- EDITION 2 -

 


 

In a world of soundbites, it is reassuring that many of you have told us how you enjoyed the breadth and depth of our stories. We have many more in progress, but in the meantime we hope you find these new ones inspiring.

Casting for these stories is often done in person in the streets of New York, but mostly through social media. A consultation with us is a bit like having several doctors discussing your case and debating a course of action. You’ve met our lead haircutter Wes, and colorist Roxie – but now meet hairstylist Tony Kelley and makeup artist Yuui Vision, both independent artists like those who now sell our products across the country, and two reasons we understand and support independence in the hairdressing industry.

Our models, as usual, have compelling stories to tell. Several people talk about going gray, naturally and otherwise; Grace discusses practically shaving her head; Paulette undergoes a dramatic and emotional cut; Alannah reveals life as a redhead and is the subject of a Kamikaze cut.

Welcome to Edition 2.
