Haute couture, meet Couture Color. Bespoke, carefully crafted hair color was a central part of Yiqing Yin’s SS16 haute couture collection, “Blooming Ashes,” shown on the runway during Paris couture week.
Wella Global Creative Director of Colour, Josh Wood, used Koleston Perfect and Illumina Color to lend a subtle sophistication to each models hair, crafting each individual style as well. Ponytails and hair pieces helped to seamlessly blend the collection and the hair as models flowed down the runway.
