Style Guide: Industrial Culture

Brian Leo Mccallum from ROAR Hair & Beauty explains how he created this stunning metallic look:

My inspiration for the look was an industrial culture concept. Inspired by the colours of the ancient Mayans married together with an industrial feel of oxidised metal I feel this image shows a soft and strong look simultaneously!  

The colour placement entirely compliments the haircut and vice versa. The Grey background really gives that industrial/metal vibe.

Firstly, the haircut was sectioned off in key areas where I wanted to keep out longer pieces or “tendrils”.

I then worked a tight crop haircut between these sections using a round graduation technique and disconnecting the fringe.

I then used a “Halving” technique where half of my tendril section was coloured using a light sliver and the other half coloured using either our Maya Jade colour or our Aztec Peach colour. This technique provides a seamless blend of tones.
