We are heading  into the weekend with a great amount of  inspo and a big splash of colour from the beautiful collection Illusion by Marlon Hawkins from Brooks & Brooks salon in London.

Marlon won Tribu-te Magazine The One For Colour Award 2020 with this collection and what can we say? Congrats, Marlon, you deserved it. Illusion has took our breath away!

”I always love it when an image makes me look and think twice, what is it? Or how? When creating the concept, I saw the images to be out of the box, beautiful and make people look twice. From intricate palettes and placement, I wanted to create colour illusions within the hair, giving a avant-garde feel to my colour work’‘ says Marlon.

Beautiful work. Enjoy!
