This is the Peluquerias Magazine Cover for June 2018, #555.   It features colorific hair by Lori Zabel, a NAHA/PBA Finalist for 2018 in the Haircolor category.  Lori was inspired by the geometric looks of the season for cut and color. “The ’70s also inspired me, and the styles of Biba in London. I love doing color that has a perfect palette and a quirky bit of color that isn’t expected,” she said. “I cut the hair blunt with a bit of softness at the sides and back. the blonde color was finished with a cool clean white blonde.   I sectioned the hair in its exact finish so it would lay perfectly in its geometric place. The black color is a permanent color so it won’t run into the other colors, the bright colors were with Redken City Beats because they don’t run either (very important with such blonde hair.) The yellow was mixed with a yellow and gold to get the perfect tone, and the blue was mixed for vibrancy with a bit of a vintage feel.” Congratulations Lori Zabel. Wishing you well on July 27 when the Winners will be announced in Las Vegas.
BREAKING NEWS.  JULY 30.   Lori Zabel was the Winner in the Hair Color Category for NAHA 2018.
