We just watched Davines premiering its latest collection video and hair demo – the second chapter of the lifestyle collection “Sculpture Prints”- by hair art director Tom Connell alongside colourist Ashleigh Hodges and we got so excited!  This – shot in film and dedicated to salons- collection is a must see for every colourist. The duo has showcased the new sculptoning technique; a process that provides creative freedom to every hairdresser.

Sculptoning is the new thing

Blonde is on the spotlight. Highlights and foils are old news. Today new techniques propose artistic strokes made freehand, using brushes or other tools, like in balayage. But what if you can go further? How can you stand out and create new trends?

Tom and Ashleigh wanted to create a new artistic concept using hair as a valuable raw material on which hairdressers can sculpt volumes freehand using different shades of blonde.Sculptoning is based on reversing the perspective and instead of lightening, we create darker sections in strategic spots of the head. For the second look the hair is styled into a ponytail and treated like a sculpture. Colour is applied by the hairdresser with freehand strokes in the areas to be enhanced, making every look unique and tailor-made. Like contouring for makeup, sculptoning for blonde hair uses darker shades to sculpt and enhance the look. Eyes and cheekbones will be highlighted, balancing better the face features. The shades of blondes created are the ideal ones for the skin colour and unique facial features of the models/clients.

Both looks are stunning! Take a closer look below and watch the video HERE
