  • They are dictated by communities rather than individuals.
  • Hashtags can make or break a trend.
  • Individuals are celebrated for their uniqueness and for driving real change.
  • Beauty has become a celebration of diversity.

Celebrate hair that is ….

  • fashionable and inspirational
  • street creative
  • focused on the model’s individuality and expresses her best self
  • considerate of the model’s image and personality
  • inspiring for the consumer, not frightening!

Deviate from competition hair that is… 

  • forced, overdone, eccentric, or off the wall
  • out of touch with world trends and fashion
  • not complementary of the model's skin tone, eye colour and choice of hair colour
  • a combination of mismatched colouring techniques that do not work the haircut and styling
  • a combination of hair colour shades that don’t harmonise or work together
  • poorly finished and does not showcase the colour and cut in the best way.

  • Define a trend!
