Ice cream you scream…

… we all scream for ice cream! Loving a friendly little story from Barrie Stephen salon who took sweet inspiration to create a new hair colour that is scrummy.  The tale goes like this: The chefs at Gelato Village in Leicester invite their ‘Maestri Gelatieri’ friends to celebrate artisan ice-cream-making by coming up with 16  gelato and sorbetto creations, showcasing the best produce of the season and sponsored by local firms. Barrie Stephen sponsored the ‘fig, almond and bay’ gelato and came up with a look to complement it. Such fun.

Barrie (pictured above with his model and the chefs) explained his look as: “Gelato is the creme de la creme of ice cream, and we were inspired by the luxurious ingredients fused together with an almond body and soft fig interior creating a taste explosion.
We incorporated this idea into the hair giving our model a global colour of Schwarkopf BlondeMe with an Ice and sand toner featuring swirls of Schwarzkopf Professional Strawberry Instant Blush.
A great picture and a story to boost local press awareness. Cool!
