We had so much fun developing the looks and creating something really special for our Schwarzkopf Professional family. I hope everyone loves and enjoys it as much as we do. I really feel it represents what is trending in the us today. And we are trendsetters for the rest of the world after all. I can’t wait to see everyone recreate these looks!“
“The Beverly has become a classic and it’s so important for everyone to have an understanding on how to achieve this look effortlessly.
The Hollywood is a quick and simple look for the girl who wants something more than just a blowout.
The Rodeo is so much fun. It’s for the adventurous girl who really wants to stand out. This is the most technical look in the collection, and I can’t wait to see what creativity develops branching from this look.
The Mulholland can be as simple or creative as you want to make it. I love this curl pattern, it’s unique and really effortless looking. And with the mini braids you can do just one or 5, 10, as many as you want with all the variations. 3 strand, fishtail, rope, you name it. Make it your own.
The Melrose is my absolute favorite. This braid is so sexy and chić. almost impossible to do on your own. This look really sets the client apart from the stylist.“
