Andrew Smith presents his Pantone of the Year collection, inspired by 2022’s newly released shade, Very Peri.
Pantone, as we know, is the global leading authority in colour and predications and whilst some may question the relevance of the Pantones within the hairdressing industry,” says Andrew Smith. “I strongly believe that when identifying what clients are seeing when they scroll online and social media for hair colour inspiration, you simply cannot ignore the domination of the Pantone of the Year – it is hugely influential.
“Very Peri is a gorgeous new trend which I am so excited about. Depending on the client, their skin tone and lifestyle, this can be bespoke to them. This ensures they have a manageable colour that works for them and looks fabulous at all times. By balancing the violet red tone and the blue tone correctly, it is a true recipes for success. “
“The blue tones can become cooler by adding in a little more blue; or the violet tones warmer by adding excess pink or red. The intensity of the colour can also be altered to suit the client. It can become more vibrant for those who want a much more statement colour or toned down to a more pastel shade, for those looking for a much more subtle colour.
