Our newest COLOR.ME collection, Art School, was shot on location at Prague’s Fine Art Academy and represents the return to artisan values and the idea of handmade art. This collection showcases colour in a personalised, creative way through pure, handmade art.

“Hair colour these days is all about personalisation. I wanted to explore the idea of the artisan and the idea of creating colour by hand. I wanted the hair in this collection to have a loose, almost bohemian and effortless feel. We experimented with natural texture and created movement to really enhance the quality of the colour,” says Kevin Murphy.Each of the looks in this collection embodies various techniques in colour, cutting and styling to offer practical applications that can be used in the salon every day while still staying within the ranks of high fashion.

“Art School masters the art of basic form and understanding: shades, formulating, technique and application to create every look. Exploring each in their pure form to create unique beauty for each individual has a refreshing sense of purity,” says COLOR.ME DESIGN DIRECTOR Kate Reid.Art School explores the use of colour techniques to mimic everyday textures while capturing subtle, seamless dimension throughout the hair.

ATOMIC.COPPERInspired by the variations of mirroring tones that reflect off the skin, our ATOMIC.COPPER look enhances soft peach tones in the skin much like the facets of a jewel in the light.

TWEEDThe texture of the hair was enhanced through colour by mixing shades to create a colour that imitates a tweed-like piece of fabric – a rough, woollen texture that is soft to the touch, flexible in movement, but obvious in appearance.

BOHEMIAN.ELEGANCEInspired by the idea of ‘hair in motion’, BOHEMIAN.ELEGANCE featured sculpted curves influenced by our remarkable location in Prague’s Fine Art Academy.

SOFT.LINENLinen doesn’t stretch, making it resistant to damage. The freshness and crispness in linen is enhanced by the matte, creamy edge and the effect is often stronger wet than dry. The coolness from the new growth is seamless, and cascades perfectly using the COLOR.ME LIGHTENING.WAND.

DAISYEvery flower’s colour is unique and creates a feeling. Soft copper, apricot, tangerine, daisy or poppy bring an upbeat feeling and enthusiastic, playful vibes that are evident by their appearance. This transparent, iridescent colour is young and is inspired by the notion of stepping outside the contrived normal.

COCOA.BUTTERBalayage is now a staple and is still growing as a most requested salon service. We embrace a multi-dimensional natural palette, including warm brunette edges worn seamlessly to create an instant lift. This quick service is a must for all salons to create a fast transformation that softens and adds femininity to any and every skin tone.

ARCTIC.LACECooler-than-cool arctic blondes combined with innovation and technology makes this icy trend an easy service to provide in salon. This reflect always looks best on clients with cool or pink undertones in their skin.
