INSPIRATION

The

As our 20th anniversary year in Professional Hair Color unfolds, we want to tell a story of where we’ve been and where we’re going. The 20/20 Collection is a wonderful reminder of our legacy and the incredible artists we grew up idolizing, like Robert Cromeans, Scott Cole and Linda Yodice, and their groundbreaking techniques, from Block Coloring to Angus M—methods that many of us built our careers on and first sparked our creative juices. With a dynamic team of colorists, haircutters and true style makers, we set out to envision modern hair color 20 years into the future. Through our artist collaboration, we created what we hope will be future trends, and new ways for guests to express themselves through hair color. As a brand with a passion for living colorfully, we put our love for hair color innovation and education front and center in this collection, and we hope you enjoy the journey!

THE STYLIST

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT

Styling inspiration for the 20/20 Collection came from my desire to bring a touch of celebrity glam to daily style. From Julia Roberts’ perfect volume to Jennifer Lawrence’s undone bob, you can achieve an element of that in everyday wear. My goal was also to accentuate the cut and color while playing up the versatility of each model’s hair.

NOOGIE THAI John Paul Mitchell Systems Editorial Director

Growing up in a traditional Chinese family, education was a top priority for Noogie Thai. After studying Social Ecology and managing education programs at his university, Noogie was looking for something more.

With specialties focused on long hairstyling, editorial work and television, the International Educator has earned two Emmy nominations and a People’s Choice Award.

At the intersection of past and present, creativity and craftsmanship is where you’ll find four new hair color and cutting techniques created by our Team of Artistry. Prepare to be inspired.

LOOK 1

CAMOUFLAGE

AN UNEXPECTED BLEND Inspired by fashion and art, this look reinterprets the classic camouflage print in a modern way. Bordeaux and forest green tones seemingly meld into one another, creating a visual element of surprise.

13


LOOK 1 - CAMOUFLAGE

Colorist

Ryan Belmonte "After consulting with my model, I decided to add green tones to play up the color of her eyes, and I added deep, smoky tones to mute the vibrancy of the other colors to best suit her style."

Haircutter

Chelsea Litchfield “I think the camouflage color can play with the disconnection of the hidden layers within the haircut being camouflaged by the veil of disconnection hanging over the top.”

Stylist

Noogie Thai “This is the beautifully undone look everyone wants. The randomness of the undone waves—not too formed, not too perfect—shows off the amazing color perfectly.”

Heather Kaanoi “After swatching a palette of deep plum, lilac and periwinkle, I chose ice mint as a wild card shade to expose the different intensities of the violets. The end result resembled an Amethyst gem.”

Haircutter

Julian Perlingiero “We knew we wanted expansion with the curls and that’s one of the exciting things about them—you can really build big, bouncy shapes.”

Stylist

Noogie Thai “This look is a celebration of perfect natural curls. I drew from Solange Knowles and her shapely curls.”

7

When complete with the first segment, move to the back segment. Continue taking diagonal back sections and back-to-back slices applying lightener 1"-2" away from the scalp.

31


LOOK 4 - SUN FLARE

Colorist

Irene Toledo “I was inspired by Scott and Linda's Block Coloring, so I used a bold placement of diagonal panels alternating between copper and red for a seamless color blend at the scalp. This technique brings dimension to Fernie’s fresh, playful haircut.”

Haircutter

Fernie Andong “My goal was to incorporate Paul Mitchell’s tape cutting technique. He would section the hair with tape, then clip and cut on the tape, so the tape is holding the hair. It’s pretty cool.”

Stylist

Noogie Thai “The true versatility of a pixie comes to life in this strong, short cut. I wanted to accentuate the juxtaposition of it being strong on one side and soft on the other.”

Colin Caruso

THE FUTURE OF HAIR COLOR IS WIDE OPEN. There’s a level of enthusiasm for hair color from clients like never before. As a kid, I remember coloring my hair to stand out, now people are coloring their hair to fit in.

Ryan Belmonte

THE FUTURE OF HAIR COLOR IS PERSONALIZED. Everything around us is becoming more bespoke and less cookie-cutter in style. In the future, guests will have more say in their hair color and be more open to doing things differently—more individualized.

Jason Reyes

THE FUTURE OF HAIR COLOR IS BOLD. More colors are being accepted, creating more styling flexibility and business opportunity. In the future, I see a shift from natural colors to bolder colors.

Noogie Thai

THE FUTURE OF HAIR COLOR IS WEARABLE. We’re going to see very wearable color with unique and personal accents.

Chelsea Litchfield

THE FUTURE OF HAIR COLOR IS SOPHISTICATED. I love that vivid colors are so in right now. We’re actually witnessing an evolution from color as a wild and crazy statement to a sophisticated one.

Heather Kaanoi

THE FUTURE OF HAIR COLOR IS IN DEMAND.

Julian Perlingiero

Today, even 10-year-old kids have pops of color in their hair. Imagine 20 years later and that now 30-year-old is going to be devoted to the salon and will expect hair color.

THE FUTURE OF HAIR COLOR IS NATURAL. We’re going to see more natural color tones formulated to complement a guest’s skin tone. In the future, expect more sophisticated colors, but with exciting, modern placements.

Irene Toledo

THE FUTURE OF HAIR COLOR IS BRIGHT. Every day, more and more of my guests are stepping outside of their comfort zone and requesting visually stimulating color. There will be a greater understanding and appreciation for expressing your personality through your hair.

Fernie Andong

THE FUTURE OF HAIR COLOR IS EXPECTED. Color is going to be expected with every single service. In the future, guests will feel odd not having color in their hair.

As hairdressers, we’re all visionaries, and true visionaries can see the future. Being a visionary is the ability to see into the future and recognize what’s new from a trend point of view. It’s also mixing color in the salon and knowing how it’s going to turn out for your guest. That level of accuracy and creativity is what I consider having 20/20 vision. As we celebrate 20 years of professional hair color, I hope this anniversary book serves not only as an inspiration, but also a call to be bold visionaries pushing the future of color forward.
