A rose tone and a deep chocolate create a softness and bold placements on a deconstructed bob. The color was done in slightly off centered quadrants to create a sweeping effect for strong, independent women. This is one stunning photo from The Tilt Collection by Julie Vriesinga, Salon Entrenous, nominated for the North American Hairstylist of the Year (NAHA) Awards, in two of the 14 categories. The Finalist, a Canadian, was voted North American Hairstylist of the Year and Master Stylist of the Year in 2020, quite an achievement winning over all the talented Americans and other Canadians who entered the annual event which will takes place this year on August 29th, 2021 in Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Convention Center.

Innovative Re-Engineered Old School Waves – 2015

These innovative old school waves were “re-engineered” by Robert Grimes of RLG Salon in Texas. He created them with comb and fingers, working diagonally from crown to the hairline, waiting for each section to dry before going to the next section. He was a Finalist in 3 categories for The North American Hairdressing Awards in 2015 – NAHA – and won the prestige award of Hairstylist of the Year for this and (not shown) a veiled look all made of hair which took 3 weeks to get 2 square feet of usable netting, plus a braided process, which “took 10 hours of finger numbing work.”
