When I left work on Friday night (at 9pm) there were 9 runway models in the salon getting 1950s blonde in preparation for Saturday nights Alexander Wang Spring 2013 show. My bosses, who are both colorists, work closely with a few modeling agencies here in New York. They get a call from the models agent, and get a mere word/phrase of what they need their color to look like for that particular job. In this case it was 1950s blonde, but really anything could be used to describe what the end result needs to look like. They get food, decades/eras, celebrities, art, movies, etc for their guidance. In this industry, its so important to know pop culture, art, fashion and anything else that a client would use for inspiration. You want a good general knowledge of those kinds of things so that you can keep them happy, no matter how crazy their description seems!

Maybe its Lucille Ball red, maybe its Brigitte Bardot waves, maybe its butter blonde, Roman Holiday chop, or a 1970s fringenothing feels better than being on the same page as your client.

Now lets look at these 1950s blondes. This show looked amazing, wish I could have been there.

Incredible.

PS protect your blonde ends with my favorite argan oil.
