I feel strongly that we are in an artistic renaissance time right now….a time of anything goes and everything counts when it comes to creative expression. We are waking up out of a long spell of creative oppression, oppression which came as a result of corporate takeover by the industrial complex. In the industry of hair, where trends sweep through at lightning speed, driving product sales and brand recognition, there has been little room for true creativity. Until now.
ColorPrint, in essence, is the act of creating a canvas within the hair, and applying techniques from the fine art world to create inspired designs which are custom to our clients.
This technique allows a process of conceptualization and collaboration between stylist and client, and allows us to do something truly unique and exciting to our clients hair. It is a Craft Hair Revolution, and we as hairstylists/colorists become true artists and begin to relate to our clients and our careers in a much more exciting and fulfilling way. With ColorPrint, the possibility for color and design are endless. All it takes is an understanding of the steps, the appropriate tools, and the imagination.
By learning the ColorPrint Technique, we open our creative minds to create art in our clients hair, and we begin to look at hair a medium for creative expression. Along the way, we have lot’s of fun, we experiment, and we learn a lot about communication, collaboration, translation of design into hair and color mixing and theory. We promise that it will open up a whole new world of hair color for you.
Here are some shots from our hands-on Workshop at Edo Salon in San Francisco, where 20 stylists gathered to play with color and design. I was personally blown away by how quickly these stylists proved to themselves that they were artists by creating totally beautiful and inspired ColorPrint designs on their practice wefts. The great people of Edo Salon blew me away with their enthusiasm and salon culture of inclusion and creativity…….It was truly a magical day.
this ColorPrint design was done by Kiriko Kikuchi, inspired by a caftan that her Japanese grandmother wore in the 70’s. This was her first design ever! Blown away.
