We firmly believe that Hair Colour is for everyone, let us help you find your vibe.
Elton Steve Vessoaker, Hair Specialist, Makeup artist, & Educator shared, I am extremely excited to be part of curating the second edition of the Kromatic Collection. As a hairstylist, I love breaking stereotypes and as a brand that has a global voice, Wella Professionals always allows me to change the tide by using my expertise into making new experiences for my customers. To create a unique look for Prakruti Mishra, I tried to match her spirited personality creating the #Electric Copper look that shows her fun and adventurous take on life and amps up the electrifying flare of her persona. The Kromatic 2.0 collection allows hairstylists to help consumers in their journey of self expression and I believe that a personalised hair color is the ideal way of allowing people to express their individuality
Placid Braganza, Owner at Placid Salon, stated, Being associated with Wella Professionals is always a matter of prestige, and coming together to curate the Kromatic Collection once again gives me all the more pleasure and excitement. The thrill of delving into the unknown and customising a hair color that suits a specific personality gives me a great amount of satisfaction as a hairstylist. For Shivaleeka Oberoi, the challenge was in creating a look that matches her gorgeous and chic personality and at the same time allows her to unleash her inner diva. This glamorous #CaramelBrown look suits her perfectly. To match the great texture of her hair which has immense bounce, I dabbled with the color types of cool brown and blonde hues resulting in a gorgeous caramel brown hair color. The color exudes classic highlights and gives her hair the right amount of pop.
Natasha Naegamvala, Director Nalini of Nalini and Yasmin Salon explained, I believe hair color is for everyone and the Kromatic 2.0 collection is proof of that. No matter your age, personality, style, or vibe, everyone has a unique personal style and Wella Kromatic encourages you to discover that with help from your expert – the hairstylist. I loved working on the new Kromatic 2.0 Collection by Wella Professionals as it gave me the perfect platform to create something new. To match Neelam’s bold personality I knew I wanted something Fearless and chic. I opted for creating a customised look with #MagnificentPink. I took slices of the hairline and worked back, and towards the center of her hair so that the color stands out through the perimeter of her hair, frames her face perfectly.
Nikhil Sharma, Founder at Nikhil Sharma Hairdressing, adds, Being a part of Wella Professionals has always been a matter of great pride. This year I am thrilled to create yet another exclusive look for the Kromatic 2.0 Collection. For Rohit who has been averse to color, I wanted to create something classic yet edgy to compliment his dashing personality. I experimented with the technique of dual toning using visual freehand to unlock the IceBrown Hair color for Rohit. This customised hair color displayed a smooth and swift transition from icy cool tones to blended browns. As stylists we have the power to create transformative changes which can give a consumer the necessary confidence boost that they are looking for.
