Shine-On Hair Color Lights was an idea included in the 1974 iconic La Coupe Art Deco Collection. My idea, which the salon talents interpreted brilliantly, was that color would be applied just where the light hits on straight hair.
The color could be any highlight tone or, as here, more daring colors of blue, burgundy or gold on dark hair. Very daring in 1974. This idea got tons of press in all the major consumer magazines at the time and Shine-On, a name I invented, was later used by a major color company! For more, much more, how-to’s, click here:
