We cover quite a bit of color ground in this interview. Sonya and Christopher talk about working with the new Koleston Perfect Pure shades and offer their ideas for keeping color sales strong when clients have a tendency to stretch appointments. And, since I caught them on stage while we were all in Chicago for America's Beauty Show, I asked them to recap the 2010 Wella Trend Vision collection and describe their interpretations on MIdnight Stage, Nature's Goddess, Nomad Culture, and Techno Poetry.
So you can follow along visually as Sonya and Christopher describe these trends, I've included images from the 2010 Wella Trend Vision collection, as well as images taken from the Doves' stage presentation:
