Iridescence by Travis Bandiera @ Royals Hair

Iridescence (also known as goniochromism) is the phenomenon of certain surfaces that appear to change color as the angle of view or the angle of illumination changes. Examples of iridescence include soap bubbles, butterfly wings and sea shells, as well as certain minerals.

Travis Bandiera’s interpretation of iridescence with this collection translates especially to color for obvious reasons. “I will always be using the idea that different surfaces/minerals create different tones due to density and using this on certain styles and haircuts, for example; a lighter texture such as a bubble would feature lighter tones directly translating to lighter hair literally with hair color, movement and free-flowing styles,” says Travis.

Darker tones with a heavier density like an oil spill would be harder, with a more structured/finished aspect to the hair and reflect a ‘cooler’ variation of color tones. “With the collection I decided that I would be sticking with a very strict color palette. Also aspects of the styling, makeup and photography are designed to obviously enhance the overall effect,” says Travis.
