Goldwell & KMS Academy, New York

Kris and Beth were in New York this past week at the Goldwell & KMS Academy New York attending Extreme Color Revolution class with Derrick Zeno. 

Kylee was also in New York this past weekend at the academy as well but she was finishing up the second part of her Goldwell master color specialist!

Right picture was a color correction done in Kylee's class with Tiggy Malhotra. The target was to correct the brassy tones and break a banded color.

Left picture was also done by Kylee, the target was to brighten up this beautiful blonde.

Sneak peek...

The first in a ton of New Wall Art coming to a salon near you soon. The theme? Whatever you want it to be... For me, it's texture. A visual smorgasbord - Swedish (like Kris) 1 : a luncheon or supper buffet offering a variety of foods and dishes (as hors d'oeuvres, hot and cold meats, smoked and pickled fish, cheeses, salads, and relishes) 2 : an often large heterogeneous mixture : mélange.
