Let’s get the look with Carolyn Newman

Carolyn Newman, good friend of Colour World, has shared her first creative collection for Insight Professional UK. We love it! Subtle yet individual, accessible for your client yet challenging you as an artist. So let’s get the look with Carolyn Newman: 

“Our first Insight Professional UK Collection is called Capsule. It was created by using the new Insight Capsule colours, with tones of Mink, Rouge and Bronze using my colour-blocking technique. We explored each haircut shape and created a fresh wearable texture which we feel is current and will suit varying lengths and styles. The collection is inspired by the simplicity of colour blocking that can be subtle and interesting, or bold and daring. The possibilities with this technique are endless and I love the fact that it’s so versatile.” Carolyn Newman, Insight UK Ambassador
