircolor for Fall 2012?
Clients always want to go darker in the fall but I predict that red will be they way they choose to do so.  Ashley Green is a huge red hair muse for me as is fashion model Lydia Hearst. I give my red headed clients rich natural dimension by using my Raylighting techinique all around the hair line front and back.  I process that to my desired level of lift shampoo, dry and then apply a red glaze under heat for 20 minutes and then let it cool for 10.




What can we expect to learn in your class this weekend? I will be talking about how understanding ombre techniques can help with corrective color and will be using the raylighting for reds technique as well.

Orlando Premiere 2012 with Adrienne Rogers

Meet Adrienne Rogers, owner of Hush salon in Philadelphia, PA. Adrienne is inspiring and a breath of fresh air when it comes to hair color education!

What Product Club techniques do use use most often?
AR:  I’ve been blending the techniques lately.  The pinwheel has been altered quite a bit and has a more blended panel feeling.  Also ray lighting  has been so useful to me and I change it up almost every day.  I change things out all the time or I start to go nuts.  Ask me in the fall and maybe I’ll have a better idea of what I did this summer!
What is your favorite product club tool?
AR: This is a tough one for me and after a lot of thought I’ve decided that it’s the lucite foil dispenser.  Everyone in my salon has one on their   color tray.  The former New Yorker in me respects the space planning aspect of the dispenser.  Foils don’t fly around, I have everything at my fingertips.  Underneath the pop up foils I put shorter foils for short hair so that they’re always ready to use – and my glass protectors and foil boards are always there when I need them.
Wondering what you’ll see in Adrienne’s class? Here is a sneak peek…
The Chevron Panel slide features a picture that inspired me to create the technique.  Art is a great way to be inspired with hair color.  I then thought about the design building blocks and interpreted the painting into a hair color technique.  Yes, you can say it.  I’m a total dork.This class I’m focusing on how I adapt the ideas on the DVDs.  I’m really looking to help people do this for themselves.  Thinking about the Design building blocks of what I’m doing is one of the ways I look at altering or reinterpreting techniques.  Each situation and client is different and considering these variables has been very helpful to me.
